How to Get There
Plymouth train station is about a 25 minute walk away from the event, and the bus station is about a 15 minute walk away. Alternatively, do consider a carpool in a taxi with friends.
Please note the following road closures will be in effect for the event (timings will be updated nearer the event):
Hoe Road, Madeira Road
One-way sections: Hoegate Street; Lambhay Hill, Elliot Street until Junction of Citadel Road; Citadel Road for short stretch; Leigham Ter; Leigham Street; Cliff Road; W. Hoe Road; Great Western Road; Grand Parade
The Plymouth 5k route starts and finishes on the picturesque Hoe promenade, adjacent to Smeaton’s Tower, and provides fantastic views of the sea and a great atmosphere. The course is all on paved paths and follows closed roads around the Hoe and pathways in Hoe Gardens, so please do expect some inclines and some uneven surfaces.
This course is all solely on Tarmac and a wide route. There is no differentiation in the terrain. The event site is also on hardstanding, with the staged area on Grass next to the lighthouse which may become boggy and uneven in poor weather condtions. However due to some steep inclines on the route, assistance may be required for wheelchair users.
