In short: good race need water at end and recovery drink t shirt needs to be bigger xl not xl In full: this was 2nd time I have run the marathon. the support was exceptional shouts of name great. course good but different from last year not rarely sure improved from last year. not enough toilets at start.
disappointed by fact that no water at first water station and very loppy at start. toilets at mile 16 blocked and unsuable. At the end a bit unorganised. I was not given any water and non of the surrounding food providers had any water. the marathon overall is a great marathon but finishing t shirt is not an xl this needs addressing Date of review: April 7, 2014

In short: good half marathon on flat route, too suuny for a PB on this occasion, atmosphere at start and finish excellant , In full: first time to run a half marathon in Southport, good flat route with many twists and turns. plenty of water available at regular distances well marshalled through out. Found water station at mile 12 appreciated as gave me the final push on such a hot day. Will run again if on next year. A banana at the end would be great and maybe a tee shirt.

In short: excellant race in cold february, well organised friendly event, unique tee shirt great for personal best In full: I came across this event by chance, whilst looking for 10k as training for Manchester marathon. web site was excellent and very easy to navigate. The event was well organised and friendly event. Although weather poor raining did not spoil the event. achieved a PB on flat fast course. There were problems with parking because of council only providing one parking attendant. The finishing tee shirt is great and I have seen many runners wearing around Liverpool and in a variety of events I have run since including the Manchester marathon. Would recommend this event to anyone and will hopefully be able to run next year if I am lucky enough to get a place. Date of review: June 24, 2013

In short: good race , well organised, unique opportunity to run mersey tunnel and 1 third of race under water, teeshirt and medal great . In full: I ran the race for the first time this year, enjoyed running the tunnel part to compare with the marathon route last year. atmosphere brilliant and support good along the route. Very warm weather but not at the detriment of the race. The start could be improved by starting pens as slower runners did cause problems for the first few k but still managed to run personal best by over 3 minutes. I had no problems at the finish, tee shirt great and medal. Will be there next year. Date of review: June 20, 2013
