The P&R is not affected by road closures during the race and our stewards will remain on site throughout the event.
ALTERNATIVE PARKING – limited car parking at Grove School is accessed off Great Hales Street and NOT the main gate. Please be mindful that this is likely to fill up early in the morning.
There are also a few public car parks available in town, all of which are signposted and within a reasonable walking distance of Grove School.
We encourage runners and supporters to arrive in plenty of time to prevent unnecessary congestion in the town where there will be planned road closures and increased traffic due to MD10k.

Did the race in 2019
Great event well organised, well supported and of course the weather was spot on. My advice would be to get hill training into your routine to cope with the finish.
