“We held a multi-agency meeting this afternoon and reviewed the race course. We brought our private landscaping contractor to help clear the course along with the City Parks Department. We have been assured we are not putting any undue stress on the city system or resources, therefore we will proceed as planned,” said Kari Watkins, Marathon Race Director.
