Mark - Last year there was a free travel arrangment on the Liverpool "tube" which was a great idea for the runners - probarbly a bit smelly for any othe rpoor sods but hey ho !! They could either park in the City centre or my preference would be for them to be in New Brighton at the finnish - very nice place and lots to do as so many finnish lines are boring for spectators until they see their loved ones. I'm sure Alan will offer you some advise on this one being a local lad. I have about a 2 hour travel time to Liverpool so dont know it too well.

What a brilliant day to run today - not used to actually getting hot when running outside - only 2 weeks ago I was so cold my hands were frozen solid for hours after I returned from a 10 miler and now the sun is shining and the paths are full or runners and ..... Dogs .... Ahhh !!!

Went out to do 5 miles as I have a half next weekned and am tapering a little but ended up doing 8.5  miles - it was too nice I had to keep on going - plus I was following some nice young ladies - it always helps

Good decission Connor - you won't tegret it.

Mark - the start is in Pall Mall, city centre and the finish is in New Brighton. If your pick up doesn't know the area you may have trouble getting to the finish as you have to go through the tunnel by car!! You get free transportation back to the start courtesy of Mersey Rail.

Alan how are entries for this going? I'll be applying next month come pay day. Dont want to miss out, people applying for this in bulk because they missed out on the half marathon.

I would actually do things in reverse and leave the car at the finish and get the train through to the start, no faffing around at the end waiting for trains etc

I concur, plenty of free parking spaces in New Brighton.

Just an alert on entries given the oversubscription for the Half Marathon. Entries will be limited to 3,000 and the closing date for entries (online or postal) will be Monday, 17th May OR BEFORE if the limit is reached.

We DON"T have an actual limit but we have to buy in medals, t shirts, water etc in advance so I'm sticking at 3,000 maximum. Currently on around the 800 mark.

Good luck to everyone running over the weekend - the weather ain't great here and I've got my first half in Ironbridge on Sunday ! Typical Brittish weather - still putting that aside I can't wait for tomorrow.

Mark - good choice to get off the cancer sticks - apparantly they are going up to £7 a pack soon !!

Just think what else thta money could go towards - ......

Evening everyone, ran my first half of 2010 this morning in Ironbridge / Telford - great race and got a PB ! Given the rain yesterday which turned most of the route into mud I hadn't really banked on a PB so I am very happy. Time 2hrs 20 mins which beat my previous time by 2 mins.

Not up to some of yours standards but I am a 16 stone fella and it was a very hilly route. Mile 7 to 11 was a serious incline and I have a lot of me to get up thise hills !!

Got home and my 2 lovely daughters and the misses had baked a chocolate cake for me - how sweet (I cried a bit !) Well when youre exhausted your emotions are all over the place  

Anyone else been out over the weekend ?

I did 10 miles this morning round the Wirral Peninsula, baking hot sun. I've got sun burn on my face.

Well done Shrek good running

Thanks Jay

Yout run sounds nice - we are land locked here so no sea but we do have the River Severn which is nice - something about seeing the sea - It's the start of Summer for me.
