We value spectators at this event  but for this year, we’re asking that any spectators who want to attend head to parts of the route rather than attending the start and finish areas as they can get congested. We need to ensure that the race area is a reasonably safe environment  for everyone participating, working and volunteering. If you’re attending as a spectator, then we suggest that you also take a lateral flow test within 24 hours prior to the race start.
