Hangover Classic 10K means road closures to start New Year [Crescent Hill]

Print

If for no other reason, you have to appreciate the Hangover Classic 10K run for its tongue-in-cheek playfulness.

The annual New Year’s Day road race takes the attitude that there is no better time to start keeping New Year’s resolutions that the early part of January 1st, and offers those promising to stay in shape an opportunity to make rubber meet road right out of the gate.

The truth of the matter is that a race of this caliber is primarily only interesting to dedicated, hardcore runners - people who plan in advance to do a 10-mile road race the morning after the biggest party night of the year.

If you are not one of these select, the Hangover Classic will most affect you with related road closures.

Below, see a list of where to tread carefully if you happen to be out in the first half of Saturday morning:
