In short: You did Southport proud guys ! In full: Well done to all concerned, especially liked the "howling" at the beginning and the starting record "Who let the dogs out" set me off with a smile on my face. Hope to see you all next year x Cathy Date of review: February 7, 2011
In short: Excellent event for all abilities In full: Despite a headwind from the beach in the first 5K, this flat route was good under foot, very well marshalled with a decent water station between 5 and 6K. Chip timed and very professional and friendly with good onsite facilities. An amazing goody bag, medal, teeshirt and welcome awaited everyone at the end. I really appreciated all the encouragement from the marshalls who shouted runners on and gave them approx distance to go. Lovely race will definitely recommend it to friends.

In short: Killer headwind but great sense of achievement at the end In full: First 5k into extraordinary headwind. Felt like crying - still, made the second half feel like a breeze! Didn't help that it was just along a flat unchanging landscape - was convinced that the pier just kept moving further away! Still - all of that can't be helped.
Adrian went to real trouble to fit us in at the very last minute and we were really grateful.
The marshalls were fab - especially having to stand there in that weather - they must have been freezing. The organisation and value for money were exceptional.
No PB this time, but definate potential. We'll be back to do it again.
In short: Great organisation, great race, awful wind! In full: i really enjoyed this race. The organisation of car parking, the use of the school facilites were excellent. I found the marshalls were encouraging along the course. Fantastic race for an inaugural event. Date of review: February 7, 2011
In short: fast & more importantly flat! In full: Excellent organisation, superb facilities, massage at end a real treat. Wind horrendous but still managed a PB, could have done few minutes faster without the 40mph headwind so the PB potential is definitley there for everyone. Course nice and flat. Would definitley do again - well done to the organisers!!!! Date of review: February 7, 2011
In short: scenic, fast, super-friendly and amazingly well-organised. In full: The route was scenic and interesting all the way round, with plenty of marshals (who - contrary to an earlier review - I found to be very friendly and encouraging!). Amazingly well organised and a great goody bag. Date of review: February 7, 2011
In short: Loved running along side the beech! Ok yes a lot of wind, but it helped cool me down. Orgainisers and Marshalls should be very proud of their efforts! Roll on next year! Date of review: February 7, 2011
