There will be a number of road closures necessary for this year's Perkins Great Eastern Run.
To ensure the race goes as smoothly as possible the council will be closing several roads on the 13.1 mile route.
The following roads will be closed between 9.30am and 10.45am:
- Bourges Boulevard (southbound) from the Queensgate roundabout
- Cathedral Square
- Long Causeway
In general, all other roads along the route will be closed from 9.30am until 2pm. However, as the last runner passes each mile point, that road junction will reopen.
