New Route for Tour deCatur May Cause Delays in Downtown Decatur This Saturday

Decatur Active Living’s Cheryl Burnette sends along this notice…

This Saturday, the annual Tour deCatur Run/Walk will be occurring in downtown Decatur. Due to the storm water construction in front of Decatur High School, the route will vary from past years. The new route begins on Commerce in back of the high school, then turns right on Trinity. The one mile Fun Run will begin on N McDonough next to Chick-Fil-A and turn right on Trinity as well. The new starts will result in a temporary road closure on East Trinity Place.

There will also be short road closures on N. McDonough from West Howard to Trinity Place and on Commerce from West Howard to West Trinity Place.

Please be patient with the race and consider taking a which works to help Decatur youth realize their full potential, not only in the classroom but also through learning experiences that contribute to personal development.

  2. Err . . . did anyone proofread the last paragraph of the article? DId we lose a sentence or two?

  3. Where is the actual map of the new route? Can’t seem to find it on the Tour deCatur website.

  4. Scooter- totally my fault – lost some words in the cut and paste I sent to DM- the end should read:
