Race 1 (Sunday): Southport Half Marathon,
Start time 9.00am // Victoria Park, Southport, PR8 2BZ

The Tour kicks off at the Southport Half Marathon. The Tour is joining forces with this new event staged by Vital Events and is using their race to get things off to a fast start. Tour runners will simply be using the Southport Half Marathon as a starting point and other runners will be involved who are running the half marathon independently of the Tour. 13 miles done.

**Race 2 (Monday): Thurstaston Multi-Terrain
**Start time 7.00pm // Station Rd, Thurstaston, Wirral, Merseyside, CH61 0HN

The Tour moves across to Wirral with a six mile challenge over track, beach, hill and dale! If anyone has taken part in the original Thurstaston race then you will know what this one is all about. The race starts on the caravan site roadway at the bottom of Station Road and finishes on the common overlooking the Dee Estuary – a great location to recover! That’s 19 miles completed.

**Race 3 (Tuesday): Sustrans Cycle Trail
**Start time 7.00pm // Walton Hall Park Car Park, Blackthorne Rd Entrance, Liverpool L9 1HZ

A flat and fast course along what is known locally as ‘The Ralla’ - an old railway path which is now a very popular cycle path used by many of the local community. This leg will push your Tour mileage up to 29 and counting.

Wednesday – No race

**Race 4 (Thursday): Raging Red Bull 5
**Start time 7.00pm // Otterspool Drive, Liverpool L17 5AL

Starting on the grassed area by the Red Bull monument runners will head north along the prom, as far as the Britannia Pub where there will be a structured u-turn to bring runners back to complete the 5 mile leg.

It's flat and fast, as long as your legs and lungs are up to it!.

34 miles chalked up.

**Race 5 (Friday): Knowsley Cross Country
**Start time 7.00pm // Stadt Moers Park, off Pottery Ln, Whiston, Prescot L35 3RG

Now is the time to dig in as the pressure builds over a six mile cross country course at Stadt Moers Park. Another great venue for spectators who can get close up to the action over a two lap course. 40 miles! How are your legs??

**Race 6 (Saturday): Wirral Coastal Run
**Start time 10.00am // Coastal Dr, Wallasey, Merseyside CH45 3PZ

Well here we are. The final 12 miles over flat terrain along the north Wirral coast line. Starting in New Brighton the race starts at the end of King’s Parade and heads toward Hoylake before turning round to head for home for the final time. This 12 mile stretch will give you the full 52 miles over the week.

As you head towards the finish line how are you feeling? Elated…?
