Thousands of runners will head to Nottingham on Sunday May 15th for the first Asda Foundation Nottingham 10K.

It is hoped the latest addition to the city’s sporting calendar will raise tens of thousands of pounds for local good causes.

The race organisers, Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All, are now advising runners, spectators, residents and visitors that a number of the city’s roads will be closed or have access restricted to ensure the safety of all those taking part.

The run, which gets underway at 9.30am, starts and finishes in Long Row near Old Market Square and takes in a number of city centre roads including Long Row, Friar Lane, Huntingdon Drive, Peveril Drive, Waterway Street West, Queen’s Road, Meadows Way and London Road, all of which are subject to closure for part of the day.

During the closure of Queen’s Road – from Arkwright Street to Summer Leys Lane – access to the railway station car park will be maintained via London Road.

Among the other roads affected are Castle Boulevard, Castle Gate, Carlton Street, Lenton Road, Sheriffs Way and Victoria Embankment.

The bulk of the closures start at 8.30am. Routes will open on a rolling timetable as soon as it is safe to do so.

Charlie Tatman, Run For All’s Event Director, said: “We work very hard to minimise any disruption and all roads are re-opened as soon as possible.

Unfortunately, a certain amount of disruption is inevitable but we’d like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.”
