EVENT INFO



The Great Northern Running event, is set in Mickleover, Derby with the race HQ at Mickleover Sports Club on Station Road.  This year the race is bigger than ever with over 550 children and adults taking part in the 10k, half marathon and fun run. 

As runner safety is paramount, we have applied for, and been granted temporary road closures to allow runners to progress safely onto Station Road at the start of each race. These road closures have been approved by the council and local police.

Road Closure Arrangements

09:29 – 09:40 

Traffic moving along Station Road to Radbourne Lane temporarily halted at the junction with the railway path to allow half marathon runners out onto the main road.

Traffic moving out of Spinneybrook Way halted at the junction with Station Road.

Traffic moving along Radbourne Lane halted just before the junction of Station Road.

09:59 – 10:05 

Traffic moving along Station Road to Radbourne Lane temporarily halted at the junction with Spinneybrook Way.

Traffic moving within the Spinneybrook estate will be halted at the mini roundabout.

Traffic moving along Radbourne Lane halted just before the junction of Station Road.

We will have marshals, wearing hi vis vests, at each junction who will be halting traffic for the temporary period.

We will endeavour to get the road back open again as soon as safely possible and we would like to thank local residents and the surrounding Mickleover community for their patience and understanding in this matter.

If you would like to get involved in the event, fun run entries are still open online and can be entered on the day. If you would like to spend a couple of hours with us volunteering, don’t hesitate to get in touch on info@huubevents.com.

UKA licence Number: 2018-32008

From 1 April 2016 a new rule regarding the wearing of head phones in road races was introduced by UKA.

“The wearing of headphones, or similar devices, (other than those medically prescribed), is not permitted in races on any single carriageway road that is not wholly closed to traffic. This restriction does not apply to races held on dual carriageways provided that there are clear, structured separations between the separate carriageways. “

For the GNR 10k and Half Marathon 2018 the wearing of headphones is not permitted and anyone found to be wearing them will be disqualified from the race.  We have taken this decision as the race is run on country lanes which are open to other vehicles and is purely a health and safety decision based on the rule outlined above.
