MORE than 1,000 runners will hit the streets this weekend.

The Dewsbury 10K takes place on Sunday morning from the town’s ring road outside Highgate Beds.

Before and during the race there will be some road closures and race organiser Bernard Disken said drivers should expect disruption on Bradford Road between Dewsbury Ring Road and the Birstall Smihies traffic lights.

Dewsbury Ring Road will also be closed eastbound between Bradford Road and Leeds Road, and northbound from Webster Hill to Halifax Road, from 7am.

The Cliffe Street slip road from the ring road to Crackenedge Lane will also be closed, as will the full lengths of Wood Street and Greaves Road in Dewsbury.

All roads will reopen after the race.
