Marathon Leads To Rolling Street Closures

Race Director John Mansoor admits he's gotten some unhappy feedback from folks who get stuck in traffic waiting for runners to pass by.

"There are a few folks who sometimes are not aware of the event. But most people are very understanding of this."

That's because Mansoor says the race pumps close to $8 million into the local economy.

"We fill up the hotel rooms from downtown all the way out to Folsom and a lot of people shop when they're here too, it being Christmas time."

More than 12,000 people will be running…either the whole 26.2 mile marathon or in four-person relays.

Fair Oaks Boulevard and other nearby roads will be closed much of Sunday morning to accommodate the race
