Its forcast light rain I think, Im taking a hoodie, if it gets too warm ill just take it off and tie it round waist. Good luck everyone for tommorow hope you all achieve the times you want!
It's better to start the race a little cold than to be overdressed.
First time running in this event today and it was absolutely fantastic. Such a well organised and fun event. The start was well done, and people lined up appropriately for their speed so there were no problems with people falling over each other going at different speeds. Well done to all the organisers, and thanks to all the volunteers handing out the water etc as well!
Orbutt - that screaming man was me! I do it well. No harm done and a brilliant day. Well done to one and all.
Yes please, be kind!!
I still cant find race to leave feedback Alan!

I thought this race was excellently organised and a nice new shiny pb for me
Thanks again for a fantastic race and the medal is fab
cant find a link to review on rw...
all in all a great race but more marshalls would have helped alleviate the necessity for the bike-based yelling...
insufficient toilets at start (20+ minute queuing) meant a late start for me and there were plenty of others still queuing behind me.
weather was just right, which helped!
Thanks for your thoughts Liverbird, I've never organised anything like this, so I'm a little in the dark. The only other experience I have of this is the great north run, where 50000 people seem to be sharing fewer toilets and ive only ever seen one or two people queuing for loos at gun time. Of course, there's the bank at the side of the start line too, which doesn't really bear mentioning...
I did actually get approached (whilst in the loo queue) by someone asking where to get replacement numbers - this was at 8:55.....
I enjoyed this run the scenery was lovely and varied which I liked. I thought there were plenty of toilets. A warm up at the beginning is always a good idea too it puts everyone in a good mood and adds a bit of atmosphere. I missed that!
I would say I could have done with a lucozade drink on course at some point rather than just water when I was tire'ing. There wasn't a lot of support either until the last 100 yards.
I got a PW but I did have a cold and just didn't have it in me to push myself.
Overall enjoyed it though & will hopefully be back next year
Thanks for the weather Liverbird - just after you left, the heavens opened!!
Thanks for an excellent event yesterday Alan, it was my first time in the Liverpool Half and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Great route, great support, oh and great weather LB.At the risk of sounding mercenary though, one question, how do winners of the vets prizes go about claiming them?
Vets trophies are sent out once results confimed.
the half marathon was brilliant rarely enjoyed running, got a personal best 10 minutes faster. There were enough toilets available well marshaled and the air cadets and army cadets I thought as usual were excellent. I also tried to rate the race on runners world but the event would not come up .n
all in all a great race and day and good medal well done.
