Run For All provide road closure advice ahead of 2018 Asda Foundation Nottingham 10K in aim to cause minimal disruption for local commuters.
Nottingham prepares to welcome thousands of road runners for the 3rd annual Asda Foundation Nottingham 10K on Sunday 12th August.
The popular road run, which starts at 9.30am, is set to raise tens of thousands of pounds for local charitable causes and will feature a new route for runners to enjoy.
The race organisers, Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All, are now advising runners, spectators, residents and visitors that a number of roads will be closed or have access restricted to ensure the safety of all those taking part.
The road closures will begin at 9.00am with roads being reopened as soon as it is safe to do so, in the aim of causing minimal disruption to local commuters.
Roads affected by the race include Adbolton Grove, Adbolton Lane, Holme Road and Trent Boulevard.
There will also be parking restrictions westbound on Trent Boulevard, northbound on Adbolton Grove and on Adbolton Lane.
Starting at Nottingham Rugby Club, the new 10K route will take runners eastbound on Trent Boulevard and then onto Adbolton Lane to reach Holme Pierrepont National Watersports Centre. After completing a lap of the Club Regatta, runners will travel on to Adbolton Lane before turning up Adbolton Grove, along Holme Road and back into Nottingham Rugby Club for the finish line.
Organised by Run For All, the Asda Foundation Nottingham 10K forms part of the legacy of the late Jane Tomlinson CBE who raised £1.85m for charity by completing a number of gruelling endurance challenges – despite being diagnosed with incurable cancer.
Tristan Batley-Kyle, Head of Events at Run For All, said: “We do try very hard to keep any closures to a minimum but, inevitably, some are necessary for the safety of the participants and spectators. We apologise for any inconvenience that may be caused and would like to thank people in advance for their patience and support.”
People taking part in the 10K are welcome to run for fun, for a charity close to their hearts or one of the Asda Foundation Nottingham 10K’s partner charities.
The race's official partner charities are the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, MacMillan Cancer Support, Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance, Rosie May Foundation, Equation, Nottingham Hospitals Charity, Notts County Football in the Community, Canaan Trust, My Sight Nottinghamshire and Treetops Hospice Care.
