Road Closures

Road closure signage

The date

The RB Hull Marathon begins from West Park at 9am, Sunday 24 September 2017. The Fitmums & Friends' Fun Run starts at 9:30am.
Please make a note of this date, consider your plans for the day and if the Marathon will affect them or not.

Following consultation with the local authorities, the route will be run on mostly closed roads. There will be crossing points at eight locations of the event in the later stages, but please be aware of reduced access to some areas and a need to take alternative routes.

Things can change

Please check the website for any changes before the day and be patient with the race teams on the ground, most of them are volunteers from clubs and organisations who have volunteered their time to assist the runners and help you if they can. They may not know the answers to all of your questions but will do their best.

Plan your journey

In order to ensure your travel plans are not affected, we recommend using our interactive Google Map. Consider, where possible, making your journey at a time outside the event hours and parking off the route if you need access to your vehicle during the event. Be aware some bus services will be affected so check with Stagecoach and EYMS for details of revised timetables/stopping points.

Be proud of your City

This is the 3rd year the RB Hull Marathon has been running, and this year we are the only UK City of Culture with a marathon. The event will see many runners raising funds for charities and bring new people to the city who contribute to the economy. We encourage you to embrace the day, get out onto the streets and support the runners. Whilst there may be disruption to your normal Sunday life, it is one day a year and really something you can be proud of.

Thank you

We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused and thank you for supporting the RB Hull Marathon 2017.
