Thousands of runners are getting ready to step out for the second annual Nottingham 10K.
The event – which will generate a huge cash boost for local charities – takes place on Sunday 28th May.
The race organisers, Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All, are now advising runners, spectators, residents and visitors that a number of the area’s roads will be closed or have access restricted to ensure the safety of all those taking part.
Closures will begin from 5am and will affect roads around the 10K course. Routes will reopen on a rolling timetable as soon as it is safe to do so. Some parking suspensions will be in place from Saturday 27th.
The race starts at 9.30am on Lady Bay Bridge, close to the City Ground, and the course takes the field along Trent Boulevard, Adbolton Lane and into Holme Pierrepont Country Park for a lap of the pretty regatta lake.
It’s then on to the finish back at the City Ground, via Holme Road.
Among the roads affected by the closures are: Adbolton Grove, Adbolton Lane, Holme Road, Lady Bay Bridge, Trent Boulevard and Scarrington Road. There will also be parking restrictions on Adbolton Grove, Adbolton Lane and Trent Boulevard.

Tristan Batley-Kyle, Course Director, with organisers Run For All, said: “We work very hard to keep any disruption to a minimum and all roads are re-opened as soon as possible. Unfortunately, a certain amount of disruption is inevitable and we’d like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.”
The event’s official partner charities are: Jane Tomlinson Appeal, Macmillan Cancer Support, Framework, Nottingham Hospitals Charity, Treetops Hospice, Mysight, Equation, Cerebral Palsy Support and Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance.
