EVENT AND TRAFFIC CHANGES NOTICE
16th Annual Winery Running Festival - Wandin Estate
Half Road Closure westbound- Talga Rd - 6.30am - 12.30pm – Sun 16 July 2023
Road and traffic changes during the event
This event will start and finish on the Wandin Estate cricket oval (or surrounds) with parking and access to the property via Wilderness Rd. However, to create a suitable length and weatherproof running course we will be using the southern, (west bound lane) of Talga Rd for runners to run west and then return east, remaining on this side, split by large traffic cones on the centre line. This means Talga Rd westbound lane will be closed from Wandin Estate Driveway until No 497 Talga Rd, to traffic from 6.30am to 12.30pm. This will be done by an experienced Traffic Control company. The eastbound lane will remain open with a reduced speed limit of 40km. Residents on the northern side of Talga Rd can exit on the east bound lane. Residents on the southern side of Talga Rd will need to request a traffic control concierge to assist them cross the runners' lane. Of course, emergency access will always be available during the event.
NOTE: For south side residents who need to leave between 7.00am and 10.30am please contact our traffic company on 0455 051 075. You will need to cross a lane of runners, and we require this to be done safely. The traffic controller will attend your property promptly to manage your exit. We will have 2 escorts on call.
There are 4 separate start times for different distance events. Runners will run approx. 1km before they enter Talga Rd and will be spread out:
1.6.30am - Marathon (42.2km, 4 X 10.5km loops)
2.7.30am - Half Marathon (21km, 2 X 10,5km laps) – approx. 350 runners
3.9.30am – 10.5km – approx. 350 runners
4.10.30am – 5km – approx. 200 runners
