  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    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

    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!
  • Did the event in 2018

    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

  • Did the event in 2017

    This is a lovely little race run by a superb local running club, Knowsley Harriers, and is popular with the other Merseyside clubs.The course is up and down the Liverpool Loopline trail but it is not entirely closed so you do have to share the course with the odd cyclist or dog walker.It is run in a great spirit, super friendly & well marshalled. It is timed using a similar system to our beloved ParkRuns and full results are available online later that day.

    Amazing. My first marathon, brilliant course through the city centre taking in football stadiums & parks along the way. I'll be back in 2019.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2015

    This was a great fun event, really enjoyed it and the music really kept me going!
  • Did the event in 2018

    Tough run in the heat meant a slow time- plenty of drink stations and well manned helped.

    The course was well planned and easy to follow with plenty marahals and supporters alonf the route.

    I juat wish the promenade was shorted as it was never ending.

    As always an amazing medal and great entertainment after.

  • Did the event in 2018

    Was really looking dad to this but...I felt it was dangerous and was glad when it was over. I'm part of a cycling club and the riding I saw was shocking!
    Would not do this again and wouldn't advise anyone else to do it.
  • Did the event in 2018

    not really a race unless you want it to be and get there early. Its very relaxed family outing. Unique chance to ride through the tunnels round the wirral to chester and back.Plenty of options for different course lengths.
  • Did the event in 2018

    It’s a real shame about this event as it could really could be so much better than it is. It departs and finishes with the fun of cycling in the Mersey tunnel ! a weird but really enjoyable part of the event.The actual start was a bit of a non-event. it was a case of just turn up and get going, no race briefing, no safety checks (i`ll get onto that in a minute) just a guy on a mic trying to get the riders motivated.Upon starting it was shocking to see how many participants were allowed to take part without a helmet, or on bikes in poor condition. We saw well over a dozen cyclists without helmets in our time on the route. Also no race numbers, or numbers in the incorrect place. This should have been picked up at the start.This isnt the organisers fault but there were also a number of cyclists running red lights, cycling way too close to others, dodging in and out of traffic, bullying their way through other cyclists. My wife after 10 miles was contemplating just calling it a day and heading back to the car.She had paid over £2,000 for her carbon pride and joy and was worried that inconsiderate cyclists were putting her in danger (which they were)We stopped briefly at the 13 mile “food” stop while we used the toilet. From what I could see you had to buy your food, a first for an organised sportive. Same also at the 25 mile stop. We skipped the 38 mile and just cracked onto the finish.The finish was again a return journey under the Mersey which again was great fun but what an anti-climax the finish was…. Came out the tunnel, handed a water a medal and told to get out the way. It was just a very small patch of the road and that was it.The organisers of this event really need to look at other local sportives and take notes. Le Petite depart, Bike Chester and the Fred Whitton. See how they do it.I have done dozens of sportives over the years and this has by far the worst example of ignoring the highway code i have ever seen. Is this the organisers fault ? no it isnt but because of this and other factors i most certainly will not be back.

    This is a popular series of races locally. The course is straight and mostly flat. If you’re lucky enough to get a tail wind the a PB is a definite possibility. Marshalling is fairly sparse on the course but mostly not really necessary as there are so few turns. Marshalls where they are needed were efficient and friendly. The course is mostly the local promenade so is open to the general public, including dog walkers and bike riders, but mostly people were considerate and a few of the bystanders cheered the runners on. Races are well attended but probably more suited to quicker runners who can keep pace with the field. Would definitely go again.

The Seaside Runs provide a regular 5k race for both regular runners and beginners. Although each race is intended to be a lower key race than other established events locally it still attracts not only the beginner runners who may not yet have the confidence to go for a big race but also the more established club runners who like a regular measure of their training and standard.

Sale Sizzler 4 x 5k – Race 2

Sizzling news is weve tweaked the course to now have a common start and finish located close to the 400m start line. Youll use lane 1 inbound. Outbound youll run clockwise and inbound anti clockwise. It was Confucius who said, To grow is to change, to become perfect is to have changed often so hope its even faster with that final 350m blast to the finish when you get back onto the track.

In conjunction with this tweak, Ive decided to also launch a new era for course records. The Sizzlers hold amazing, nationally ranking 5k records (thats how fast the course is)but several are reasonably out of reach so to give you a new impetus well bank the current ones and begin a new era with last years fastest times.

  • Did the 5K in 2018

    This was my first time running this race, having juts moved to the area. It starts from a good, easy to get to location--Mold leisure centre. I arrived before they closed the road at 8am and found easy parking. There was some confusion where to pick up bib and timing chip as no signs pointed the way, I just followed others! Collecting bib was easy and quick (also had a look at the tshirts for sale cheaply from other races). Toilets were easy to find without a queue. Getting to start line was easy and the race set off without hassle. The route itself was good, but didn't pass anything too interesting, I didn't like at one point you either had to run single file on the pavement ot step out on to a busy road, as this part was uphill there was a lot of running on the road past the walkers on the pavement, I felt a bit unsafe. Soon enough it was the finishing point, back at the centre and the crowd was good. Good race, would run again.

    Good 2 lap race with a big hill to do
    there are 3 races on the day 1k fun run, then the 5k and finally the 10k, each of which are run separately. So if doing the 10k you have a lot of waiting around as they wont start the next race until the last competitor of the previous one has finished.
    there is no goodie bag with this one and if you need a different size t shirt you can forget it [not very helpful]
