Excitement is building for what promises to be a great day of sport in Sheffield on Sunday 24 September.
The day starts with the Asda Foundation’s 10k race, with more than 4,000 runners taking part, followed by the city’s first football derby in five years.
Thousands of people are expected to attend and Sheffield City Council is advising them to plan ahead and allow extra time for journeys.
The 10k race, which returns to Sheffield for its second year, will start at 9.30am on Arundel Gate.
Runners will race along Ecclesall Road and around the edges of Endcliffe Park, before continuing along Riverdale Road, down Brocco Bank and back onto Ecclesall Road for the finish at Arundel Gate.
The race is expected to finish around 11.30am and there will be some local road closures. Signs are already up advising drivers.
Football fans travelling to Hillsborough for the 1.15pm kick off between Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United, are advised that some roads may still be closed when travelling to the match.
Extra trams will be running to Hillsborough and fans are advised to allow extra time to travel and take public transport where possible.
Councillor Mary Lea, Cabinet Minister for Culture, Parks and Leisure at Sheffield City Council, said:
“The council has been working closely with the police and travel operators to ensure that anyone who needs to get around can do so with minimum disruption.
“We are experienced in managing major events - who can forget the magic of the Tour de France and Special Olympics – and I look forward to welcoming runners, spectators and football fans to the city.
“I hope everyone has a chance to enjoy a great day of sport.”
