Aldi Ashby 20 – Sunday 19th March 2017 – Roads Closed


The Aldi “Ashby 20“, a 20-mile road running race, will be held on Sunday 19th March 2017, starting at 10am.  About 1,500 runners will take part, and there are road closures for safety, for a likely maximum period from about 8am to about 3pm.

Runners come from Ashby, go down Mill Street, then do two anti-clockwise laps of the roughly-circular course shown on the map below.  The anti-clockwise left side of all roads of the circle are CLOSED during the race. Roads are open in the opposite clockwise direction.  In Heather village, traffic may flow alternately in both directions using Stop / Go boards. At the Bull & Lion on their second lap runners turn up High Street, Packington and on to their finish at Ashby. There is a full schedule of Road Closure details in the table below the map:
