Our focus is to deliver a fun, safe and enjoyable event which causes the minimal amount of disruption in the local area.

As the course is mainly on tracks and cycle-ways, there is a minimal amount of disruption to residents and businesses.  Our team leaders and marshals will be operating a vehicle gate or allow traffic through when there are sufficient gaps between the runners but this is closely controlled for the maximum safety of the runners and marshals involved.

A resident and business notice will be delivered to those effected on the course around 2-3 weeks before the event.

We want to hear from you

We are looking for volunteer race crew members to help with event marshalling all across the route and in the Race Village on race day. For further details click here.

River path access

A temporary river path closure has been authorised between 9:30-12:15 on race day to improve the experience and safety for the runners along this section.  The order order has been authorised through Derby City Council.  This means that the runners will have exclusive use of the river path during the race.

Roads affected on the Route

The first part of the race goes on roads around the Pride Park area.  There will be some road closures for the protection of the runners, volunteers and spectators and these are as follows:

  • Royal Way: 9:45-10:15
  • Derwent Parade from Island 2 to Island 3: 9:45-10:15
  • Pride Parkway from Island 3 to Island 4 (eastbound closure): 9:45-10:15
  • Pride Parkway from Island 4 to the junction of Pacific Way (southbound closure): 9:45-10:20

A temporary traffic order has been authorised through Derby City Council.

A controlled narrowing of the B5010 eastbound between the A6 Thulston Island and the left turning for the grassed south avenue of Elvaston Castle Country Park will be in force for the duration of the event.

A one-way traffic light controlled system will be in place on the B5010 northbound for approximately 80 metres after Harrington Villas as the road leads towards the River Derwent bridge.
