Not really as the instructions were all pretty good. Parking wasnt an issue as parked close to the start/finish so didnt need to use the bag drop.

Location of the start line would have been better communicated. I parked at the north pier, but it was further down near the hilton hotel.Whilst i knew about the extra 5 for signing up on the day, this took the price to 28. For a half marathon, where the route didnt even cover the main attractions of blackpool, i felt this was excessive.

mainly flat with a slight up hill good water stations and gells to fuel. The atmosphere is what makes this a great place to run the crowd are very supportive and it's a flyd coast run so you know it's well organised

The hotel where I stayed the great western just across from the start line didn't know anything about the run or that it was in its 29th year?! If it wasn't for runners in kit they wouldn't have known. Funny that.
