This year’s Mic Morris Torfaen 10k, held on Sunday 16 September in aid of the Mic Morris Trust, will take place on a fully closed-road route.
The race begins in Blaenavon at 9am and follows along Cwmavon Road until it diverts off via Old Road/Limekiln Road, continuing along a closed road route to the finish line in Pontypool Park.
Roads will be closed from 8am until 11:30am but will be reopened earlier if it possible and safe to do so.
The route has been chosen to ensure that traffic can still move freely between Blaenavon and Pontypool without clashing with runners. Side roads will not be formally closed but no vehicles will be allowed to access the route during the race.
The main roads that will be closed along the race route are:
• A4043 Cwmavon Road from the junction of Prince Street and New William Street in Blaenavon to Old Road in Abersychan
• Old Road
• Limekiln Road
• Freeholdland Road
• George Street
• Mill Road
• Hospital Road
• The northern section of Osbourne Road to its junction with Riverside
• Park Road leading up to Penygarn Road
Anyone who whose travel or caring responsibilities will be affected by the closures should contact Torfaen’s sports development team on 01633 628936.
