The Starved Rock Runners club has announced a route change for Sunday’s Canal Connection 10K.

The race will start and end in Utica this year, so runners will not be bused to LaSalle. The course will start behind the Canal Market building on Clark Street and will head east on the tow path for a little more than a mile, before a turn-around. The course then cuts across Utica and heads west on the tow path before coming back to the finish.

Packet pick-up, finish line, and after-party all will be at the old Waltham School on Canal Street.

The organization says the change is due to heavy rains that have hit the normal course.
