In short: Great Camerarderie with runners and crowd! needed in horrible conditions. In full: The issues of the day were exacerbated by the weather. The event was well staged with the training runs prior. I really enjoyed the crowd and the course would have been much more enjoyable had the weather been better. Great PB took 44 Mins of my previous (in a hurry to get home out of the cold) Date of review: May 16, 2012
In short: Very welcoming event despite the traffic, all got off well and enjoyed good weather and a friendly atmosphere. In full: My first official event and despite the race pack not coming Yvonne managed this efficiently despite the queue of people who had forgotten various elements of kit? Having fought through the traffic and got organised in time to start the race comfortably, warmed and stretched the first couple of miles disappeared in a breath. The remaining miles were a little more difficult but not too tiresome until the run back along the waterfront into a headwind. I had planned to save some energy for a quick finish but used this running into the wind. The crowd really did help, the encouragement all around the course was excellent and a real driver to keep you going, Thank you to the people of Liverpool from a grateful Mancunian!
