The Carmel Road Racing Group and City of Carmel Police Department have worked closely together to plan the event route in a way to lessen the impact on road closures while ensuring the safety of race participants and volunteers.
The marathon begins and finishes at Carmel’s Palladium at the Center for Performing Arts (at 3rd Avenue and City Center Drive) with the course passing through many of the city's popular areas, including the Carmel Arts and Design District, Old Town Carmel and a variety of Carmel Clay Parks. All events begin at 7:30 a.m., with a maximum course time of 6.5 hours. The course and finish line will officially close at 2 p.m.
Both lanes of City Center Drive, eastbound and westbound, will close in front of Divvy on at 10 p.m. on April 21 and remain closed until 4:00 p.m. on April 22 for the start/finish area of the race. Traffic will be able to access City Center during those times.
