Sedona Marathon Temporary Road Closures and Delays

Sedona Marathon runners

Sedona AZ (January 28, 2012) – The Sedona Marathon, Half-Marathon, 10K and 5K event will be held on Saturday, February 4, 2012 beginning at 8:00 a.m. with temporary road closures scheduled during the days event.

This year, the City of Sedona will be closing down one lane of westbound SR 89A from Calle del Sol to Dry Creek Road. Businesses and residences on the north side of SR 89A in this area will not have highway access during that time period. The remaining lane will remain open for westbound traffic.

Dry Creek Road from SR 89A to White Bear Road will be closed to all traffic from 8:00 a.m. until approximately 10:00 a.m.

The new start and finish line was relocated from the Cultural Park to the rear of the Sedona Medical Center building, and as a result of this change, Navoti Drive from Bristlecone Pines Drive to Calle del Sol will be closed to traffic the entire day.

The temporary road closures and delays are necessary to provide a safer environment for event participants.

Access to State Route 89A via Thunder Mountain Road may also experience short delays depending on runner traffic along Dry Creek Road.

Area residents are encouraged to plan traffic related activities prior to or after the scheduled road closure and delays. Sedona Police Officers and Sedona Fire District personnel will be available in these areas in case of any emergency needs or service requests.

The City of Sedona and the Sedona Marathon thank area residents for their patience and understanding for any inconvenience the marathon road closures and delays may cause. For more information on the Sedona Marathon or the temporary Dry Creek Road closure and area delays, contact Cmdr. Ron Wheeler, Field Services Division, at 928-203-5004 and visit the Sedona Marathon website for event schedule.
