so we know that road closures are costly. this half marathon is shutting the motorway so you can run on it

now thats a first

Looks like only a part of the HM is on the motorway. Think I would find it quite boring to run 13.1 miles on a motorway.

but the views are lovely.unless its windy.cycled over the bridge many times...if there is a north wind its scary

I think the views look stunning 

Be even better if they ran it at dusk like in the pic.

I agree seren! Looks like a lovely view and I meant it as a compliment that only the start is on the motorway.

Glasgow Half uses the M8 over Kingston Bridge IIRC

so closing a motorway isn't new..............it won't be perfectly flat as there is a fair gradient over the bridge

 - Not possible, the road is closed...

There have been many theories, my favourite being that the girl is focussing a telephoto lens in an unpromising zone.

KK - Possibility for a club trip, although I suspect that the entry fee may be rather high.  Perhaps review when they open for entries?

Another possible trip is to the Truro Half marathon, I did it last year and it's a good course, well marshalled and one the club could do very well at.
