  • Did the 10k in 2018

    You did warn of "mud" which was a good thing. The upper field was just a bit dodgy due to the hard dried mud forming ruts which were potential ankle twisters. The fields were, though, a lovely part of the run.

    Would have been nice to have a more secure bag drop.

  • Did the event in 2018

    Great location. out of the boat lift area and then onto a looped course. Very pretty.Cheeky hill up to the finish area which i'd forgot about.Good medal, make sure you pay for parking. I'd do it again
  • Did the event in 2018

    Only remembering when getting into Northwich that I didn’t have any money with me for parking my friend was scrambling round in her bag for change lol I’d already felt disappointed that parking fee wasn’t included in the entry fee. Although I found somewhere else to park near to the boat lift. Walking toward the boat lift there was little signage directing into registration and the start from outside of the facility. We made it in the end though and registration was fast.  The course was beautiful and extremely warm and I was soon loving the run. Marshall’s where lovely and very encouraging. Hoping this event will get bigger and better this being the first one. The goody bag had sweets , cake and chocolate which soon was eaten but I honestly didn’t expect much with the entry fee being so cheap.Well done for a great event !

  • Did the event in 2018

    This is a great triathlon for a beginner. It is based in a big grassy park where there is cheap all day parking, an event village and toilets and showers. The swim and T1 are a 10 minute walk away at Nantwich open air brine pool. The swim and race briefing were well-managed and there was no need for flip-flops because there was matting between the swim and T1. It was a sunny day and the open air pool was a bonus. I'd been for a recce swim the week before and the water had seemed colder than it did on the day, but the recce swim prompted me to get my head and shoulders under the water before I was counted off to start.The bike leg was on mainly quiet lanes and was well-marshalled. The route was gently undulating and a race car drove around the route throughout the event. Arrival into T2 was easy and good for supporters to get close. Water was available straight out of T2 and at the start of every lap of the run. I'm not usually keen on running on grass, but the grass in Bariny Park was flat and even and I was fine in road running shoes. The run is 4 laps and goes right through the event village and the atmosphere created by the picnicking spectators. I'd recommend this triathlon to first timers, and to anyone keen on an open air pool. The pool was a stand-out feature for me, as was the, as yet unmentioned, post race massage.
  • Did the event in 2018

    First race I've done for a couple of years and this one seemed perfect, an outdoor pool , fast flat course through Cheshire plains and a grassy run. I would do this again, nice little tri
  • Did the event in 2016

    Superb event, would recommend to anyone as a first, or someone chasing a PB, brilliant for all abilities, spectator friendly and a perfectly ran event

Jubilee Relay Moel Famau

This event is completed in teams of 2. Its very simple in theory - 1 runner runs up to the summit of Moel Famau, then hands over the timing band to their teammate who descends as quickly as possible to the finish! The initial section through the fields is marked and MUST be followed, however after a few hundred metres and once out onto the open hillside, YOU choose your route! For descending runners, its obviously the other way around - descend via whichever route you want, until the final approach to the finish where you pick up the marked route through the finishing fields.

  • Did the event in 2018

    I had done the spring Cheshire Triathlon in May, and the course for this event was the same. I really enjoyed it again, not least for the location, and the facilities.
    The organisation was really good, and the Nantwich brine pool is fantastic. I knew I would find the water quite cold, so I had a pre-swim cold shower on the poolside- this took my breath away but made the pool water feel warm. The bike course is on quiet lanes and there were plenty of marshals and signs. As the run is 4 laps of the park where car parking and supporters are all gathered, you end the NW Triathlon surrounded by support, buoyant music, and commentary., and it’s also possible to end the event with a post-race picnic. I think it’s a very good first triathlon, and a good one for people who want to swim outside in an open air pool.
  • Did the event in 2018

    My first tri. Generally v good. Lots of good info online beforehand etc. Course was pretty good.

    Was on poolside in time for race brief but it didn’t happen in time for my start time. T1 was a little cramped. Results took ages to be posted online.

    Otherwise, very easy to participate. I’ll be back.

  • Did the event in 2017

I would like to thank everyone involved in this event and a special thanks to the amazing marshalls who were so encouraging along the way.

  • Did the event in 2018

    Last year I completed the Liverpool Spring 10k, it was two laps round the glorious Sefton Park in the sun and I couldn’t wait to sign up again!This year the route had changed to incorporate the iconic cathedrals of Liverpool, starting at the Catholic Metropolitan cathedral and making its way past the Anglican Cathedral down into two parks of Liverpool. This included Princes Park and the larger Sefton Park. As soon as we entered Sefton Park the crowds were amazing. Lots of cheering and support, along with the usual drummers and musical acts.The last 6K went by so quickly as we looped around the lakes in the park and past the famous Palm House – a Dome-shaped Victorian palm house situated in the centre of the park.I strongly recommend this race, it is organised by couple Matt and Sam Davies and they put their heart and souls into ensuring the T-Shirts are amazing, and the medals are worth the run! This year the reward was a trophy style medal which stands up on your mantlepiece (or office desk!).The thing I really love about the event is that it forms part of a weekend where there is a timed 5K and a Kids 1K. The timed 5K is a wonderful chance for newer runners to push themselves and get a feel for an official race. The event is chip timed, there are bands around the route and finishers are rewarded with a lovely medal and training t-shirt. When 5Ks are labelled as “fun runs” the terminology can often take away from how much of an amazing feat 5K is for any runner so Matt and Sam stay away from this. Last year two of my friends did their first 5Ks at this event and it gave them a massive sense of achievement, one went on to do a half marathon the next year. To conclude a good time was had by all amazing route, great medals and t-shirts, fabulous weather and a well organised and enjoyable run!
  • Did the event in 2018

    Easy registration process and race number arrived in plenty of time beforehandVery well organised set up pre race with more than enough toilets a very efficient baggage drop. Colour coded starter pens made for a very good startA new route means the run starts by the Catholic Cathedral and goes down Hope St and Princess Ave, both wide enough to easily accomodate the masses of runners. The final 6km enters familiar territory with a few loops within Sefton Park with the trees providing decent shade on a hot morning. A cheeky incline brings you onto a short finishing straightSupport was minimal in the residential areas but was much more evident in the Park with a couple of drumming bands and a packed finishing areaA well set out area after the finish line made water, t-shirt and medal collection very easy with both the shirt and medal being good quality. There was a massive field next to finish were runners could meet up, compare times, get burgers and ice cream and bag collection was easy. Free buses ferried runners back to the start area

  • Did the event in 2018

    This was my first ever race so perhaps im not the best person to review it.

    Llandegla is known for its mountain bike tracks, however Up Hill Down Dale have made use of the facility really well.

    It was a scorching day and the forest provides a sun trap. There is a car park and possible surrounding areas for a picnic which is what myself the wife and kids did before the race, i ate a banana they had a picnic!

    Otherwise there is a cafe and shop, however logistically there is no real space for an athletes village or any pop up stands. Having said that they did offer a massage facility.

    The 10k trail race briefing warned us that this would feel like a half marathon and that it wasnt easy. They were right, the course was very undulating with some long hills and also some really sharp ones. The route required the ducking and diving through the forest whilst at the same time keeping an eye out for pits, falls and tree roots. I was surprised how much of the course was on gravel roads and paths rather than mud and grass routes but then again i wasnt sure what to expect and the weather had been dry for some time.

    There was one basic water station, i think at the half way mark, this was very welcome following a really long hard stone track in the baking sun up hill for roughly a mile. The course is marked sufficiently, however the facility remains open to walkers and cyclists therefore beware of collisions.

    The race finishes back at the cafe/shop area and includes a few sharp up hills in the last 2 miles which are brutal. Its a small event with 400-500 entrants overall, which makes it very friendly.

    There is a tech shirt and medal for all finishers as well as unlimited ice lollies, water and fruit at the end which is very welcome. There is a crafted shield for podium finisher also.

    I would recommend this race to anyone and everyone, it was a great first race for myself and i do love trail running. This is also part of a 3 part series including Bala and Brynkillt which i intend to complete at some point.

  • Did the event in 2018

    This was my second ever 10K and my first trail run. It was a tough event with very steep, varied terrain. Organisation was spot on and very welcoming. I was a bit nervous, not knowing what to expect so the race briefing was really helpful, and funny too :)One "work on" - having the Canicross running the same course at the same time was tricky when running down through the woods on a narrow route - dogs were getting tangled round trees and we were regularly being asked to stop to let the canicrossers by. That can be a bit frustrating when you're trying hard and concentrating on not falling over tree roots / getting stuck in bogs!Overall this was a super event though and I can't wait to have another go next year.
  • Did the event in 2017

    I did the 24k version of this in 2016 which was 2 12k loops on a tough but pleasant course.This year in 2017 I was a little more under trained so I decided to take it easy on the new 10k route, but there was a new half marathon route as well for those who wanted the punishment of a tough a fairly tough trail run. I say fairly tough as I don't want to put people off, they are as hard as you make them subject to your pace and whether you have any little walk breaks etc.Coed Lllandegla is a mountain biking mecca so has a facility called the One Planet Adventure Centre which is a big wooden/log building with a generous sized indoor and outdoor cafe and eating facilities inc a BBQ on some days. It also has a mountain bike shop in there and toilet facilities, and not forgetting for the mountain bikers a hire facility for bikes.The organization was top draw as always , and for a company that only set up last year it is a welcome sigh of relief as there are a fair few dubious and unreliable event companies out there.Much to their credit Up Hill Down Dale announced this year that all profits go to charity which is a fine testament to a company with the right ethics and a genuine kindness towards others.The new route was a challenge with a total of 1100ft+ of climb overall in a 10k! A lot of the climbs were shortish one and a lot of them grouped toward the end so it was a tough challenge if your legs were tired.The mix of terrain was superb. You had trail, forest path, fire road, forest floors, lakeside paths etc etc, it was a constant change from one to another with no long stretches.Llandegla forest itself is a lovely place with great surounding scenery and when you are at the highest point on the course you get a good look at it. It is also a treat to travel to and from and is not that far away from Wrexham so is easy to get to, it's roughly an hour from Liverpool as well.Overall I would rcommend this event to anyone as I have done it twice and both have been pretty much the best trail 10k and half I have been to.Also woth noting they now do a Cannicross or CanyX as they call it.

  • Did the event in 2018

    I wasn't sure about doing this race as it has a reputation of being only for speedy club runners. Although I train with Mersey Tri, I don't consider myself a fast runner. I looked at last year's times and decided that I would not be last, so took the plunge.The registration process was a revelation! On arrival, I was directed to an ipad, and very like my doctor's surgery, asked to input my date of birth and name. It then allocated me a number and, no sooner had I turned round to see where the numbers where, the race director himself handed me my bib! Impressive stuff.I also received a text immediately following the race with my time and followed up with an email. Nifty Entries have always been ahead of the timing game and here they proved that again.The race HQ was at the Birkenhead park visitor centre. I didn't have to queue to use the toilets there so that was a bonus. I was there quite early so I don't know if the queues built up later.There was a family run of 1 mile at 7pm before the main race at 7.30pm. This seemed to be well attended and the junior particpants each got a medal.We set off on time for one medium lap and 3 full laps of the Upper Park. As predicted, there were lots of serious club runners who soon lapped me but I was content with my own pace and I soon began to overtake people who had maybe set off too hard.The course was undulating but not too hard. It was warm and sunny but a nice breeze kept it relatively cool.One thing I would have liked was perhaps some sort of memento, not necessarily a T shirt or medal, but perhaps a buff with Wirral AC colours on it. I haven't marked the race down for this as it was only £10 to enter and I know that the cost would increase if things like these were included. Lots of runners don't necessarily want them.Overall, thoroughly enjoyed my first attempt at a club race and would definitely return next year.

    Organiser replied:
    Hey Anne, thanks for your review, and also kudos for taking the plunge into the world of club racing! I spoke to you briefly around number collection. The club scene can be quite intimidating, especially to women, as evidenced in our (extremely) poor field gender splits over the years- see for yourself via the 'our races' tab on the Wirral AC website, historic results linked on the Birkenhead Park 5 page. Absolutely shocking. We (Race director Ronan and I) decided to try and change that via a wider SM campaign in the build up (to attract people who were not necessarily aware of the race) and engage on Twitter with more people, including the local experts in getting people out running, our wonderful local parkrun team. We got a 40/60 gender split in registrations, which although way better than anything previously seen is still not that great and we want to do better next year. Clearly that takes additional work and understanding so any tips appreciated. Part of this will be seeing if we can up the race limit which depends on facilities. From my limited view (I was dishing out numbers with Ronan's daughter Emily) I didn't see many issues but I was quite busy in spells. 350 people came through in around 80 minutes, which although hectic at times was quite manageable with 4 tablets and 2 people plus Nifty expert around to handle any IT oddities (almost none). 600 hundred would be doable with 6 tablets and 3 people, it follows. Could the rest of the setup handle that number though? I think so but didn't see everything. Mementos. It's partly a question of time and organisational complexity, also cost as you mention. That said, I did float the idea of a race poster, which would be available at extra cost, but it seems a bit 'out there' as far as usual stuff goes. Dunno if people would pay for something designed by eg these talented New Brighton types: https://www.toucan-tango.com/ Thanks again! Al

    Simple registration process and only £10 to enterRace bib collection was done by a simple touch screen method using two tablets, just enter DOB and your name and race no. is issued within secondsCourse was all within a local park comprising 1 small lap followed by 3 longer lapsRace timing by Niftytiming with a text sent showing Chip Time within minutes of finishing400 runner limit for the race, this was sold out in advance so no entries on the night as has been the case previouslyVery popular with Merseyside Clubs so i'll expect it to be a sell out next year

    Organiser replied:
    Thanks for taking the time to post a review Brian. Glad the number collection was something you liked, our timing partner Nifty Entries has an excellent solution and hopefully it will become commonplace in future. It's really the key bottleneck to unlock before considering the following question: How many runners could the race handle? (on the current course and with the current facilities). We ask because the current race limit of 400 is based on.....nothing at all, other that 'pick a number which is way more than we'll ever get turning up'. So we may look to increase the race limit but only to the point the facilities can handle it. I was handing out numbers with Emily (It helps to have a sub-17 5k runner if you need people to run around handing out numbers :-) ) so didn't see if there was problems with facilities capacity. Certainly no reports of any issues but often that doesn't mean there were none. Thanks for coming along and supporting our club race, it is very much appreciated and hopefully people enjoyed the night and watching Jonny (isn't he fast!).
  • Did the event in 2018

    I did the race last year as it was in the amazing Birkenhead park (home of the world famous Birkenhead parkrun). The race took place in the lower park.Last year it rained a lot,this year it was very warm.Registration was excellent,lots of iPads set up and you tapped in your birth date and hey presto a number was handed to you by a marshal.So easy.The course was well marshalled and I received a text with my time straight away after I crossed the line.Great value for money.Think I'd like the rain back next year as I ran a bit quicker then

    Thanks for the review! The number collection process is something we received a lot of feedback about last year and we wanted to make it much easier. Our entries partner Nifty Entries recently launched the tablet-based registration at Christleton and it seemed to work pretty well- numbers are allocated sequentially as people tap in, so no searching through lists or a pile of numbers required- just take the next number and hand it to the person who just tapped in- the marshal's tablets displayed a live list of names/numbers so they could call names immediately.
