A charity walk may move to Durham because of Raleigh's new rules for road races and events.
Starting in 2016, the Triangle Walk to Defeat ALS won't be allowed to use its usual downtown route on its current weekend in April. The Raleigh City Council refused to grant a policy exemption on Tuesday, and organizer Jerry Dawson said the event likely will leave the city as a result.
The problem is that the walk falls on the second weekend of April, a week before the Rock 'n' Roll Raleigh Marathon. The new Raleigh race rules, approved this year, say events can't cross the same parts of town on consecutive weekends.
