Circle Drive Affected Friday for 5K Race

The Cypress College Veterans Organization is holding its 2nd Annual 5K Run/Walk in partnership with non-profit veterans organization Save the Brave on Friday, April 27. All of the proceeds will go toward assisting student veterans with scholarships, emergency grants, and camaraderie-building events.

The race will take participants throughout campus, including Circle Drive. Please note:

  • Circle Drive and parking lots will remain open during the event, but entrance and exit closures will begin at 10:30 a.m.;
  • the Valley View entrance will remain open throughout the day;
  • the Holder entrance/exit will be closed until 12:30 p.m.;
  • the Orange entrance will be closed until 12:30 p.m., but vehicles may still use the exit.

Participants will be on Circle Drive for approximately one hour starting at 11 a.m. They will be instructed to remain in the left (inside) lane. Vehicles should drive in the right (outside) lane; there will be signs along Circle Drive reminding drivers of this. Please be mindful of runners and drive carefully on campus.

Volunteers wearing bright green vests will direct traffic and be out to ensure everyone’s safety. Please follow their directions.
