Palmer group assistance
When the event is in operation and the roads closed as per the times stated above, we will have the availability to allow public transport access / egress through section of the road closure up until 15 minutes prior to the commencement of the race at 10am.  At this point we will be required to commence a full closure with no access until such time as the event has passed and then sections of the roads detailed will be open immediately to allow normal traffic flows.
Please click here for a colour coded plan of the route (Shotley Parish Clerk has asked for a better plan).  (Blue is the runner’s route / Red shows the road closures / Green is the vehicle diversion route.)  This may be subject to changes nearer to the event.
The route map of the Great East Race is also attached here.
