I don't normally post on weekends but for those interested in capturing buses on diversions etc then this may of use…

The Great West Run takes place in Exeter tomorrow with a special shuttle service running as well as some major diversions in place for the morning;

1. Shuttle buses MUST have been pre-booked via website. - deadline has now passed.

2. No on the day purchase for buses will be possible

3. Shuttle bus wrist bands will be posted out within race pack or separately if a later purchase.

4. Wristband MUST be worn and shown to driver for travel.

5. Buses will leave from Exeter Central Bus Station.

6. Buses will run between 7am & 7.45am – please take stress out of travel and arrive as close to 7am as possible to ensure you are not delayed.

7. It is simply not possible for us to delay busses for late arrivals.

8. Outbound buses will drop runners off at Pinhoe Road/Whipton Village Road Junction and then participants should make short walk to Exeter Arena (we are unable to get double decker buses any closer).

9. Return buses will be available from top of Summer Lane (Beacon Lane Direction) from 11.30am. Earlier buses will follow diversion due route road closures, once roads are reopened buses will follow direct route back to Central Bus Station.
