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.

Thanks for the link Seren, might think about doing that

GNR Starts on Newcastle's Central Motorway I think?

Glasgow Half uses the M8 over Kingston Bridge IIRC

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

Strangely tempting - thanks for sharing!

Do you feel a club road trip coming on?


 - Not possible, the road is closed...

40 minutes, I've never really looked at your avatar before, what is going on there??

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?

looks really good, quite unique!

Aaargh something is unique or it isn't. Not a bit unique, slightly unique.... In the way that you can't be slightly pregnant.

No wait, the worm and the hole was probably the reason for pregnancy.

Great pic. Pretty close to me too. I have time off work in August, may give this a look.

It is a quiet motorway though that gets closed frequently but as to how much it costs goodness only knows!  The "one hill" is quite a killer though but it looks like a nice route (I run in this area normally).
