Reading through the Event Rating comments for the 2012 event I would advise that the race is likely to have a new start / finish area at the Pier Head. This was proposed for 2012 but due to building work in the finish area it was not possible. Neither was it possible to arrange starting pens this year due to the physical restrictions of the roadway. The would have been access only from one side if pens were introduced.
Whilst I appreciate the 'constructive criticism' I would always advise that there is normally a reason why things don't (or can't) happen. This is why we have a de-brief and development plan in place for each of our events.
Since 2009 when I managed to bring the event back into the city I would argue the event has improved significantly and this development process will continue.
The race limit will be set at 7,500 due to physical restrictions along some parts of the course and entries will open on Friday, 4th May.
There will be a reduced entry fee of £2 until the end of July.
