The Run to the Beat half marathon takes place today and begins and ends at The O2, on Greenwich Peninsula.

Up to 16,000 runners take part in the run which winds through the borough, passing two 2012 venues at Royal Artillery Barracks, Woolwich, and Greenwich Park.

The race start time is 9.45am, but remember the clocks have gone back last night. The start area and competitor facilities will be open from 7.30am. The O2 will open to the general public from 8am.

Roads and transport

Some bus routes will be diverted, and roads along the route will be closed for a period of time. There will also be some parking restrictions in place.

The road closures and restrictions have been carefully planned so that all roads in the borough will be accessible - even if it means taking a detour.

The closures are arranged into different 'zones':

  • Zone A - 8.30am-3.30pm - Greenwich Peninsula, North Greenwich, Greenwich Millennium Village
  • Zone B - 8.15am-12.30pm - New Charlton, Residents north of Woolwich Road, Woolwich Church Street
  • Zone C - 8.30am-12.30pm - Royal Woolwich Arsenal, Woolwich Town Centre
  • Zone D - 9am-12.30pm - Woolwich, Woolwich Dockyard, Charlton
  • Zone E - 9am-2pm - Charlton, Westcombe Park
  • Zone F - 9am-2.15pm - Westcombe Park, Maze Hill, Greenwich Town Centre
  • Zone G - 9.30am-3pm - Residents north of Trafalgar Road and Woolwich Road

If you live in or near to one of the affected zones, please follow this link to read the full list for residents of which roads are closed and which will remain open on the day.

All roads are scheduled to be open by 3.30pm and many will open earlier.
