Finish is better to be honest.
As long as it doesn't involve pom poms!

One pom, one tassle?
Anybody got any quick cures for blisters? I stupidly went hill walking at the weekend and now have 6 perlers adorning my feet.
I will still be running/hobbling though come what may
Is anyone else still waiting for their number or is it just me?
Alan - what should I do if it doesn't arrive before Sunday? And do you have an update as to whether the trains on the Northern line to Liverpool from Ormskirk will be running? I remember you saying that there were planned engineering works again (as with last year's Tunnel 10k) but I'd like to get down to Moorfields by train if at all possible....
Thanks in advance!
Good luck everybody for Sunday. One more run for me tomorrow then carbs, carbs and more carbs I love taper week.
P.S. I vote Tassels and Pom Pom's!
P.P.S. What time does the tunnel shut for traffic?
5 days to go folks !!
Tassles have my vote
Meeting up at the start and finnish sounds good - some local knowledge about best places to meet up needed and green ribbons to identfy each other - I am easy to spot - the fat bloke looking lost !!
I wont be running on Sunday guys, but just thought I'd wish you all good luck.
I'm hoping to be at the finish with my wife and twins.
What's the best thing to do.. Park at New Brighton and get the train to the start (what time train would I need to get??)
Or get a lift to the start and then be met at finish - seems easier for me. . but would it be easy enough for friends to get to other side to meet me (they will have an hour til I finish I reckon!!) Am coming from the midlands and don't really know liverpool at all but looking forwrad to it!
The start is very close to Moorfields station, which is one of the stations on the 'loop' in Liverpool city centre. If you park in New Brighton and get the train back to Liverpool (which I personally would do in your situation), the train stops at Moorfields before getting to Lime Street and Liverpool Central. Moorfields is a bit of a maze but you'll be fine if you just follow the signs for the Moorfields exit.
Trains leave New Brighton station at 23 and 53 past the hour on Sundays and take about 20 minutes. So the 8:53 train gets you to Moorfields for 9:15, and you're literally a 2-minute walk to the start so it would give you plenty of time for the 10am start. I'm guessing also you'll be able to get the train for free.
As with all things like this though, give yourself plenty of time and hope you have a great day!
