Divas descending on Peachtree City this weekend

The Divas Half Marathon and 5K being held in Peachtree City, GA on Saturday, September 6, 2014 will feature both a 13.1 mile loop course and a 3.1 mile loop course starting and finishing at Shakerag Knoll using both city roads and the cart path. The event will start at 7:15am with the 5K race, followed by the half marathon starting at 7:30am.  All events will conclude no later than 11:30am.
The event will follow a rolling enclosure, which means that traffic will be affected for a short period starting about 15 minutes before the first runner enters a section and ending about 15 minutes after the last runner leaves that section.
Runners will be off most roads and on the cart path by 9:10am and Peachtree City safety officials will reopen the roads as soon as race operations cease.  Certain sections of the cart paths will be affected from 8:10am to 11:30am and residents are asked find alternate path routes while runners are on the path.  Race officials have posted a detailed map of the race route, showing the times when runners will be in the different sections of the race route.
This map can be found at www.runlikeadiva.com/closures.
However, the following is a summary of roads which will be affected by the route during the designated times:

McIntosh Trail from Fishers Luck to Skiff Trace:   6:00am – 12:00pm
McIntosh Trail from Skiff Trace to S Peachtree Pkwy: 6:00am – 8:00am
McIntosh Trail from S Peachtree Pkwy to Robinson Rd (westbound lane only): 7:30am – 8:10am
Robinson Rd between McIntosh Trail and Crosstown Dr (southbound lane only):   7:35am – 8:25am
Robinson Rd between Crosstown Dr and S Peachtree Pkwy (southbound lane only):   7:40am – 8:45am
Robinson Rd between S Peachtree Pkwy and Holly Grove Rd (southbound lane only): 7:50am – 9:00am
Holly Grove Rd between Robinson Rd and Aster Ridge Tr (southbound lane only):   7:55am – 9:10pm

Further, there will be some additional delays on Cameron Trail at the cart path crossing from 8:30am to 10:30am and on McIntosh Trail at the cart path crossing just west of Robinson Rd from 8:35am to 10:35am, as runners will be crossing thru these areas during those times.
Race officials ask residents and businesses to follow the detours and instructions from race representatives to ensure a safe event for the participants and the residents.  They also suggest planning an earlier start during those times to avoid delays.   Residents can contact race organizers with any questions via email at community@runlikeadiva.com.
