Dear Fellow Burlington Resident / Business Owner,

On Thursday, July 18th, 2013 VR Pro is hosting our annual Eaton Electrical Downtown Dash 5K and 10K road races as indicated on the race route map on the back of this letter. Pledges and donations from the event support the Easter Seals Ontario organization. The races start at 7:15 PM and will be finished by 8:45 PM and about 700 entrants are expected. The 10K race is the Ontario Masters Road Race Championship.

Traffic Control:

  1. Pearl Street will be closed from James Street to Pine Street on Thursday, July 18th from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM to accommodate the start/finish line area.
  2. One lane of all race route roads will be coned off for the use of runners who will travel clockwise around the illustrated event route. Drivers are requested to use the remaining lane to travel in the opposite direction to the runners.
  3. Two-way traffic will be maintained on Lakeshore Rd and on Maple Ave during the race.
  4. Police will provide traffic control at all major intersection and road crossings.
