Road and travel guidance as the Great Aberdeen returns

Road and travel guidance as the Great Aberdeen returns

Thousands of people will visit the heart of Aberdeen on Sunday 26 August to celebrate the return of the Simplyhealth Great Aberdeen Run to the city.

As the city gears up for a full programme of activities, including the 10k, half marathon and family run, the run routes will see Aberdeen transformed, turning the city centre, Old Aberdeen, Seaton Park, Bridge of Don and beach areas into a running circuit for participants.

On the day, road closures will be in place to ensure safe delivery of the event and there will be a number of parking restrictions around the route. A full list of these can be found on https://www.aberdeencity.gov.uk/services/leisure-culture-and-parks/services/leisure-culture-and-parks/great-aberdeen-run/great-aberdeen-run-getting-around-aberdeen

Businesses and residents along the route have received letters and guidance advising them of these restrictions in a bid to minimise the impact of the event.

Aberdeen City Council’s Transport spokesperson Councillor Ross Grant said; “We are delighted to welcome the Simplyhealth Great Aberdeen Run back to the city, however, we want to ensure any impact on Sunday 26 August is kept to a minimum and that those on the route have the necessary information to plan for the day.

“We advise anyone who needs to travel around Aberdeen on 26 August to check travel routes prior to setting out and plan your journey in advance.”

Alongside the road closures there are closures to a number of city centre parks in the city centre. These are available in full at: https://www.aberdeencity.gov.uk/services/leisure-culture-and-parks/services/leisure-culture-and-parks/great-aberdeen-run/great-aberdeen-run-getting-around-aberdeen
