The Publix Marathon runs through Decatur again this Sunday, so prepare your driving/cheering plans accordingly.
According to the schedule posted on the marathon’s website, you will see road closures around Decatur between 7:30a-11a. This is similar to previous years.
Also, remember to get out there and cheer for the marathon runners. The top 2 cheering zones this year win $1,500 and $1,000, respectively. In year’s past, the winnings have gone to support Decatur Active Living programs.
The Decatur Minute says that city staff “will be there with plenty of noisemakers, pom-poms, and doughnuts to share.” They also note the official groups will be located ” in front of Felini’s , the Old Courthouse, or near the Eastlake Marta Station.”
