The Severn Bridge 10k 2024 - Sunday 25th August
There are some FUNDAMENTAL changes to the race this year, and it is important that you read this pre-amble in its entirety, before entering.
Since the initial race in 2014, we have had several challenges to overcome.
One year we had re-route the half marathon course into Wales, rather than England, with only a couple of months notice. This involved fast-tracking some road closures.
Another year, we had 10 days notice to change the venue from Wales to England, and organise a time trial format.
More recently, it looked like an on-the-day cancellation was inevitable, when the Traffic Management crew hadn’t obliged at the correct time.
This year, we’ve had a double whammy, first having our closure window restricted to a time that made a half marathon not viable. Then, a directive that made a road closure impossible.
So, this year, the M48 carriageway will not be closed. There will not be a half marathon. However, we will organise a 10K on the walkway/pavement, across the bridge.
We have never failed to provide a race, but now we need your support to make this year’s event happen. We have seen many organisers fail to overcome lesser hurdles than those detailed.
