Road Closures

Chester Zoo 10k – Sunday 6th February 2022

The race has a start time of 09:00am and an expected race finish time of 11:00am (detailed timings of race stages are included on the next page). We are expecting there to be around 2000 runners participating in the event this year.

In light of this event, there will be traffic management procedures in place on the morning of Sunday 6th February. These procedures have been designed to offer minimal disruption and will be managed by an expert Traffic Management company that will reopen roads as soon as possible and provide appropriate diversions during disrupted times between 09:00am and 11:00am. The race has been designed as a single lap course so that roads can be reopened as the last runners pass by (please see map on next page for details of the race route).

If you will be expecting home-carers to visit your household on the morning of Sunday 6th February then please get in contact with us by emailing [email protected] so we are able to create access contingency plans for you.

RunThrough Events have previous experience of organising mass-participation races such as the iconic Hampton Court Palace Half Marathon which help to raise vast amounts for various charities. We would be happy to support local charities by offering charitable entry places for the race, for more information please contact [email protected]
