Wilmslow Summer 10k 2022 - Residents Leaflet

 

June 2022

Dear Resident,

This year’s Wilmslow Summer 10K takes place on Sunday 10th July 2022 starting outside Sainsburys at 9.15am. We are expecting up to 2000 participants who will run the route from Wilmslow town centre, down Knutsford Road, following a loop to finish on Mobberley Road, Morley Green.

According to our records your home/business is either directly on the route or on an adjoining road and so we write to inform you of a rolling short-term road closure on the morning of the event. The safety of participants and residents is our absolute priority and for this reason the whole 10K route is run on fully closed roads.

 

TRAFFIC INFORMATION

We have a legal road closure permitted by Cheshire East Council from 8am until 12 noon however, we will endeavour to close each road for as short a period of time as possible to minimise disruption. As the last runner passes through each section of the course, we will re-open the road behind with approximate timings as follows –

B5086 Alderley Road (from the traffic lights at Barclays to the Kings Arms roundabout). Residents can access until 9am

8:00am

10:15am

B5086 Knutsford Road (from Kings Arms roundabout to Brook Street corner)

8:45am

09:45am

B5085 Knutsford Rd Brook Street Corner to Warford Lane

9:00am

10:30am

B5085 Knutsford Rd Warford Lane to Newton Hall Lane

9:00am

10:45am

Newton Hall Lane

9:00am

11:00am

Burleyhurst Lane - Mobberley Road to Morley Green Road

9:00am

11:15am

Mobberley Road to Altrincham Road and Sandy Lane

8:00am

12:00pm

 

We will position around 100 marshals onto the route for the safety of runners and residents. No vehicles (excluding a blue light emergency) will be permitted to enter or leave the route during the closure – we hope you understand that we need to ensure the runners are safe and away from vehicles. If a vehicle drives through the legal road closure, this will result in us having to report the incident to the police, as it is compromising the safety of both themselves and the event participants/marshals.  If you need to leave your house by vehicle during this time duration, might we suggest moving your vehicle before the road closures are in place.

This event brings a boost to the town with a large increase in trade for many of our town’s retailers and we hope you can have some patience as we appreciate that not being able to leave your home by motor vehicle even for a short period is an inconvenience. Thank you very much for your patience with us, we greatly appreciate it. If you live on the route, you are very welcome to come out and cheer on the runners.
