This route would affect Muskrat Street (single lane traffic) and result in a closure of the Legacy Trail (from Banff to the eastern Park Gates). 

NOTICE OF POTENTIAL ROUTE CHANGE
In the event of a route change due to wildlife activity on the course, an alternate route has been planned that will affect businesses and residents along Buffalo, Muskrat, and Fox, Banff Ave and a full closure of the Legacy Trail (east) from Banff to the eastern Park Gates. Please check for route updates and route changes at banffmarathon.com under “Route” up to and including June 16. Please note that changes could be made up until the morning of Sunday, June 16.
