Run to the Mersey Beat! 18.03.12.
There's a fine example of why the start needs to be a little more ordered.
In the results there is a runner, with a chip time of 03:20:00 and a gun time of 03:20:18.
Well done to Alan and all the volunteers again for making this another great race. Really enjoyed the route and well pleased with my time of 1:55. My only gripe would be the start - far to many runners packed together trying to get over the start line, but otherwise a great day.
Please don't take these observations as criticism - I had a great time and would definitely do it again.
You did a tremendous job and should be more than happy.
Plus - Princes Park, Sefton Park, Otterspool Park and the River Front, dull? Nope
Alan - I forgot to say, Mrs O used the text system and was very impressed with it. Really quick results.
Another great initiative.
My first time running this event and only my third half, was aiming to better my 1:58 from Helsby and managed a 1:49 so well pleased with that.
Little bit chaotic at the start, but did get there late and had to fight the spectators a bit to get round to the starting pen, but my own fault really.
Perfect weather, so pleased there was no headwind for the last few miles along the front, I was finished at 11 miles but knew I could get under the 1:50 so plodded on. Sat in the grandstand watching everyone come in for about an hour, some great efforts ther.
Didn't miss a goody bag, all I want at the end is a medal/t-shirt & water.
Great day, be back next year.
Loved the race ... course was great and conditions could not have been better, and really please to run under 1:40 for the first time.
Marshalling and crowds were great. This IS a PB course!
As per comments above, the start could have been organised a little better, but then Helsby is the same!
Great effort. Thanks Run Liverpool!
Had a great run, loved it. I ran it last year for my first ever Half marathon, now looking forward to next year. I loved the Tee, I feel the same about so called goody bags (no need)
I would however like to purchase another tee if Poss.
Thanks for all your hard work.
This was my first half marathon and I absolutley loved it. I thought it was a great course and the weather couldn't have been better. The crowds at the end were fantastic and really helped give me that extra push!
Finished the course in 1 hour and 42 minutes which I was extremley pleased with!
I agree, didn't need a goody bag I was happy with my T-Shirt and Medal!!
Looking forward to the Festival of Running next xx
Barrie, My Garmin measured 13.16mile instead of 13.11. When I did Helsby in Jan it measured 13.08. I think a lot depends on whether you take the inside lane around corners, etc... Certainly if it was longer than 13.11mile, it was only marginally so.
Forget to say earlier, but amazing t-shirt. So much better than the cotton one we got when running the marathon in October. I thought, given the quality of t-shirt, I think it was good value for money!
