Driving through Sidney this Sunday? Keep your eyes peeled for runners and road closures.

The Town of Sidney and Frontrunners are hosting a first-ever Sidney Seaside 10K Race on Sunday, September 24, 2017.

The Race includes a 10K and 5K route as well as a kid’s dash through the downtown core, looping back along the picturesque, ocean walkway and finishing back in Beacon Park.

With stunning ocean and mountain views along the route combined with a flat course and lively post-event party, it’s not surprising that registration has entirely filled up.

And though the sold-out event is sure to be a celebration of fitness and fun, it’ll also have a big effect on morning traffic.

Road closures will be in effect from 10:00 am to approximately 11:15 am.

Full road closures in both directions:

– Malaview Avenue
– Resthaven Drive
– All Bay – Bowden – Harbour Road
– Bowerbank Road
– Beacon Avenue
– A short portion of the waterfront walkway

One way closures:

– Fifth Street
– Third Street
– Mt. Baker
– Second Street

The Town of Sidney has said that they “regret any inconvenience these road closures may cause”. However, access to businesses and residents will still be available by foot.
