On the morning of Wednesday, June 23rd, members of the Yuba City Police Department, Sutter County Sheriff’s Office, California Highway Patrol, Yuba County Sheriff’s Dept., and other local public safety agencies will carry a lit torch across Yuba City and into Marysville as part of the Special Olympics Northern California ceremonies. The run is set to begin at 9am in front of the Yuba Sutter CHP office located at 1619 Poole Blvd.
Members of the public are welcome to cheer on the runners from the side of the road, however the actual run will be limited to predesignated local law enforcement personnel. The route of the run should not interrupt traffic nor cause any substantial delays. Route: From 1619 Poole Blvd. - Eastbound Poole Blvd. to southbound Civic Center Blvd, to eastbound Colusa Ave. Participants will be running on the south sidewalk of Colusa Ave. towards the 10th Street Bridge. A short stop will be made in front of Wheeler Auto Center where the torch will be handed off to Yuba County personnel. Runners will then continue on Colusa Avenue over the bridge into Marysville until they reach 7th Street. Runners will head east on 7th Street until they reach their final destination at 720 Yuba Street, which happens to be the Yuba County Sheriff’s Department. The lit torch will then continue on its journey until it reaches its final destination at the opening ceremonies of the Summer Games at the UC Davis Stadium on Saturday, June 26th .
