We have increased the capacity and increased the entertainment and music on the traffic free route which includes Lord Street in Southport town centre and a start/finish area with live music and entertainment in Victoria Park.

Fully UKA Licensed with HM & 10k courses accurately measured and officially certified distances.

On the day we will also be running a free family mile event, with medals for all finishers. We're hoping to make the family mile the biggest event ever and encourage 1000 local children to take part.

Southport Half Marathon & 10k routes


The Half Marathon and 10k runners will start in Victoria Park and then head north along Lord St before the 10k turns left and heads around the Lake before returning to Victoria park along the Coast. The Half Marathon continues north after Lord St before taking in the beautiful Hesketh Park (home of Southport parkrun and then passed the Golf Club before returning to the coast and heading south towards the Marine Lake, then along Promenade and under the Pier, through Kings Gardens, around the Marine Lake and back to the coast via the lakeside pathway before heading south again and returning for a Finish in Victoria Park. The Family Mile will take place entirely within Victoria Park starting at 1120hrs after a large proportion (but not all) of the 10k/HM participants have finished. The course is flat, fast and the surface is tarmac for the majority of the route. The path alongside the western side of the Marine Lake is quite narrow in areas, please show caution in this section.

    Did the 13 1 Miles in 2019

    This is a good half but the weather makes it tough either really windy or really hot the long stretch can be tough but finishes nice around the lake

    Did the 10 Km in 2019

    A great well organised race. No issues on the day. Number arrived in plenty of time. Second year doing this race, will definayly do again.
  • Did the 10 Km in 2019

    Brilliant event great atmosphere well.organised and brilliant Marshall's. Will definitely be back. My daughter also loved the mile race. Even though it wasnt a mile. Lol she loved the red carpet and all the cheering at the finish
  • Did the 10 Km in 2019

    Really enjoyed the run, first time doing it, it was a fast flat course but the wind down the promenade did slow me down a bit, really friendly and encouraging Marshall's and a great atmosphere.
  • Did the 13 1 Miles in 2019

    Good course, well organised but a bottleneck and slow section in first mile due to gateway and narrow path. The drumming band at finish was rousing, would be great to have something similar along route. Main car park slow to access on entry due to collection of car parking fee. Plenty water, gels and sweetie stations. Great t-shirt and medal. BRILLIANT family fun run with personalised numbers for children and a super medal.
