Run To The Beat Returns

August 18, 2009 by  

The Council has given the official green light for the charity half marathon, Run To The Beat, to return to Greenwich. The 13 mile run, which attracted criticism last year, will take place on September 27th.

Councillor Maureen O’Mara, Cabinet member for Neighbourhood Services, said, “This event stands to raise thousands for charity as well as giving opportunities for runners and local musicians. However there were a number of real concerns expressed by residents over last year’s events and the council has therefore set clear requirements on the organisers to ensure that traffic restrictions don’t impose undue difficulties on local residents, and that noise levels are kept to a minimum.".

There will be a series of phased road closures throughout the day. Find out if you're likely to be affected by checking the Road Closures Map.

    Can you please tell me if Charlton Road will be closed for this event thus preventing us from holding our Sunday morning services ?

    will there be any compensation ?

    it would seem that Charlton road will be closed – as for the London Marathon – thus preventing us from holding our Sunday morning services.

    we were not consulted about this either last year or this

    I will be driving home from Victoria to Charlton after working a 12 hr night shift. The only map that seems to be available is a very colourful child like scribble, with no readable print of any road names. I am concerned that I shall be prevented from reaching my home for most of the day.
