Grandad Half Marathon weekend begins Friday

If you’re looking for something to do this Mother’s Day weekend, why not head outside and get some exercise.

Festival Foods  is kicking off its annual Grandad Half Marathon Friday.

The three day event offers something for everyone  from a bike races to a 5K run/walk. There are also youth races and even health and fitness expos.

Organizers say with more than 4,000 people taking part in the event, drivers should expect some delays out on the road.

“There are several road closures, so expect delays around the downtown area, where the 5-k goes and the half marathon route. There’s a lot of the half marathon route where we’re just using half of the road, so the other half is still open,” said event coordinator  Sheena Gifford-Whitesitt
