DG’s 5K Challenge - Here's the road closures you need to know about

It's almost annual DG’s 5K Challenge time! And while we're really excited, we wanted to remind you of the road closures this weekend so you don't get caught out!

The event takes place this Sunday (September 29) and in order to facilitate it, Elgin Avenue between Hospital Road and the former Humber Lane will be closed from 6 pm on Saturday (September 28) until 12 pm on Sunday.

The event begins at 6 am in front of the Government Administration Building and participants will travel east along Elgin Avenue, turn south onto Huldah Avenue, then west onto Smith Road, travel south along Walkers Road, west onto Melmac Drive, then north along South Church Street and Harbour Drive, before turning east onto Fort Street, south on Edward Street, and returning to the GAB via Elgin Avenue.

The event is expected to finish by 9.30 am.

Motorists are advised to exercise caution when travelling in these areas on Sunday morning.
