Arrangements for the 2020 race are largely unchanged from previous years.

For further information or specific enquiries about race weekend travel arrangements please get in touch.

Unless otherwise stated all restrictions apply only to Sunday 15th March 2020.

 

  • Scheduled Bus Services

    There will be a number of changes and diversions to normal scheduled bus services on race day.  Full details of the amended services will be published closer to the event date on the Travelwest website.

    To view the bus route map please look here.

  • Footpath Closures

    In recent years we have had to implement footpath closures at narrower sections of the course where runners spill onto the pavement, and to avoid crowd congestion in streets adjacent to the start and finish in Great Pulteney Street.  Details of these closures are included on the respective residents leaflets below.

    We will again be introducing a temporary footpath closure on Halfpenny footbridge and the adjacent section of footpath on Claverton Street from 10.45 to 11.30hrs approx to allow safe passage for the massed runners at the beginning of the race, following the narrowing of the carriageway at this point by the recent highways alterations.

  • Course Route Road Closures and Parking Suspensions

    Road closures and parking suspensions will be introduced on the course route:

    Road closures – 09.45 to 16.00hrs

    By order of Bath & North East Somerset Council the road closures will apply to all vehicles, except blue light emergency services and authorised event contractors. To ensure the safety of competitors and staff, no other exemptions can be permitted during the closure period. Closure points will be staffed by event volunteers and contractors, supported by Avon & Somerset Police. Breach of an authorised road closure is an offence and will be prosecuted

    Diversion routes around the closures will be signposted to the north and south of the city. During the closures the only access point into the city centre will be via the ‘Bus Gate’ (which will be suspended) and Cleveland Bridge will be the only river crossing remaining open

    Residents in ‘landlocked’ streets needing to use their cars are advised to park outside the restricted area and walk to their property

    Parking suspensions – 06.00 to 16.00hrs

    Parking suspensions (or ‘No Waiting’ restrictions) will apply to all vehicles, including disabled parking.  Effected vehicles will be removed by Bath & North East Somerset Council’s contractor and released on payment of a £70 penalty charge notice and £105 towaway charge.  Phone 01225 448025 for vehicle collection

     

  • Access Routes Parking Suspensions

    Parking suspensions will also be introduced on designated access routes for diverted buses and emergency services in Widcombe Parade, Oldfield Park (Junction Road, Lower Oldfield Park, Oldfield Road, Second Avenue & Upper Oldfield Road), Old Newbridge Hill, North Road, Cleveland Walk, Walcot Street, and Lansdown Road (adjacent to Julian Road)

    Traffic restrictions and parking suspensions on Kingsmead Square will not be required this year

  • Advance Warning and Diversion Routes

    Advance warning signs will be erected on all effected streets and parking bays for 4 weeks before the event. Leaflets will also be delivered to all residential and business properties along the course route, venue streets and access routes.
