road closure costs


so we know that road closures are costly. this half marathon is shutting the motorway so you can run on itimage

now thats a first 



  • Looks like only a part of the HM is on the motorway. Think I would find it quite boring to run 13.1 miles on a motorway.
  • but the views are lovely.unless its windy.cycled over the bridge many times...if there is a north wind its scary image


  • I think the views look stunning image

    Be even better if they ran it at dusk like in the pic.

  • I agree seren! Looks like a lovely view and I meant it as a compliment that only the start is on the motorway.
  • Thanks for the link Seren, might think about doing that image

  • GNR Starts on Newcastle's Central Motorway I think?


  • Glasgow Half uses the M8 over Kingston Bridge IIRC

  • so closing a motorway isn't won't be perfectly flat as there is a fair gradient over the bridge

  • Strangely tempting - thanks for sharing!

    Do you feel a club road trip coming on?


     - Not possible, the road is closed...


  • 40 minutes, I've never really looked at your avatar before, what is going on there??

    There have been many theories, my favourite being that the girl is focussing a telephoto lens in an unpromising zone.

  • KK - Possibility for a club trip, although I suspect that the entry fee may be rather high.  Perhaps review when they open for entries?


  • looks really good, quite unique!

    Aaargh something is unique or it isn't. Not a bit unique, slightly unique.... In the way that you can't be slightly pregnant.

    No wait, the worm and the hole was probably the reason for pregnancy.


  • Great pic. Pretty close to me too. I have time off work in August, may give this a look. 

  • costs are up £26 for affliliated.........just released its the same weekend as our club relay event ..

    bank holidays are usually busy ......

  • It is a quiet motorway though that gets closed frequently but as to how much it costs goodness only knows!  The "one hill" is quite a killer though but it looks like a nice route (I run in this area normally).

  • Depends which way they run it. It'd be more money one way than the other.

  • I've run across the bridge a few times (on the path). A nice easy run with great views.


  • You pays to get in, its now't to get out.

    Might have a bash myself
