After many years of running the formerly Natterjack Southport Seaside 10k, Darrell Soden has decided to pass this popular event onto Run North West. On behalf of the wider community we would like to thank Darrell for all his hard work and commitment and say that we are very excited to be given the opportunity to work with this great race.
The race will start on Marine Drive and will head in an anti-clockwise direction to previous years. The full route will once again be fully closed to runners on the day, which makes for a much more runner friendly route with beautiful views across Southport Beach to the Fylde. The remainder of the course will be run around Marine Lake and removes any running on the grass and excludes the historically twisty section of the course at the 5k mark.
The two lap course is run on smooth tarmac through and around the pier. Flat and fast with only gentle undulation, this course promises fast times for club and fun runners alike. Taking in the famous Southport Pier, which is not only Britain’s oldest iron pier but the second longest, the route runs around the Marine Lake, taking in the Theatre and Convention Centre, Marine Lake Promenade, Ocean Plaza and Southport Model Railway.
Following our successful inaugural events, Run North West continues to offer you the chance to run new and varied courses, whilst answering the demand for more choice in quality, value for money races, offering the very best possible on the day experience.
Why not enjoy a day out to the seaside today and take part in the 2018 Southport Seaside 10k.
