A RECORD number of runners is expected to take to the streets of Stubbington on Sunday for the annual 10k road race.
The event, which is organised by Stubbington Green Runners, attracts around 1,400 runners and starts at 10am.
It is expected to cause major traffic disruption in Stubbington and Titchfield on the morning of the race.
Stubbington’s main square will be sealed off from 8.30am until about 1pm. The B3334 Titchfield Road will be shut between 9.30am and 10.30am from the Red Lion roundabout in Stubbington along a two-mile stretch to the Titchfield gyratory on the A27.
Bridge Street, Coach Hill, Posbrook Lane, Triangle Lane, Meon Road, Meon Foreshore, Cliff Road and Stubbington Lane North will be closed during the morning.
Gary Littlecott, race director, said: ‘We’ve got a very good relationship with local residents who are warned in advance of the disruption.
‘We’re very grateful once again for the tolerance and patience of residents and motorists on the day.’
