To make this day safe and enjoyable for everyone taking part, we have arranged road closures throughout the morning and early afternoon along the following routes:

Tillington Road between the Roman Road (A4103) and the crossroads near Burghill Valley Valley Golf Club between 10am and 11am.

Diversions will be in place, with marshals on hand to answer any queries and allow access to and from homes and businesses when deemed safe to do so. Please be aware that the 5K event, featuring 300 runners of all ages, will take place on the Roman Road between the Stretton Sugwas roundabout and the Tillington turning. This means there will be a strict road closure in place with no access between 10.20am and 11.20am.

Every year, runners tell us how much they appreciate the support from spectators along the route, and we know they would appreciate your backing again this year. We are sorry for any inconvenience the road closures may cause, and would like to thank the local community for their support and understanding.
