Thanks Cougie, yes collect on the day. But they said they'd advise the numbers on an email in mid-May and I haven't had anything apart from confirmation of payment from UK Forms. I've sent emails to the address on the website ( but with no reply.

Oh I got the email to confirm my number.

Mine came through about 6th May from Alvys Entwistle.

Perhaps your email is in your spam folder ?

Good morning athletes,

A fine day for running here on the beautiful Fylde Coast.

It's going to be a briliant atmosphere with a record 850 entries. Get here early to get a good parking place

Collect your number before 1.15. Don't forget your email confirmation, that will mean we can find you on the list quickly.

If you have lost/deleted/irnored your email then you will have to bring prof of payment, eg bank or credit card statement please.

If off to Southport to commentate on a triathlon then I'm going to cycle round the course with the first lady so she gets the same recognition aas the leading man (or vice versa if the race leader is a lady)

See you later. Come and say Hello.

Fantastic event. Always feels so friendly - and very funny commentary. I will be back for the 50th. Good to see Mick and Phil racing too.

i saw casualties yesterday  - lets just hope their all ok

good run for us - just slow thats all, but i am recovering from an op - though we did run 5 mile races last Tuesday and Wednesday evenings - so, i'm sure that was in my legs

The afternoon start is the big drawback of this race.

That said, I shall be there next year for the big one!

Freckleton was my first half marathon and I must say that it was a fantastic day.  I took my wife, kids and mother and they enjoyed the hospitality whilst we were suffering around the course.  Yes, it was hot on the day and I noticed a few being treated on the roadside (hope everyone is fine).  I enjoyed being part of the crowd and the local support was fantastic.  A big thankyou to the team on the day. I thing I'll give it a bash next year too!

Had a great time, as always at this one. Its my favourite local race.

Does anyone know what happened to the guy who got taken away in an ambulance. I heard a rumour he was hit by a car ?

20/06/2013 at 13:05
Heat and dehidration, but was let home later on in the day after being pumped with fluids.
20/06/2013 at 16:01

Ah i thought the , car rumour was a bit odd! As i saw him being treated on pavement on my way home.

It was a very warm day, so thank you to all the folks who got there with water and sponges, i even heard extra ones had been set up. I passed 4 and my friend who finished half an hour after me, said he passed 6. I guess thats one of the thngs that make freckleton special.

Hope he is ok, was it you Alan or someone you know ?
