If your route will involve downtown Fort Lauderdale roads today, you may encounter a slight traffic delay due to the Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run which will begin later this evening. Close to 4,500 runners will be racing today; the race begins at Southeast Second Street and Second Avenue and stretches to Las Olas Boulevard nearby Huizenga Plaza. The race will begin at 6:45 this evening, but roads will be closed off as early as 1 this afternoon.
Mercedes-Benz puts on this event every year –the first race was held in 1985- which shows the commitment the luxury car company has to keeping its employees physically active. Your mover here in Fort Lauderdale can relate to that! However; an annual foot race isn’t exactly necessary as we have fit movers out working hard on a daily basis. Moving heavy furniture is tough work for some, but if you have ever had an experience with our professional movers, you surely know how easy they make it look! Good luck to all who will be racing, and to all who will have to find an alternate route due to the temporarily blocked-off roads!
