More runners will be racing through this Saturday afternoon

Late Saturday afternoon, another road race will come through College Hill. The 2014 Race the Bar 5K and 8K will begin Saturday at 4 p.m., downtown on South Elm Street.  Streets affected in College Hill will include Spring Garden, Tate, Walker, Carr, Mendenhall, McGee, Cedar, and Fulton.

Race organizers expect runners to reach the neighborhood by about 4:10 p.m. and be gone by 4:40. Police will be stationed along the way.

Maps of the routes are below. They’re similar but not exactly the same.
