RALEIGH, N.C. , Jan. 17 -- The city of Raleigh issued the following news: On Sunday, April 13 , a novel combination of live musical performances and a marathon road race will take to the streets of Raleigh . In spite of the convergence of live entertainment, road closures associated with a 26.2-mile race, and Palm Sunday , organizers assured the Raleigh City Council on January 7 that they expect a smooth event. The Raleigh City Council approved adjustments to the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon race in order to accommodate church services. With the inclusion of live music performers at various stops along the race course, the organizers of the race also assured the Council that the concerts would not be intrusive to nearby residents. Under the new route, runners will start on S. Salisbury Street between Davie Street and Cabarrus Street .
