SHUTTLE BUSES ON ESTER DOME ROAD PAST NORTH HENDERSON ROAD !!!!!
In the interest of reducing traffic on the 1 1/10 mile stretch of Ester Dome Road from North Henderson Road to the top of Ester Dome, shuttle buses will be on Ester Dome Road to transport runners and spectators up and down the hill. While local residents will still be allowed to drive to the top, all relay runners and support crew members and spectators will be asked to park their cars & trucks along Ester Dome Road below the point where Ester Dome Road intersects with North Henderson Road. At this point, runners and spectators will be asked to take the bus up and down Ester Dome Road. There will be two shuttle buses on the Ester Dome Road from 8:30 until approximately 1:00, and it is expected that buses will be on a 20 to 25 minute schedule. This should allow runners and walkers to have much less traffic and exhaust fumes to deal with as they make their way to the top of Ester Dome.
Please allow extra time to accommodate this new approach to getting folks to the top of Ester Dome as we try to improve conditions for the runners and walkers on this 1.1 mile stretch of the Equinox Marathon course.
