The following roads may be closed or have temporary restrictions during the race.

All roads along the route will be subject to traffic management procedures to ensure the safety of the runners and marshals, but in all cases will be kept to the minimum required. We appreciate the support and patience of the local community.

Runners not reaching the 9 mile mark at Sainsbury’s before midday will be directed along a slightly different route, using pavements so that the roads may reopen for the lunch time traffic.

We sincerely value the support of local residents and businesses, and will endeavour to keep all disruption to an absolute minimum. Closures in place from 8am and will reopen as the last runner passes.
