Does this course have PB potential?

Alan.I thought you have a lot of links with Liverpool.   so i am confused by your post..are you involved with this race 

28/10/2013 at 09:56

The half marathon has been going for 22 years now and yes Iam involved with race.

Alan, I think if you want to advertise your race you should go through the proper channels and not try to do it for free by spamming the forum.

sounds like your better placed than many to answer your own question then??

so why start a thread asking if its a PB ......looks like you were pretending to be a normal punter.......looks like you were trying to decieve us


if you are going to go for free advertising at least be open and honest with us and not try and treat us like fools

All Alan's been very upfront before about being the race bloke thinking it's just assuming everyone would already know it, He's quite well know up north through run liverpool.

If any good I've done this race the last 4 years and it's a good one will almost definantly be doing it again next year. Partly to meet friend's from around those parts and partly because enjoy the race. It's slightly undulating in places but the local's support the race a lot and it's got a good medal.  Worth the trip if anyone is fancing it.

I'm not pretending to be a punter at all. I'm asking a valid question if those that take part think the course has PB potential. Quite a few people go on these forums and moan about Race Directors not enagaing with runners but I do. I always have and will continue to do so.

Happy to stay off the forum and you can talk amongst yourselves.

If you weren't protending to be a punter why not mention you were the race director......I'm sure you got enough feedback from all the runners over the years to know if it is a PB course or not.... you must know the courser back to front.....

If you wanted feedback read the feedback or post a question here asking for feedback..

I wasn't pretending to be a punter. If I was I wouldn't have put mey real name. The course has changed last year with a new start and finish but given that you didn't know Liverpool had a half marathon you wouldn't know that. Hence the prompt.

 Seren carm down Alan comes on here all the time to talk to runner's to help inprove the course and the other races in and around liverpool and has for years been a very good egg. Don't believe there has been any intent to spam.

It is a good race and its well placed as preparation for London. Race Liverpool and it will show you what shape you're in for London.

It's not the fastest course - but it's not the slowest either.

Thank you Cake / Coughie.

what date is it out of interest? Looking for a well timed half for VLM and might be a nice change as always seem to do the same ones. Oh and what time does it get going as with a 90 min drive that would have to be a consideration!

I assumed it would be, however there is a big difference in a 9am start and a 10.30 start. I wont do hotels, cannot sleep in them so would just be awake all night!!

28/10/2013 at 16:57

DT19 - it's a 9.00am start. Might be a bit early for you?

28/10/2013 at 17:23

yeah, think that would be, particularly as I dont know Liverpool in terms of getting to right area etc.

Looking forward to this one- it'll be my first half marathon, definitely attracted by the course route. Even though I'm only based in Manchester I'll most likely stay in a hotel (Not that I sleep much before a race day!)

It's a PB half marathon course for me.  Took 7 minutes off in 2011 and another 3 minutes in 2012

Tempted to have another crack in 2014.
