Albany --  Think twice before you make weekend plans in Albany. Several roadways will be effected by this weekend's first Snickers Marathon Energy Bar Marathon.

The race course will cover much of Albany and a small part of Dougherty County. Because the race is a timed event, drivers will have to wait for runners to clear an area before traffic will be allowed through. Many streets will be narrowed to a single lane to make way for runners and several streets may be completely blocked.

"Along areas of Gillionville and Westover, Westover and Westgate, Dawson Road at Greenwood, Slappey and 14th Avenue and Whispering Pines, those are some of the major intersections where the runners will be trying, crossing the road so traffic may be stopped there for a period of time," said Lisa Riddle, Albany-Dougherty Convention Services Manager. 

The race course will be open from 7:00 to 2:00, but most runners should finish by noon. Streets downtown will also be closed for the 1/2 Marathon, Bike Race, and Mardi Gras. Broad and Pine Avenues between Jackson and Front, Front Street and part of Roosevelt will also be closed.
