Temporary road closures for Burton Memorial Day 5k Run/Walk

BURTON, MI --- The City of Burton once again brings you the Burton Memorial Day 5k Road Race! The race will be Monday, May 30th, 2022. The race starts at 8:30 AM at Atherton High School on Genesee Road, proceeds north on Genesee to Atherton Road, East on Atherton to Coin Street, then around the loop on Connecticut and back to Atherton Road. Runners and walkers will then proceed a bit further east on Atherton before turning around at Walker Farms and heading back to Genesee Road, crossing the finish line at the High School. The race should be finished close to 10:00 AM.

To keep race participants safe, the following roads will be closed for short periods of time between 8:30 AM and 10:00 AM that day: Genesee Road (starting at Atherton High School), Atherton Road (from Genesee to Walker Farms), Coin and Connecticut.

Mayor Duane Haskins invites residents to join in the fun and cheer on the runners and walkers! We are sure they will appreciate the encouragement.
