Dont close the streets for Run to the Beat .
This petition made change with 96 supporters!
On 8 September 2013 Greenwich will host the Run to the Beat half marathon once again. Despite residents' concerns, the organisers plan to, yet again, encircle an area encompassing Woolwich, Charlton, Blackheath and Greenwich..
The impact of the event for residents cut off by Run to the Beat’s route is
• No bus services for the day (in an area of only 40% car ownership)
• No ability to use cars
• Completely cutting off the local Queen Elizabeth Hospital (remember, there's proposals to downgrade Lewisham A&E and merge its maternity services with QEH)
• No consultation with residents - at all
• No community benefit - at all
You can see the route here: http://www.runtothebeat.co.uk/Event
There are many other options for Run The Beat. They include a straight run, or finishing with a few laps of the Greenwich Park, which won't cut off thousands of homes and wreck public transport for a day.
