Wherever possible roads have been closed, sections are on a disused railway track, and traffic has been limited on certain sections of the route. Please do not deviate from the designated route for any reason. This is not only a risk to you but to motorists that may still be using part of the roadway.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, minor adjustments may be made to the route. They will be well signposted and stewards will direct you. In the event of a major incident being declared this race may be stopped or cancelled without warning.

Please note : Due to the route being amended to avoid the flooded section under the Eccleshall Road Bridge the junctions of Holmcroft Road and North Avenue with the Stone Road will be closed and traffic management will be in operation on Rowley Street. The northbound section of the Stone Road from the Eccleshall Road roundabout will be for resident access only; two-way traffic will not be affected and operate as normal along the full length of the A5013 Eccleshall Road to and from Junction 14 of the M6 Motorway.
