Really enjoyed my time in blackpool this year. Great race.

Bus transfers to and from start/finish.

That’s strange, the entry form asks for cheques to be made out to SRH Running Promotions. Isn’t that your illustrious organisation Ron?
Nice to hear from you again!
Thank you for bringing to my attention about the cheque's made payable to!
Have asked for that form to be taken off web site's until I have spoken to Ron & Rosemere
I expect the form to altered to the correct account.
Hi again RocketRon,
I haven't heard anything back from that email address you gave me. I don't suppose you have the name and phone number of the person I need to speak to about getting a refund by any chance please? It really would be much appreciated.
Race Office (2010) not received an email from you, try again email@example.com. Send full name and current address.
Thanks for replying to me twice about this. Unfortunately, again I haven't heard anything back from this email address, I copied and pasted it directly from your post above, so I don''t know how I might have got it wrong. Is there another email address or phone number I could try pleaase?
More poor organisation by the look of it, e-mails addresses that don't respond.
I made several posts on the previous Blackpool marathon thread, that thread like all the others to do with srh races got removed, as the organiser can't take any form of criticism so demands all threads be removed if anyone says anything negative about their race experience.
So here are some of the points i raised that got removed.
I did some of these srh races a couple of years ago and wasn't impressed with many aspects of the organisation, as highlighted fairly and intelligently by Barnsley Runner and others.
However I gave them another go for this years marathon but was still disappointed.
My main issues -
Massive queues for no where near enough toilets, even at 8am. People still queueing at 9am when it started as they just couldn't get to a loo before this.
No PA system or proper announcer or music. Couldn't hear a thing the announcer was saying.
No atmosphere and no support from locals/spectators.
Not enough marshals. A couple of places it wasn't obvious where to go as there were little paths leading off. I understand some had been cordened off, but the chord removed.So these places needed a marshal, as people will always mess with stuff like that in a place like Blackpool.
Poor quality medal and t-shirt. Fine for a cheap 10k, but not an expensive marathon. £22 not cheap for what you get. No goody bag either. Just a tiny bottle of water at the end.Just not good enough from a professional money making business. (Sorry Mcandrew, don't swallow the line you pay over five grand of your own money to put on these races.) I know races cost a lot to put on, but you make a tidy profit and you know it.
Go away Anne you sad sorry person, why keep knocking events you have never done and spoil it for the thousands that enjoy them. Still, retired now bought my new Fararri from the thousands made on events??? Life goes on with a new manager of Fylde Coast events I am only glad that I can till help in small ways no more so than raise funds for great causes, not moaning old soles like you. Long live the sport of running and the good guys, down with the knockers, your going nowwhere, end of debate
