Being a local, most of the events I've ran have been btr/run liverpool events. Each and every one has been very well run and the half marathon last week was excellent. It seems clear to me that LCC are being greedy and forced Alan to drop the 2013 event. Perhaps btr isn't perceived to be fashionable enough. Whatever the reason, btr have been treated disgracefully and for that reason I won't be running in this event.
