      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 Half Marathon in 2018

      It was my first ever race. Loved it! Only thing Id recommend is a healthier food range in the grandstands. It seemed the only food you could buy wasnt exactly sticking with the healthy running theme.

    About the event
    From the organiser

    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 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

    Hell of a Hill Marathon is arguably the toughest 26.2 miles in the UK, and the toughest 5 consecutive marathons in 5 days in the World - only the toughest dare to challenge the Hill for 5 consecutive days! The mighty Rivington Pike stands 1,191ft tall on the West Pennine Moors, and runners have to pass over the summit a massive 40 times to complete the challenge of a lifetime. A total of 30,000ft of elevation gain (Mount Everest!) and 131 miles of tough stone and mud trail running in the cold Winter months!.

      Bloody amazing day out with Shell! If you’ve not attempted this gigantic lump of a race then you’re needing to reset you’re priorities.

      It’s tough, lumpy (6 times lumpy) with amazing views (past the mist) and cracking camaraderie!

      Get it booked. In fact get the whole 5 days in the calender.

    • Did the event in 2018

      It's a tough, challenging marathon. Very technical terrain - choose your footwear carefully. I went with massive cushioning for the rocky downhills 'cause I love those and needed to take advantage of them. Anything minimal will leave you tip-toeing those sections but maybe more sprightly up the climbs. It's a half mile long. Aim to run steady, even laps and save enough for the 3.5 road/trail leg back to HQ if you're running throughout the week - completing the 5 laps can feel like "I'm done" - but the run back can feel a very long way.
    • Did the event in 2017

      I entered this event after completing the Bolton Hill Marathon. Despite an injury I still took part with some thanks to a generous cut off time.It's one marathon a day across 5 days. Complete one, two or all five! The event had a new HQ with loos, changing facilities etc. A canteen with hot drinks and food and free parking. The route was well marked and easy to follow. There were a few marshalls but the main crew was at the feed station at the start of tbe lap. No navigation was imo needed. It was a tough course which got tougher each lap!There was bling with the option to buy a tee. Unfortunately no race photography on the first days of event.A great event that you feel you've accomplished something at the end and you could collect all five medals which join to make one.

      Lovely route by the sea. Registration was in a lighthouse and the organisers were very reassuring given that this was my first race. Very good for novices and part of a series so, if you like it, you can repeat it to try and improve your time.

      Tough run in the heat meant a slow time- plenty of drink stations and well manned helped.

      The course was well planned and easy to follow with plenty marahals and supporters alonf the route.

      I juat wish the promenade was shorted as it was never ending.

      As always an amazing medal and great entertainment after.

      Run Heaton was an undulating, multi-lap race which had 5k, 10k and Half Marathon options.
      Parking, baggage and number collection were all effortless.
      Half marathon distance consisted of a partial loop, followed by 3 full laps. Heaton Park is a beautiful setting for a race. Paths were good for running on, although the 2x significant hills on each lap, make it a nice challenge.
      Water station was on each lap, so approximately every 3miles.
      Marshals were absolutely brilliant, as were the small but enthusiastic support.
      Finishers received a decent medal, flap jack, banana ect.
      There was also a FREE post-race massage option and FREE photographs.
      In summary-
      Well organised, well marshalled, friendly race and good value.
      Free massage & photos was an unexpected bonus.
      The course is quite challenging but not too bad.
      I'd certainly do this race again.

      This is a lovely little race run by a superb local running club, Knowsley Harriers, and is popular with the other Merseyside clubs.The course is up and down the Liverpool Loopline trail but it is not entirely closed so you do have to share the course with the odd cyclist or dog walker.It is run in a great spirit, super friendly & well marshalled. It is timed using a similar system to our beloved ParkRuns and full results are available online later that day.

      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!).

      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

      Organiser replied:
      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.
