From Mission Bay Park to Fashion Valley and Friars Road to Golden Hill, traffic will be impacted by the annual Rock 'n' Roll Marathon. 

An estimated 30,000 runners and walkers are planning to participate in the weekend's events. Sunday's marathon will begin at the start line on 6th Avenue at Quince Drive and follow the marathon route to the finish line at Union and Ash streets downtown.
