2016 Rock n Roll marathon course

Come Saturday at 7:30 a.m., 25,000 runners will race across the District as part of the annual Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon.

Though those runners will likely bring with them cheering fans and tiny paper cups filled with sports drinks, they’ll also bring road closures, schedule adjustments and altered parking enforcement to the Capitol Hill area.

According to Metro:

When the race begins, buses north of the course will turn back at a point near a rail station, if possible, resuming their regular routes into Downtown D.C. as streets reopen.

There will be no regular service [south of the course] from the start of the race until the runners clear the Downtown area. Service south of Constitution Avenue will be restored as streets become available. Other Southeast locations will return to regular service after the race ends.

Metrobus riders should expect delays. The event will have a significant impact on the following Metrobus routes: 30N,30S, 31, 32, 34, 36, 38B, 42, 52, 54, 64, 70, 74, 79, 80, 90, 92, 96, A42, A46, A48, B2, D4, D6, D8, G2, H2, H4, L2, M6, N6, P6, S2, S4,U5, U6, X2 and X8.
