The new routes will feature a start line in Cleveland's historic Public Square and a finish line outside Cuyahoga County Courthouse on Lakeside with finishing festivities on the grassy areas of Mall B and Mall C around the newly renovated Convention Center.

Most closures will open up gradually as runners finish up the race on Sunday.

Exact road closures and a look at entire course is posted on the Cleveland Marathon website.

If you're heading downtown, RTA is a great option for avoiding traffic and parking headaches.
