Two races are coming our way in May 2017: the Nordstrom Beat the Bridge run and the Emerald Bike Ride. Both of these races will impact Montlake and organizers want you to know about road closures.
Beat the Bridge on May 21 begins at Husky Stadium with runners then heading south across the Montlake Bridge. The race continues along 19th Ave, to E Lynn, right on Boyer and onto Fuhrman, and then over the University Bridge. This Neighborhood Letter has a complete list of street closures with times.
The Emerald Bike Ride on May 28 will traverse roads not normally open to bicyclists including the SR 520. Riders will be coming through the U District and Montlake between 6:15am-9am. Find more info on the Cascade Bicycle Club’s community info page.
These races are in addition to the Rock N Roll Marathon in June, which we wrote about here.
