The Bermuda Police Service at a Press Conference advised the public on the Race Routes during the Bermuda Day Holiday.
Superintendent Darrin Simons said, “This year, after an absence of 37 years, the annual Bermuda Day Half Marathon Running Race will start in St. George’s Parish and finish in the City of Hamilton. The Bermuda Bicycle Association will also run their race from St. George’s and similarly will finish in the City of Hamilton. As a result, there will be new race routes and road closures in place to facilitate the races.
As in previous years, the Bermuda Police Service and the race organizers will have officers and marshals positioned along the route. They are there to minimize risks to all road users, especially the cyclists and runners. We are asking the motoring public to fully cooperate with any direction given by them and to familiarize yourselves with the new race route and the times that the roads will be closed. We all need to do our best to ensure there are no collisions with race participants as that could lead to serious injury or death.
On Monday morning, the roads along the race route will close at 8:30 in the morning.
Therefore persons who are traveling on morning flights out of the L.F. Wade International Airport need to be sure they are at the airport by 8am.
The roads will be opened when it is deemed safe to do so and delays up to an hour and a half or more should be expected. The routes for the races are as follows:
Sinclair Packwood Memorial Cycle Race:
8:50am Start: York Street – Mullet Bay Road, Kindley Field Road, The Causeway, Blue Hole Hill, North Shore Road Hamilton Parish, Middle Road Smith’s and Devonshire Parishes, Cavendish Road, Reid Street, left onto Court Street, right onto Front Street, Queen Street, Church Street, Cedar Avenue.

As a result of the changes to the race routes, the above roads will be closed from 8:30am until 12 noon. In addition:
No traffic will be allowed to travel in either direction during the cycle race. No traffic will be allowed to travel in the opposite direction to the marathon runners.
For persons intending to enter or exit the City of Hamilton, the following procedure will be in place; motorized traffic will be allowed to cross over/through the race route at the following junctions only:
