Quibell Park is a perfect venue for your family and friends to watch you start and finish the race. The finish is excellent as runners will finish by running clockwise around the athletics track for around 250m. The concourse around the track is big enough for literally hundreds of family members to cheer you in as you speed around the track. With the rousing sound of our commentator on the PA system, this will be a really rousing finish to a fast, flat and friendly Valentine 10k race.

Road closures

The race will be run on totally closed roads.

As race organisers our number one priority is safety. We will have a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order in place for the race. This is legally binding and prevents traffic from entering the race route and some surrounding streets before and during the race.

We acknowledge that this may cause some disruption to some people, but respectfully ask you to plan ahead, making minor adjustments to your normal routine. You will see lots of people in hi viz jackets at all road junctions. These are volunteers who are giving up their time to make the event safe and enjoyable for all. We ask that you are kind and respectful of these super volunteers.

 

We will be going to significant lengths to advertise the road closures

  • Hundreds of letters delivered to residents and businesses on the route
  • Local media awareness
  • Social media posts
  • Advanced signage on the route a week before race day
  • Signed diversionary routes

Full details of specific roads affected will be posted here several weeks prior to the race.

ROAD CLOSURE: SUNDAY 14th FEBRUARY 2021

To ensure the safety of all competitors and other road users the local authority have granted a temporary road closure order for the route.  A traffic management company have also been assigned to ensure that runners are not faced with cars on the route.

Security Advice

Security Advice

In view of the current increased security threat facing everyone in the UK, we have been provided sound advice by the police on how we can all stay safe. There is no need for anyone to be alarmed, we want everyone to enjoy the race as normal, but ask that you remain alert and vigilant.

Please report any unattended baggage or suspicious activity to an event marshal.

If using the baggage buses, you must show your runner number prior to handing the bag to our volunteers.

Don’t leave bags unattended or anywhere they could cause a security scare. And never agree to look after anyone else’s bags, no matter how plausible their story.
In an emergency, if you think there is an immediate risk, always call 999 and look around you for help from race marshals.

Remember, the chance of being caught in a terrorism incident is small. But if it happens – Run, Hide, Tell.
