The 2009 Austin Marathon is Sunday, February 15. Start time is 7:00 a.m. The start and finish are downtown. As you may have noticed from signs posted around the neighborhood, part of the course is through Allandale and roads like Great Northern and Foster Lane will be closed from 6:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. To help you plan ahead, I've posted the map of the north course. Click here, and you will see all of the road closures and the roads that are part of the course but that will be partially open. Residents will be able to get in and out of the neighborhood. Here is a link to the Austin Marathon web site for complete information.
