Dear all - please be advised that I have had to cancelled the Liverpool Marathon this year. Any disppointment you may feel doesn't come close to my own after two years planning and two years delivery. Looking at an alternative Half Marathon and 10K race on the Wirral side instead on the scheduled day (13th October).
The use of Liverpool roads is proving just too difficult.
Thanks to everyone that made it such a great race.
Facebook and Twitter seems busy!!!!!!!
That's sad news, glad I did it last year now though...really great event.
2 laps on the Wirral side ?
That's rubbish Alan - sorry to hear all your hard work looks to be going down the pan.
I found out yesterday I didn't have in place in the RideLondon 100 so was only looking at the BTRL website last night for entry information for the Liverpool Marathon.
I've supported family running it in the past couple of years - very disappointed I can't follow in their tracks.
Oh no, that is gutting for you Alan. So sorry. What a shame for the CIty too.
Shame on Liverpool Council.
Is the half safe?
None of the other events are affected, just the marathon.
Err Liverpool is a GREAT city Nick.
that's why I moved away to Chester...
I have no idea of the ins and outs of the reasons why Alan is struggling but I will say Liverpool Council been hit hard by government cuts. Not saying this is reason why marathon is affected but won't help.
Alan, I am hoping you can work something out for 2014, as my home marathon, it was one I was wanting to do next year and I met you at Manchester marathon expo last year and you were very passionate about it. So gutted for you.
DF3 - the American lady is coming over for the HALF MARATHON. The decision to cancel is about restricted road use in the city centre, not finance. The City Council does not support the event financially. Come to think of it doesn't 'support' the event..
Rotten news Alan, massive disappointment for all concerned.
Email issued to major of Liverpool commenting on my dissapointment. Surely they must see the benefit of the 1000's of additional visitors over 1 weekend?
