Road Closures

Roads that are closed on or close to the race route will be closed for the minimum amount of time necessary. Our timing estimates shown on the road closure schedule are intended as maximum closure times - roads will not be closed any earlier than the stated closing time, but may open earlier than re-opening time.

Whilst we appreciate frustration for drivers, we do all we can to provide advance notice of closures and to keep disruption to an absolute minimum. On race day, our marshals and road safety officers will provide current, accurate information to the best of their knowledge with respect to timings and alternative routes. It is hoped that the benefit to the town and all those running or spectating is greater than the disruption caused by temporary road closures. If you are unable to travel by road for a short period during the race, please be patient. Abusive or intimidating behaviour towards staff and volunteers will be reported to the police. For details on roads that are closed or popular routes that are affected, please see our schedule of road closures below.
