Road closure information for Coventry Half Marathon that takes place on Sunday

Coventry Editorial 27th Feb, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

AS RUNNERS prepare to take to the start line of the Coventry Half Marathon, road users are being warned of closures.

For a limited time on Sunday, roads across the city will be closed to allow 4,750 runners to take on the 13.1 challenge to raise money for local and national charities.

Where possible, diversions will be in place to reduce disruption and ensure continued access around the city for motorists and public transport.

Once closures are in place, no vehicles will be permitted onto the race route, other than at designated crossing points.

Road closures will be in place from 6am and will begin re-opening from 9.45am once runners have passed by and it is safe to do so.

The majority of roads will be fully re-opened by 1.30pm.
