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.
1:30:04 that must of been a killer, Liverpool is a fast course but I think because I know the course well I can picture all the tough bits in my head so it actually makes it harder, but plenty of people run pb's at Liverpool so im determined to go under 1:30 this year

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.
The camponile which is not too far from the start/finish has its own car park

There will be an email blast going out next week to remind everyone about the closing date for entries which will be February 28th. If you haven't entered then get your skates on.

Another excellent turn out that will at least match the 7,500 entries last year.

Signed up last year, the Liverpool Half is my favourite race ! Training is going alright with a 10 mile run planned for the morning.
Anyone who has not yet entered , sign up now or you will miss out on a great run !

To disqualfy young Jack is mad he is a star in the making,i wouldn't mind finishing 10 mins behind him must be in the genes.You want to try training with him

Hello all, This threads very quiet considering it's only 4 weeks to the race !

Does anyone know if there is a route profile knocking about anywhere ? Just wanted to check where the hills are !

I'm not sure if this will work, or be much help but

Nice one Xabi!

Doesn't look too bad to my uneducated eyes. Just the one "hill" at 3 miles, is that Parliment Street?

The incline is just about 1.5 miles in and is approximately 300 yards long. This thread has been quiet for a while. Numbers approaching 7,000 just now and entries will close on 28th.
i think at this rate we will have more than 7,500 which was the entry count last year.

I think everyone has drifted of to Facebook...

 Only two weeks to go!!!! Hope the weather keeps like this. Sun out. Makes you feel better. Def looking forward to the 18th.

Online and postal entries will close on WEDNESDAY, 29th FEBRUARY and IF numbers are still available after that date then entries will be taken in person only at the event office in North John Street. I think most of you know where we are.

NO ENTRIES ON THE DAY I'M AFRAID.

Can't wait for this one, and my number arrived today ! whoo hoo .

Anyone know when the race packs are getting sent out? Was meant to be a month before the event but not heard anything yet.

Really looking forward to this now & only 3 weeks to go. Started running last March so couldn't even run 13 meters this time last year let alone 13 miles.

Just signed up! I ran both the half and full marathon last year so looking forward to a return to Liverpool.

I'd been debating whether to run it or not as my spring goal is the Greater Manchester Marathon at the end of April, but this will now be part of the build up to get me into race mode

You haven't! But you're right - we do all hang on the Runliverpool group thread.

Good going Steve!

LB - the new web site which will be launched on 18th March will have regular input from the events via Twitter and Facebook. Does this mean the demise of RW Forum????
