Trams To Operate As Normal For Robin Hood Marathon
20 September 2017
Nottingham’s tram network will be running a full service this Sunday (24 September) when the Ikano Bank Robin Hood Marathon and Half Marathon takes place.
This year’s marathon route does not cross the tram network at any point, meaning that NET will operate a normal Sunday timetable with services running from every 10 minutes.
Those taking part in the run can claim discount return travel to the race village by purchasing NET’s specially priced £2 Event Ticket.
The tickets are available to purchase from all tram stop ticket machines and runners must ensure that they have their race number with them and are able to present it, along with their tram ticket, should they be asked by travel officers.
The tram’s Meadows Embankment stop is on the doorstep of the race village at the Victoria Embankment Recreation Ground and customers wishing to use the network’s free park & ride facilities are advised to park at Clifton South which is just a short tram ride away.
Stephanie Moss-Pearce, Marketing Manager at NET, explained: “We’re delighted to confirm that we will be running a full service during the marathon this year and providing a great way for runners to travel to and from the race.
“Spectators looking to cheer on friends and family can also take advantage of discount tram travel with our £5 Group Ticket which is available all day at weekends. It offers all day unlimited tram travel for one or two adults and up to three kids.”
