Fayetteville, N.C. — Runners in Sunday's All-American Marathon will get a tour of Fort Bragg along the route.
The race, which begins at 6:30 a.m. in Festival Park in Fayetteville, winds through downtown, past the Airborne and Special Operations Museum and through the heart of the military post, said spokesman Tom McCullom.
"We're going to have equipment displayed. Runners are going to go by Pope Field. The aircraft will be out there," he said.
Several streets near the Festival Park will be closed to traffic Sunday morning, including Ray Avenue, Hay Street and a part of Person Street.
Sunday's events include the full 26.2-mile marathon, a 13.1-mile half marathon and a 5K.
