SEVERN BRIDGE 5 NIGHT RACES
SEVERN BRIDGE 5 NIGHT RACE - Friday 9/11/18.
Update at 1pm.
We have liaised with the relevant authorities and they have given us the distinct impression that a FULL bridge closure is unlikely.
Therefore, we fully anticipate the race starting at 7-30pm.
It is possible, but unlikely, that we may choose to shorten the course and have an ‘out and back’ route of approx 2.25 miles. Be assured, this 2.25ml route will more than give you value for money! You will of course get a medal, water, tea and sticky buns. You will have earned it!
After 1pm we will be unable to respond to any queries on FB or via email, for obvious reasons.

Traveling to the race HQ
Access couldn't be simpler. The event HQ is very close to Junction 2 of the M48. You just need to drive to the post code provided or if you know it, the Homebase in Bulwark (Chepstow) and then follow our signs to the car parks and event centre.
You'll need to pick up your number from the main hall. We will have glow in the dark face-paints available should you wish to use them. At around 6:50pm you need to make your way to the start (it will be signed). After the run, return to the hall where we will have inclusive cakes and hot drinks available... or if you wish the bar will be open too.
An officially measured 5 mile route on the Severn Bridge at night. You can't get lost and the route is lit throughout.
We start on the downstream pedestrian access-way, run the full length of the bridge then cross over the toll booth plaza bridge to gain the upstream side. We run down a footpath at the side of the Aust Services and gain the upstream pedestrian access-way which we follow all the way back to the other side with a convenient finish in the underpass.
