Great race! Well organised and a super fast course.

Broke my pb by over 5 mins, I think the weather was kind to us today, a bit windy but it could have been far worse.

Looking forward to seeing the results and photos.

Yep super event, thoroughly enjoyed it.  Wind was stiff but not punishing.  Going south felt positively balmy at times.

PB and sub 1.30 for me, absolutely what I was after.  Chunky ass medal, really good freebies (gloves!) and loads of water.  It's very difficult to expect any more than that.  Cheers Blackpool, you were great hosts

slowest half ever for me but then I have only run the distance once (October) since a knee operation in 2010. All said; happy to have made it round in under 2hr. As usual fantastic organisation and brilliant fellow runners - i'll be better prepared next year!!!

Big hello to the Sandwell Valley guys - well done

I was pacing the 90 minute group and really enjoyed it. Thanks to everyone I was running with for a great race. Will definitely be back next year to race it as that course could be seriously quick on the right day.

HH thanks for pacing us today. I ran with you the whole way and got a 4 minute PB. Couldn't have done it without you as my pacing is normally very erratic! Didnt envy you carrying that back pack and flag in the wind!

PB here also, by 3 minutes and very unexpected. Very fast course and pretty damn good weather conditions.

A good day all round and a very well organised race.

Just to echo everybody else....fantastic event, really well organised, great goodies (loving the magic gloves!) and we were blessed with good weather.  Superb race for me and a massive PB.  Thank you, Fylde Coast Running, looking forward to one of your 10ks in a few weeks' time.

Massive thanks to the pacer Matt, apologies for talling non stop but had some really useful advice from him. Used it as a MP run and it worked great. Fab organisation, the hotel made everyone welcome, weather as good as it could have been and excellent fellow runners!

Thanks again
