Anyone doing this ?

I thought about it as part of the Tour of Merseyside thing, but I'm at an AGM that day in the midlands

yep i'm in looks like a super quick track so going to give it a blast

Defo looks like a PB course.

potters arf on Sunday as a warm up to this looking forward to it but its quite an early start 8.30 seems a bit odd.

8.30am start to minimise the disruption caused by road closure. Early start is no bad thing as the wind often gets up mid-morning and should not be too warm if nice weather persists. Pancake flat pb course

This will be the first Southport Half Marathon since 1999 - link above to winners of previous Southport races

I work in the area and the route they're using appears to be the same one I do most of my long runs on....flat as a pancake

Anyone got the race pack yet ?

They sent them out yesterday according to the site.

provisional weather forecast is bright + sunny with 2mph wind - fingers crossed this forecast is right as it is usually blowing in gale in Southport
