AUBURN — Race three of this year’s Greater L-A Triple Crown 5K Series will be held Sunday, Aug. 24, starting at the Rollerdrome.

The 5-kilometer run begins at 8:30 a.m. on Riverside Drive, where traffic delays are expected.

The runners will cross South Bridge into Lewiston, turn left onto Oxford Street and head into Simard/Payne Memorial Park. After looping through the park, they will cross the trestle bridge and turn right onto the Riverwalk in Auburn, go behind Festival Plaza and return to Main Street through a tunnel near Gritty McDuff’s.

Runners will turn right and cross Longley Bridge, head up Lewiston’s Main Street and turn right on Canal Street, which will be closed to traffic, and continue all the way to Locust Street. From there, they will turn right and head downhill to Lincoln Street, make another right and run to Cedar Street, and turn left, heading back over South Bridge. After turning left on Riverside Drive, they will finish in front of the Rollerdrome.

Proceeds from this year’s Bridge Run will go to the Bridge Run Foundation, funding scholarships for local teens to participate in outdoor activities.

Registration is $20 in advance; $25 on race day.

Parking is available at the parking garage on the corner of Lincoln and Chestnut, or at the surface lot at the corner of Lincoln and Cedar.
