We are delighted to say that after a massive effort and countless meetings raising concerns with the council and safety advisory group, who have been more than helpful in securing a fantastic route for runners, there is only one section of live road which is 107m long. For this part of the route there will be a number of marshals and Traffic Management vehicles/staff in place to ensure your safety. The rest of the race, including the 5k, will have full closures as we had asked for in the first instance. We hope you’re happy with the new route as we certainly are (a few voiced concerns over the old route for its difficulty). We have worked excessively hard to bring this to you and are pleased it will pass through Sandhoe and Corbridge. Team Hexham Half.
