More than 50,000 participants are expected to register for the 2008 Race for the Cure, the 17th annual event to raise funds for breast cancer research and education. From 7:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, September 21 there will be multiple street closures for the event in downtown, the Pearl District and Old Town Chinatown.
Walkers and runners follow a loop route from Waterfront Park to Broadway to Naito Parkway that limits access to many downtown locations during the race. In downtown, north/south streets west of Broadway and east/west streets south of Main Street will not be affected. Be patient; there are ways to get around!
