      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.

    • Did the event in 2018

      Loved the race. All the family took part includes a 5k, 10k, half and full marathon. 10k was very hot and tricky running back down the promonade. Great atmosphere and a good event for all of the family.
    • Did the event in 2018

      This was my third time of running this half marathon, and once again no complaints. It's a road/path course and flat most of the way, with just slight inclines in the second half of the race. Good supplies of water every few miles.Support on the course is thin, so some may like their own music to listen to. It's right along the sea front and this can bring some inclement weather. This year it was cold, wet and windy, but last year it was warm and sunny. Be prepared for all eventualities.A straightforward run with no hick ups. FCR events are always pretty good in my opinion. A good medal and t-shirt at the finish, with chip timing as standard.Give it a go, you'll probably enjoy it and may even PB.
    • Did the event in 2018

      FCR Events have been recommended in the past, and this is the first one I have done. Registration is simple and the company offer various events all year through their website. I got to Blackpool early and found a car park close to the start line, which was a bonus after running 26.2 miles....The Marathon and Half Marathon started at the same time, but in opposite directions and was well sign posted. The race went along the promenade from the north end of Blackpool, past the Tower, attractions and the Pleasure Beach. You then turned around and ran back along to Bispham, then back again. The added bonus is that the event had a full road closure along the front so the course was traffic free. The support was quiet early on, (started at 09:30), and it was raining. Crowds steadily got busier and the weather slowly improved. The last few miles was run in glorious sunshine and was actually quite warm. Upon finishing, you were handed a bottle of water, banana, chocolate, tshirt and a medal. All in all, it was a great event and I will certainly look at doing more FCR events in the future. PS: The medal is a cracker!

    Trail shoes are recommended, however standard running shoes can also be used. The route has been measured using a Garmin. Due to the terrain, an official measurement cannot be performed, but it is spot on.

      Did this race today. First time I've done it and the first time I have ever ran on sand. Only 112 people did it today mainly due to another race in Blackpool today toward the centre of town. It made no difference though it was a lovely day and lovely race. Everybody was really friendly and helpful and the beach was stunning in the sun. Loved it. Well done

      Got an email on Wednesday saying the medals were in danger of not arriving for the race today. Unfortunately they didn't. That didn't bother me as sometimes these things happen. Logistics I suppose. An excellent arranged event starting at middle promenade, lots of people and you run down on a path next to the sea wall upto bispham. Very flat, slight undulating on the way back but nothing that bad tbh. Parking is easy in Blackpool as always. Another great FCR event. Well done

    • Did the event in 2017

      second time I have done this race and second time they have booked fantastic weather.this race is a small local race around a local lake/ wooded area on mainly gravel paths and a bit of grass here and there. I've only ever done it in good weather so always been good underfoot could imagine if wet may be slippy in places.i only entered on the day which unfortunately meant I missed the free pie and peas you get if you enter online, but to be fair there were pies offered round at the end. The registration process was nice and friendly, it's held in a rugby club so plenty of toilets, can be hard work when there's just one portaloo.you have to walk a little way to the start but its well signed and real friendly marshals helping you along the way,the start is a little cramped as the paths are only small but I think this adds to the atmosphere, for any serious pb chasers I suggest getting to the front as it's a while before the pack spreads out.the run itself is sort of figure of 8 around a lake and woods although only small it's a great route, there's good support on the way and because it's only small you pass the same groups a couple of times.There is a water station at around 4K in which you also pass just after 8k which I think is quite rare in small races it was well stocked with half filed cups of water, which I prefer to bottles (too much waste )its a really scenic route as you drive into the race you wouldn't think that you would be running round such a nice place.the finish is outside the rugby club on the field and both times I have done it has had great support. There is a water station at the finish.snd if your lucky enough to have entered online you can go into the club for your free pie and peas.all in all great local small race, well worth the money friendly helpful marshals, I really like local friendly races like this, one touch which I thought was good was at the presentation they had got ribbon to match the club colours for whoever had won. Definitley be back again really enjoyed my local race.And to top of a great day managed a 10k pb

      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!

      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

    A beautiful two lap course around Stanley Park. A fun event for all abilities and ages. The event uses the same course in the park as the Stanley Park 10k earlier in the year. Starting and finishing on the running track the route follows the well maintained pathways around the park. It is a two lap course, so is great for spectators who wish to stay at the track.

    It is also very flat and accurately measured.

      I entered this race because I was spending the day in Blackpool for my daughter's dance event and it was a good use of my time between registration and the show.

      The course is Run in the same location as the Blackpool Parkrun.

      Registration was pretty standard in terms of collecting a number on the day and although the bag drop was unmanned, it was still there and the contents in tact after the race.

      I've never done an event which starts and ends on an athletics track. The course is two laps so the athletics track is involved at the beginning, middle and end.

      There's nothing that I could fault about logistics or the briefing. The marshals were a friendly bunch. The park is impressive and in the nicest possible way a real contrast from the busy tourist area down the road.

      Support on the course was limited which is to be expected inside a park but the available supporters were encouraging.

      The finish on the track encouraged a bit of a final effort. The volunteer at the finish line proudly told me that the medal incorporates a beer bottle opener and I've tried it and it works. The medal itself is one of the better ones that I've had from a 10K. Everyone received a bottle of water and a Cadbury's Freddo which was a nice combo.

      The course has a certificate of accuracy and I clocked it as 6.17 which is close enough.

      The sports centre nearby allowed those who needed a shower to use the facilities.

      In summary, well done Fylde Coast Runners.

    About the event
    From the organiser

    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 event will be ran on totally closed traffic free roads over 10k starting and finishing in Princess Park, Southport.

    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 Britains 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.

      Great course, if a little boring doing two laps. Marshall were fabulous and I loves the flapjack at the end.
    • Did the event in 2018

      Really flat and a quick course if your looking for a PB, this is the one for you and a nice quality finishers t-shirt and medal. Overall good race
    • Did the event in 2018

      First time at this race and wasn't disappointed. Run Northwest as usual done an excellent job and the Marshalls were superb.
      The Start line was a bit cramped & the first turn towards Pleasureland was a bit tight getting everyone through those posts in the ground but all OK.
      Excellent Medal & T Shirt
      Would recommend to do this race

    • Did the Run Preston 10k in 2018

      It was a really tough 6 miles which i did not do under 1 hour
    • Did the event in 2018

      Very well supported route with a drinks station at 5km. Well organised and a great start and finish in the center of Preston. Be warned a lot of the route is on narrow paths and you do get a bit fed up of trying to get past other runners or alternatively feeling as though you are in the way of faster runners. Not great. The paths along the river ribble are 2 runners wide and alot of people choose to run 2 abreast with earphones in.

      Great goody bag at the finish with a nice t-shirt and medal along with soreen (which my wife pinched) Its a good event but because of the narrow paths I doubt i`ll be back. Organisers maybe look at an alternative route?

    • Did the event in 2018

      Second time I have done this race. Parking easy you run out of Preston through Avenham park and out of Preston then back in. Lovely course. A few hills especially coming back up Avenham park. Lovely finish and bling. They'd ran out of XL t shirts which was annoying but I need to lose weight. Marshalls all good and friendly

    • Did the 10k in 2019

      Managed to park only a 5 minute walk away near the golf course. Pre entered and was quickly given my number. Congested start but to be expected for the turnout. Nice course, flat with a few undulations. Well marshalled with no chance of a wrong turn. Well organised event. If you like 10k road races I would recommend this event.
    • Did the 10k in 2019

      Garstang 10k is a good way of getting back into the swing of things after the December festivities! Lots of helpful marshals for parking and the race itself. About 90% of the race is on roads but I felt safe the whole way round with plenty of marshals taking care of traffic management. The course is relatively flat and fast with a few rolling hills \ bridges to add a little challenge. Lots of support from spectators at the start and end of the race. The race is popular with local running groups, why not join a club and see if you can help your club win the team events! I'm looking forward to trying to beat my time next year!
    • Did the 10k in 2019

      Great run,well organised,a picturesque run,mainly in the countryside.Street parking very close by if you need it.Good facilities on site pre and post race in the school.Only gripe would be cupped water rather than bottled mid race,but that said,I very well run event and thoroughly enjoyable

    • Did the event in 2018

      Really enjoyable half marathon scenary was great plenty to observe while running which passers the time no pb for me but was one of my favourites races, car park was right next to start well Marshalled water stations plenty spectators were on hand to give you a clap all in all would recommend even if I did get told it was a boring race and would do it again.
    • Did the event in 2018

      Easy registration process.Parking plentyful near to the course start.The race was slightly delayed by about 10-15mins, being in one of the pens near the back I couldnt really make out the announcements clearly as to why. Both 10K and HM start at the same time.Enoyed the course which was a nice mix of park, urban and sea front. This is a really flat route and certainly one for PBs but the conditions were brutal in the heat with very little shade to be found and despite the run in along the sea front there was not much of a breeze to help in cooling you down. My only gripe with the course is a very narrow exit from the park at the start which causes a bit of a bottleneck but once you are out the route opens up with no congestion after that.  The Marshall and Race Angel support was fantastic in keeping everyone safe.Three water stations were available on the half route with bottles having sports lids which is always a plus for me. No gels but I always carry my own anyway.Nice medal and TShirt at the end along with a bottle of water and a goody bag containing a High5 products... Recovery Bar, EnergyGel, IsoGel and Eloctrolyte Sports drink tablets.Would definetly run this one again.
    • Did the event in 2017

      A very large but well organised race. With so many people, it does get a bit tricky getting around the first mile or so through Victoria park. When you leave the park it does open out a bit and bodes well for PBs and fast times. It heads out towards the marine lake and then heads back to the start/finish area along Marine DriveA good 10k race and one I'd ceratinly look at doing again.

    The Wesham 10k is one of the North Wests oldest continually running 10k road races. Held every November, the race is slightly undulating, running around the lanes of Salwick and Lea Town. The first Wesham 10k race in 1986 was completed by 154 runners. Since then the event has grown continually and regularly attracts a good quality, large field of runners. The Wesham 10k sold out weeks before race day in both 2016 and 2017 and is quickly becoming one of the most popular races in the North West.

      Very dissapointed/annoyed that only 1 water station (5K) and when I got to it at 31mins there was no water left. Really enjoyed the route as mixture of terrain.
    • Did the event in 2017

      This was my first ever race 2 weeks ago so I will always do it every year to remind of where I started. Great local race thru mixed terrain, only downside was the water station at 5k. Water was in cups and by the time you e grabbed one there was less than an inch in the bottom left. My wife passed the station at 31mins (which was nowhere near the back and there was no water left at all) This is the only problem I found today and needs to be sorted by next year, lessons not learned as same problem last year too.Otherwise great race and i will be back again!
