The Monument Avenue 10K will begin tomorrow morning, and an estimated 30,000 participants will take to city streets. Numerous road closures and “No Parking” zones will be in effect as a result.

During the event, Monument Avenue will be closed between Chantilly and Lombardy streets. Portions of other main streets will also be closed, including Broad Street, Grace Street, Franklin Street and Lombardy Street. (See maps below.)
