Southport half marathon

Anyone doing this ?


  • I thought about it as part of the Tour of Merseyside thing, but I'm at an AGM that day in the midlands 

  • yep i'm in looks like a super quick track so going to give it a blast


  • Defo looks like a PB course.

  • potters arf on Sunday as a warm up to this looking forward to it but its quite an early start 8.30 seems a bit odd.

  • 8.30am start to minimise the disruption caused by road closure. Early start is no bad thing as the wind often gets up mid-morning and should not be too warm if nice weather persists. Pancake flat pb course

    This will be the first Southport Half Marathon since 1999 - link above to winners of previous Southport races



  • ive just entered. looking forwards to running through the parks there, started running last year age 54 and love it,this will be my 3rd hm along with preston and Manchester marathons. good to see lack of hills, helps at my age lol

  • I work in the area and the route they're using appears to be the same one I do most of my long runs on....flat as a pancake  

  • Anyone got the race pack yet ?

  • They sent them out yesterday according to the site. 


    provisional weather forecast is bright + sunny with 2mph wind - fingers crossed this forecast is right as it is usually blowing in gale in Southport

  • I am running it as well as part of training fro chester marathon looking forward to it hopefully as good as mad dog 10k in feb good flat course there as well.

  • Same with regards to Chester training. Anyone in the windmill half next weekend?

  • still no race pack 

  • Tour Of Merseyside runners will be joining in on Sunday at Southport to kickstart their 52 mile week. Bring it on!

  • I received my race number today 233 can't wait for sunday
