5K gets a delayed start at new location

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --This morning's Anthem 5K got off to a delayed start, and a lot of that had to do with some traffic issues near the race's new location.

The Snyder was packed for most of the morning before the race.
Runners hit the pavement shortly after 8:30am on a course that had them starting and finishing by the Anthem Building on Eastpoint Parkway in the East End.

Folks who make the Triple Crown an annual tradition are used to running downtown, but the Ohio River Bridges Project put a stop to that.

"Sometimes as a runner you get used to a course. It's nice to mix it up now and then," runner, Michael Gray said.

The 5K won't be able to move back to its old starting place, at Slugger Field, till 2017. Organizers say there shouldn't be many changes to the other legs of the Triple Crown, this year.
