Bury Running Festival, 20th November 2022, road closures and parking suspensions

Dear All

Please be aware that the Bury Running Festival takes place on the morning of Sunday 20th November.  This year the route has moved from south of the town centre to the north, on roads through Elton, Walshaw, Tottington and Greenmount and the Kirklees Trail (The Lines).

Thousands of pounds are raised for good causes, and we are delighted that Greenmount is firmly on the sporting map as Bury shows itself off to hundreds of visitors on the day of the festival.
