Thousands of runners are coming to Provo for the 2015 Utah Valley Marathon on Saturday, June 13. Participants will be running on roads from the mouth of Provo Canyon on University Avenue to 300 South. We want them to be safe so some driving pattern adjustments will need to be made on that day. University Avenue will be closed during the time of the event from 6:00 AM to about 2:00 PM. If you need to get across University Avenue, please do so on 300 South. Provo Canyon will be down to one lane as the second lane will be designated to runners. Expect major delays as the right-of-way will go to the nearly 8,000 runners.
