Road Closure Information
The event start line has been moved this year to Blackstock Street on the Liverpool side to remove any need for Liverpool road use other than Blackstock Street itself which will be used as a muster point only.
Runners will exit the Kingsway Tunnel at Oakdale Avenue shortly after 9.45am moving toward the Dock Road where they will then turn left toward Birkenhead Road. They will then pass through Victoria Place onto the promenade, at the end of Magazine Promenade at Vale Park, runners will then use Tower Promenade and Marine Promenade as far as the Floral Pavilion at which point runners will use the Perch Rock access road to run around the Marine Lake to finish on Ian Fraser Walk.
There will be a road closure and diversionary plan in place along these roads whilst the event is in progress. The westbound side of Dock Road will remain open and the northbound side of Birkenhead Road will be passable with care as the runners will cross from left to right off the roundabout at the bottom of Kelvin Road. Traffic will NOT be able to pass from Tower Road to Birkenhead Road whilst the race is in progress.
Residents in Birkenhead Road will be able to exit the road via Church Road, returning via Kelvin Road. Residents in Borough Road East/Demesne Street and Seacombe View can exit via the roundabout at Victoria Place through Church Road southwards. The affected roads will be opened as soon as the last runner passes each point which at Victoria Place will be approximately 10.30am. Diversionary routes on the approaches to all of these roads will be in place on the morning and advance warning signs will be posted one week before the event.
I hope that you will not be inconvenienced on the day and that this advance warning of the traffic management will allow you to plan your day. Should you require any further information please contact me, details on our contact page
