Vital Events are bringing the Half Marathon distance back to Southport with an entirely traffic free route that will see competitors Start and Finish in Princes Park take in a scenic run around the Marine Lake and under the Pier then traversing Kings Gardens before passing through Princes Park again and heading out along closed roads on Marine Drive and Coastal Road before turning back part way along Coastal Road to run through Victoria Park and head back to Marine Drive and under the pier before a final lap around the Lake and Kings Gardens then back into Princes Park to finish.
This is a fast and flat course with lots of PB potential!
Car Parking will be available at Esplanade Car Park at the Eco Centre from 0730hrs with the event due to commence at 0830hrs.
Competitors will be asked to group themselves into the appropriate sections in the Start area according to expected time and electronic chip timing will be used to ensure all participants receive an accurate finish time.
The event will be run in accordance with UK Athletics Standards and Competition Rules.
Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Male and Female overall and Age Group Winners.
All finishers will receive a £7 RedVenom.co.uk and a £10 Ashmei.com voucher that can be redeemed at the finish line on production of your official race number - finishers will also receive a Southport Half Marathon 2013 Medal.
