Rock n Roll Marathon is this weekend: fun to watch, and watch out for road closures

The annual Rock n Roll Marathon comes through our neighborhood again this Saturday. The event, which has rock bands on stages at various spots around the route, is a pretty fun people watching activity -- and it also means there will be some closed streets in the mornings.

In our area, four streets near will be closed:

Columbia Rd NW between Adams Mill and Harvard, Harvard between Columbia and 5th, and 5th and 4th between Harvard and W, and Bryant from 4th to North Capitol, all from 7am to 11:30am.

There will be band stages at 5th and Harvard (right next to McMillan Reservoir) and at North Capitol and Bryant.

In the past, I've found the hill at Harvard from Sherman to Georgia is a good spot: people tend to bunch up there (it's a hill!) and appreciate the encouragement from spectators.

Here's the full list of closures and full course map, which is also below.

Thanks to Park View DC for the heads-up
