Road closures: Williams BMW Rochdale Half Marathon, 10K and Fun Run

Date published: 13 September 2017

The annual Williams BMW Half Marathon will take place on Sunday 8th October 2017.

This year’s event is organised by Rochdale Harriers AC, Middleton Harriers AC and Rochdale Triathlon Club and supported by Rochdale Council. We hope that you will support your local clubs in helping to make this a great event. 

The race will cause some disruption to the highway network as there will be road closures in place to ensure the safety of the runners.  The following roads will be affected (either fully or partially) on the day of the race. There will be statutory notices on these roads to inform you of the closure details.

Canal Street (Littleborough), Hollingworth Road, Lake Bank (Hollingworth Lake)

The closures affecting Hollingworth Lake will be from approximately 10am – 12noon. If you will need to exit any of the closed areas by car on the day of the race it is recommended that you make alternative arrangements in advance as it will not be possible to drive onto the closed roads outlined above. Plans will be put in place for access by the emergency services.
