Mark your calendars and make plans to enjoy the 2011 Nature Valley Grand Prix when it comes to Cannon Falls on Thursday, June 16! Watch the thrilling race and cheer on the professional athletes! Racers from across the globe will be competing in this race.
The In-Town Circuit is the same route as has been used in the past. A map highlighting the in-town circuit is on page 2. For safety reasons, there will be no parking allowed on the in-town circuit and in the Expo Area on race day. The expo portion of Mill Street will be closed at approximately 1:30 to allow set up time. If your business is located in the Expo area please advise your staff and customers of this time.
Also, during the race itself there will be BRIEF closures of certain streets and
intersections. The in-town circuit will be closed to traffic just before the first
racer enters the circuit and will remain closed until the end of that race.
(approx. 45 minutes). There will be about an hour between the women’s race and the
men’s race when traffic will be allowed to move into or out of the area. The men are
expected to be on the in-town circuit at 7:00 p.m. and their race should end by 7:20 p.m.
We expect the women back in town by 8:00 p.m. with their race ending at 8:20 p.m. At
6:15 we will be having the Kid’s Fun Race that will involve a portion of the in-town
circuit near the start/finish line.
