    There is no reason that you need to shut down Rochester and Rochester Hills for this race, especially on a Sunday morning when people are traveling and heading to church. You should concentrate this around Oakland University. These roads are shut down for much longer than an hour and 15 minutes. I have lived in Rochester Hills for 30 years, and all of the traffic restrictions for this race are ridiculous.

  2. Diane Gardner says

    I can’t figure why you need to shut down streets in two cities when this run could be inside of OU or at Stoney Creek or any other park.

  3. Shutting down the streets for the race is ridiculous! I agree with others, why not use OU or a park that doesn’t disrupt the people that want to go to church. This should not be forced down our throats.
