We are working closely with Crawley Borough Council and West Sussex County Council to bring this popular new mass participation running event to Crawley, helping to get people active and healthy, boosting local tourism and supporting many local charities.

How Run Gatwick affects residents

Safety is our number one priority, and to ensure our runners and spectators are safe during the event, we will be closing some local roads for a brief time on race day which may affect you in some way. The approved route comes up from Crawley along the A23 London Road to Lowfield Heath, proceeding along the airport perimeter Charlwood Road to Charlwood village before proceeding back along Ifield Road towards Rusper and Ifield direction back into Crawley Town Centre.

What this means for you

We want to make sure there is as little inconvenience for local residents and businesses as possible. Most of the affected roads will be closed for varying times between 8:00am and 1:00pm on Sunday 13th May.  Please refer to the enclosed map, and the table below to see which roads will be closed, and for how long.

If you need to get out on race day

Please try to plan your journey in advance, as early as possible to avoid getting caught in the road closures.  You may need to leave a little earlier or later, or perhaps park your car on a nearby road that isn’t closed.   If you need help, please contact us by email:

Not running but want to be involved?  We need volunteers!

We hope you will join us in embracing and celebrating this exciting new community event. If you would like to help us as a volunteer, we’d love to hear from you and would warmly welcome your support – You can find more information and sign up at

If you have any specific needs or questions, please get in touch with us:
