10K and FunRun Course Detail 2023

10k course map

The 2023 route reverts to follow Frederick Street (as in 2019) there are still some Town centre improvement works underway but we have checked and can safely use that route.The Traffic Management plan seeks to provide access where it can safely do so, (in Canklow and the areas around Middle Lane south to have vehicle access and egress) and we have also had to liaise with the construction for the installation of the cycle lanes in Broom Road. Checks will take place the week before the event date, to ensure the race can safely pass through the construction works.
