I wanted to do this race last year, but never got round to it unfortunately, but this one is definately a 'to do race' this year for me.
Any previous runners recomend this race?
Living on the Wirral myself (wallasey) i'm looking forward to running through the tunnel, and hopefully the weather is nice for a good finish in New Brighton.
Bloody loved it Jay!
Highlight was the firemen at about 7k with their hoses out.....
Hi I got into running purely so that i could do this event, at the moment I am comfortably running 5k's should I build up to the 10K, or should i throw caution to the wind and just run it
This is one of the best in my opinion. How many races are there with a course including a tunnel like this, it must be unique? Great atmoshere in the pack inside the tunnel as well. The climb out of the tunnel is not too grim either although there's a short sharp rise as you turn left just after coming out of the tunnel. Lovely run along the river, then after the race it's free Merseyrail travel back to Liverpool for a couple of pints.
I felt sorry for anybody who WASN'T a runner on the train back......
It smelled! But we didn't care!
hehe well i live in wallasey so i'll be staying on that side of the water when i finish.
Though i can imagine the train smelling pretty ripe on the way back
It was a bit choice, yeah, but everybody was chatting and the camaraderie was brilliant!
And it was raining in Liverpool and not in New Brighton!
I'm just getting back into running at the moment, but i'll probably start adding a kilometer a week and build up that way. I'm really starting to look forward to this now, me and a couple of other lads set this as our new years resolution so should be good
This may be a stupid question; but are you allowed to run with an iPod? cos I use that Nike+ and i find it helps me not run like a bat out of hell for the first mile or so. Not sure if it will mess with the tag timer.
People do, but you'll lose a lot of the atmosphere if you've got phones in your lugholes. I hate them in races, especially 5/10k's but that's a personal preference.
You'll run the first mile quickly anyway - it's into the tunnel and downhill!
Chubby, you'll have no trouble trying to motivate yourself while running in the 10k.
It has been known to rain on the wirral, there was a brief drizzle this morning
It was as dark as hell in Liverpool at noon. I had the car lights on!
Back in Warrington and the sun is shining!
Explain yourself Master Chub!
*puffs up chest*
Oh know I've been on here a day and I'm making enemies!!
I'm from the Wirral so we're used to getting it in the neck!
Please accept my aplogies
Chub where about in the wirral?
I'm located in Wallasey
