Part of Grove Road on Portland will be closed this Sunday, August 11 for the start of the Round the Rock 10k Running Race.

The road will be temporarily closed for seven minutes from 10.28am.

A spokesman for Dorset Council said: “Due to the short duration of the road closure, there will be no signed alternative route for traffic on this occasion, marshals will be stationed at each end of the closure to ensure only those taking part in the race have access.”
