Various roads in one part of Hereford will be closed tomorrow (Sunday), due to a charity event taking place.

On Sunday 19th September, St Michael’s Hospice will be holding RUN Hereford, an annual event comprising of Half Marathon, 10K and 5K.

Each year, 1,200 runners and their supporters help make this one of the Hospice’s biggest fundraisers, contributing around £60,000 towards the Hospice’s care costs.

The start and finish has moved to the Livestock Market on Roman Road (A4103). To make this day as safe and enjoyable for everyone taking part, St Michael’s Hospice have arranged road closures throughout the morning and early afternoon along the following routes:

•    Stretton Sugwas roundabout (A480 and A4103) to the Roman Road junction with Tillington Road (opposite Ned Potter Ltd) from 9.30am to 2.00pm.

•    Tillington Road between the Roman Road (A4103) and the crossroads near Burghill Valley golf course between 10am and 11am.

•    Crowmoor Lane (near Burghill Valley Golf Club)  – all directions 10.00am to 2.00pm.

A map is included.

Diversions will be in place, with marshals on hand to answer any queries and allow access to and from homes and businesses when deemed safe to do so.

Please be aware that the 5K event, featuring 300 runners of all ages, will take place on the Roman Road between the Stretton Sugwas roundabout and the Tillington turning. This means there will be a strict road closure in place with no access between 10.00am and 11.20am.

Every year, runners tell the Hospice how much they appreciate the support from spectators along the route, and they know they would appreciate your backing again this year.

St Michael’s Hospice say that they are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you for your support and understanding.
