​Information for non-race road users and residents on the route


We aim to keep delays as short as possible but there will be some disruption around the race route on race day. We have changed the date so the race does not clash with the Macclesfield Treacle Market for this reason.


To ensure the safety of the runners, Birtles Road and part of Whirley Road will be closed during the race

For details of the closed section and the signed diversion routes click here.

We employ a professional traffic management company and have the traffic and safety plans agreed by Cheshire East Council. The roads on most of the race route are open but there will be some temporary traffic lights and speed restrictions while the race is on.


The area near the Leisure Centre and Priory Lane will be particularly busy between 9:30 and 11:00.
