In short: nice flat course, a bit congested at the start , but not for long,great goody bag. In full: Friendly good marshalling, good to see the faster runners running the opposite way, just sorry we might have got in the way when they lapped us, Overall a very enjoyable run.

In short: hugo boss aftershave In full: only one bad point - the start was a bit congested. I've done the sefton corporate cup in the same park and don't remember it being that bad.
Good points - marshalls and organisation, towel instead of a t-shirt, hugo boss aftershave in the goody bag, doing a PB, lapping the mexicans and seeing how fast the real runners go when I was not just lapped but eclipsed by them on my lap 2. The biggest highlight of the day was my mate getting foundation in his bag not aftershave. Date of review: October 26, 2006
In short: Well organised relly enjoyed the race In full: Well attended, good marshalling. Being a beginner went to the back of the queue so there was no problem getting to the starting line as everybody had already gone through. Date of review: October 25, 2006
In short: Good day out worth ther trip In full: Well organised event pity not more variety but very friendly race , great goody bag and the towel was a great idea instead of a cheap t shirt to throw away at the start line of my next race well done Date of review: October 23, 2006
In short: A quick three laps round a park In full: I was disapointed that it wasn't beside the seaside - would be fantastic to actually run along the seafront especially as we were so close!
The course was quite narrow, made for a slow start, although it all spread out nicely later on.
The goody bag was fantastic, got to be one of the best I've ever had. Love the towel! Though the make up was a bit random - we tried the foundation on the drive home and it was a very strange colour. Well worth the drive out though, and Southport was seemingly in the middle of pumpkin country, visited an ace farm shop on the way home which seemed like a bonus for leaving the city :-) Definately would do this one again.
