Road Closures for 40th Virginia 10 Miler Saturday

Lynchburg, VA - While organizers of the Virginia 10 Miler prepare for the area's biggest race of the year, drivers should prepare for some road closures.

Langhorne Road, Rivermont Terrace and Rivermont Avenue will shut down from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday.

Race organizers recommend drivers move their cars out of the area tonight and runners show up no later than 7 a.m. for the race Saturday.

"We're gonna have a record turnout, more people on our course than ever. We'll have more than 3,800 participating in all events on Saturday. So, we'd love the community to come out and support them," said Race Director Jeff Fedorko.

If you are running in the race and haven't picked up your information packet, it isn't too late. Organizers will be handing them out in front of E.C. Glass High School from 6:30 a.m. to 7:15 a.m. Saturday.
