Information for Residents 2017
We want to minimise disruption for residents on race day. Here is some information to help you get about during the race.
You won't be able to drive on roads that are closed. Follow the link here for the maps and road closures.
If you live on the route and will need to leave by car during the road closure we advise that you move your car before the closure starts. If you live off the route you will need to avoid the closed roads, here is some advice for residents.
If you live in Holt or Farndon
Access in or out of Holt and Farndon is via the A534 which is open throughout the event. The A534 can be reached from the A493/A5156 to the west or the A41 to the east. The old bridge over the River Dee will be closed.
In Holt, residents of Green Street and adjoining roads will be assisted by marshals to cross safely heading south and exit onto Bridge Street or Castle Street.
In Farndon, residents of Townfield Lane, River Lane and neighbouring streets can leave the estate via Townfield Lane. Marshals will help you to cross safely to the southbound carriageway to access High Street heading east.
If you live in Churton
Access between Churton and Farndon is via Sibbersfield Lane. You will be able to use Sibbersfield Lane to leave the village via Farndon and the A534.
If you live in Aldford
If you need to leave Aldford by car between 10:30 and 12:00 we advise that you park away from the closed roads and access your car on foot. From 10:00 to 10:30 and after 12:00 the bridge on Chester Road over Aldford Brook will be controlled to allow vehicles to/from Aldford. All traffic must be via Chapel Lane and then the A41. There is no access to Churton from Aldford.
If you live in Huntington
Exit from Meadow Lane and Butterbache Road is via Woodlands Road. Marshals will help you to cross safely onto Chester Road heading south, and follow the diversion along Gorse Way to exit the village.
The route is renowned for being fast and largely flat – more than 70% of our runners achieve PBs!
