Road closures

Road closures and car parking suspension will be in place for the event. Car parking will be suspended on Royal Avenue from 7pm on Saturday and all day Sunday so it will be clear and safe for the event route. Marlborough Road and Royal Avenue will also be closed to traffic during the event. Please see advance warning signs around the park and diversions on the day.

The majority of the route is on tarmac roads and pathways. However, there is a reasonably steep short hill section on Cow Lane next to the allotments and a gentle incline around Royal Victoria Park so wheelchair users may require assistance.

Disabled/ accessibility parking available in Charlotte Street Car Park, Bath. 

There is no allocated drop of point for the event but we suggest Weston Road side of Royal Victoria Park to avoid the event road closures.
