Road closures announced as Letchworth gets set for Standalone 10k road race
Plans are all in place for this year’s Standalone 10k road race in Letchworth, with more than 1,600 runners set to take part – and associated road closures have now been announced.
On the day of the race – Sunday, October 2 – there will be closures along Wilbury Road, Norton Road, Cashio Lane, Croft Lane and Stotfold Road, starting in Wilbury Road at 8.30am.
The other closures will come into force when the race starts at 9.30am, with a diversion route put in place for motorists.
“This is an extremely popular event, which has grown over the years to be a significant community event for Letchworth and North Herts,” said race director Richard Harbon.
“We ask for permission for the road closures to ensure all the runners get round the course as safely as possible.

“I ask all drivers to be patient and plan their journeys to take into consideration potential delays. I will ensure these delays are for as short a time as possible.”
The closures will end as soon as the race passes – the only one to remain will be at the western end of Wilbury Road, near Standalone Farm, to allow safe access for emergency vehicles.
