Went and signed up for this in the shop today , I also got the wife to enter the Santa Dash at the same time . This is my favourite race and I am really looking forward to it. And yes Alan I did reimburse the wife the entry fees !

Just to advise that there will not be any Goody Bags next year. Bananas, bars and drinks will be handed out at the finish. Goody Bags have become cost prohibitive I'm afraid. THEY AE NOT FREE! As far as T shirts go there will be a separate collecting point away from the finish line where you can go and have your number marked upon collection. It's not really possible to manage tear off sections when you have in excess of 6,000 finishers. It just slows everything down.

There will be FOUR colection points relative to sizes. The new online entry system allows us to accurately asse size requests.

Numbers coming in well already and on approximately 1,800 which is good considering we are still in November.

(I think the marathon entries are opening nex weekend, everyone should recive an email in advance)

Medal still Alan?

(good idea regarding t-shirts)

Yes, just the Goody Bags are going.

Fantastic then Alan.

I personly cant see a reason for any one to grumble. 

 All i want when crossing the line is a drink, some sort of food and to get my t-shirt and medal and you cover all of them

Medal or T-Shirt I'm not fussy

Usually when I finish a half I'm wanting to know were the nearest Burger King is

Signed up a couple of weeks ago , this will be my 3rd liverpool half . To me this is the best race of the year just hope i can get a PB as this years run never went to plan . Is there a cap on the number of entries or are we going to hit the 10,000 this time ?

I think Alan mentioned a limit of 8000 for the half on the 'Marathon 2012' thread, and that there had been 2000 entries already!!!  I'm glad I'm already in for 2012.

We closed entries at 7,500 last year and I need to organise all event material (medals, T shirts and so on ) in advance. 8,000 is the limit so we are well on our way at just over 2,000.

Hi All

Signed up for this last night.

I haven't run for years but had a rush of blood last April and applied for VLM. Needless to say, I was rejected . Decided to do Paris instead.

As part of my prep, I was advised on the Paris forum to do a few 'competitive' races (I don't compete, I take part  ) so I signed up for the Blackpool Half in Feb and then spotted this one. Couldn't miss this one, could I?

Looking forward to it, just hope Otterspool is kind to us.

Nice one Orbutt. I signed up for this after a rush of blood (and alcohol) to the head last year, and I'm still running, so these 'rushes' aren''t necessarily a bad thing?

Otterspool was fine this year, although the year before was a 3 mile run into head wind by all accounts.

After taking part in '06, '08 and 2010, I'll be entering once again. Not sure why I end up running this HM in even years but there you go.

Have a new job in Albert Dock so I popped into the shop the other day but you'd already gone home Alan, so I'll try again in January.  Wondering if I can run the Wilmslow one the week after as well as this one? 

Can I request a number as well, Alan?

Just entered this race and looking forward to it. Where is the best place to park if not local and driving down on the day ??

Cheers

how are entries going still not entered waiting till payday as xmas skint me

Mcattack - about half full at the moment so no great panic but fully expect to have all 8,000 entries go by race day. Closing date for postal entries is 26th February.

One 20Four - anywhere in the city centre will be close to the start and finish and details of car parking arrangements on site will be in the race instructions.

I'm taking part in the Stafford half the week after also, thinking about a PB in Liverpool and recovery at Stafford
