Sending mine and Keith entries on Monday. Payday Tuesday. As usual skint in January.. Looking forward to it. Really enjoyed it last year. Definitely spoiling us with technical t's. Just hope they are not tangerine. Coming from Preston hate anything tangerine/orange coloured!!

I remember doing this the other year and it is not easy we ran though a park that was abit hilly but had a good time

I entered last, doing it with a few mates and going round town for a few drinks afterwards as its my birthday that day.

I managed to walk the dog for about 3 miles today without any pain in my knee, maybe need to increase my mileage a bit to set a new pb for the half!

Elvis - you've got seven weeks so I wish you a speedy recovery! Entries are going well and we're on our way to 6,000 having just cleared the 5,000 mark. we should be at least on a par with last year at 7,500 and hopefully should be nearer 8,000 by race date!!

Should have the Tunnel 10K entries open online this week as well as the new Men Only 10K on the morning of the Women's 10K (May 6th). Will be interesting to see what the response is like to that one!!

Really looking forward to the Liverpool half marathon now,I just hope Alan turns the wind machine off this year, I was on for a pb until we hit the prom in the last race.

i clocked 79:13 at the 4 villages half last week so if i can stay ninjury free and we get a still day i`ll be targetting a low 78 mins.

Jakesy - I believe young Atkins was disqualified from Helsby. Too young!!

Good to see it's on a different date to Chester this year will try to do both

Oh this is the half, just noticed I thought it was the full.

Does anyone know if there will be organized pace groups (i.e. 7,8, etc minute miles) as there was in 2011?

Jonathan Barnard 3....
I have done this event the last two years on the trot (and doing it this year) and they normaly have 'Pacers' holding the min mile you want lolipop sticks in the air for you to see.

We are in. Got the email confirmation today. Thanks Alan.

There won't be any Pacer Groups in the race this year. RW were invited but declined I'm afraid.
Perhaps if we took out advertising with them...?

Numbers are fast approaching 6,000 so we may well close entries on 26th February. Would be good to reach the 8,000 limit. Considerably bigger than Wilmslow and Chester HMs so well done to everyone taking part.

It's reassuring to know we can get access to the Pier Head for 2013 so that will make the event even more attractive and we will probably look at staging for entertainment on the day then as space will allow for this.

Someone asked me about seating at the finish (this year) and the seats will be there (as last year) so spectators will get a grandstand view.

JC - good to see you're in!

Entered. looking forward to it. Done this in 2009 and 2010 and the full last year. Always good events and a tech t-shirt this year! Quality. Be a good indication of how london marathon is going to go

Really looking forward to this race, having pulled a hamstring with only two miles to go last year I am hopeful of running sub 1:30 this time round
03/02/2012 at 22:25
your not alone mate. my last three half's have been 1:30:04, 1:30.50 and 1:31.23 need to break 1:30. my best Liverpool half is 1:34 tho.

Alan or anyone else - any free car parking round there or in the area as looking to book a hotel for the Sunday night & set off early on the Monday.

Free parking in a city centre?? No. Some of the smaller hotels have their own parking but no sure which ones have free parking. Some do.
