Things to know before heading to Panerathon on Sunday

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - If you're signed up with run or walk in Sunday's Panerathon, event organizers are encouraging you to give yourself plenty of time to get to the event.

"We want every body to get down here if they haven't registered yet and if they need to pick up their bags as early as possible because we start lining everybody up right at 9:45 a.m.," said Liz Fiorino with Covelli Enterprises.

Roads will close at 7:45 a.m. Sunday for Panerathon.

Commerce and Federal Streets are two of the largest closures, and unlike in years past, there will be no parking on-site at the Covelli Centre due to a concert that's taking place later that day.  

"There are plenty of surface lots and garages that will be open many of them free to Panerathon participants, most of them will be under $5 for people to park," said Fiorino.

Race packet pick-up runs from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday.  Runners and walkers will also have a chance to pick up their bags at the Covelli Centre on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and again on race day, Sunday, beginning at 8 a.m.

"For any of our timed runners, they will get a race chip and that has to go on their shoe.  So, they can tie it right into their shoe laces in order for it to work.  Then after the race they can recycle that chip.  We'll have plenty of bins around the grounds for them to do so," said Fiorino.

Race bags are available in the Team Shop near the Refresh Dental Entrance.
