The city of Clovis will have major road closures Sunday for preparation and cleanup for The Color Run 5-kilometer race.
Road closures begin at 7 a.m. Sunday and will last until about noon. Clovis Avenue will be closed to traffic between Santa Ana and Third Street. The intersections at Shaw and Barstow avenues, and Fifth Street will be open to eastbound and westbound traffic by 10:15 a.m., city officials said.
Drivers are encouraged to plan their routes or have enough time to travel the area safely. The Color Run begins at 8 a.m. Sunday.
Runners can still sign up for The Color Run, which benefits Clovis Area Recreation programs. Sign-ups are available from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at Sierra Vista Mall. Sign-ups also are available Sunday, but those signing up Sunday are encouraged to get to the starting area at Sierra Vista Mall early.
Previous "color runs" in the Fresno area have drawn thousands of participants who are showered at key points along the route by colored corn starch.
