  • 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

    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!

    Great run down the blackpool front, cheap as chips and for a worthy cause.
  • Did the event in 2017

    For the second time on the trot the sun was shining on Blackpool.I have already reviewed last years so wont rehash the same things again.The exact same course was used as last year. But i did mention that last year there was only 1 water staion at just after the half way stage this year there was another on the way down. Still plastic cups & not bottles.Marshalling was good, road closures went well.Support wasnt as good as last year with not that much on the course but packed at the finish.No shirts given away this year with a replacement headband instaed altough the organisers didnt acknowledge this this omitted that there was ever a t-shirt & just said they were giving away a headband.Headquarters at the Savoy were excellent as well.Medal was the same as last year but thr trainer was different colour.
  • Did the event in 2017

    This is the first time I have run this race, registration was simple as everything was sent in the post, so all I had to do was turn up and run. (Same day registration was available in the Savoy hotel which acted as race HQ)Parking was quiet easy, there is a small car park next to the start but plenty of on street parking around.The start area was booming with local radio providing tunes and encouragement, plenty of portaloo's around and also toilet facilities in the hotel.The course starts at The Savoy hotel and is an out and back route along the Promenade, turning just after the pleasure beach. Water is available just before 5k and is in plastic cups.I really enjoyed this run and would certainly come back,  fantastic value event at only £10.50

  • Did the event in 2018

    Bloody amazing day out with Shell! If you’ve not attempted this gigantic lump of a race then you’re needing to reset you’re priorities.

    It’s tough, lumpy (6 times lumpy) with amazing views (past the mist) and cracking camaraderie!

    Get it booked. In fact get the whole 5 days in the calender.

  • Did the event in 2018

    It's a tough, challenging marathon. Very technical terrain - choose your footwear carefully. I went with massive cushioning for the rocky downhills 'cause I love those and needed to take advantage of them. Anything minimal will leave you tip-toeing those sections but maybe more sprightly up the climbs. It's a half mile long. Aim to run steady, even laps and save enough for the 3.5 road/trail leg back to HQ if you're running throughout the week - completing the 5 laps can feel like "I'm done" - but the run back can feel a very long way.
  • Did the event in 2017

    I entered this event after completing the Bolton Hill Marathon. Despite an injury I still took part with some thanks to a generous cut off time.It's one marathon a day across 5 days. Complete one, two or all five! The event had a new HQ with loos, changing facilities etc. A canteen with hot drinks and food and free parking. The route was well marked and easy to follow. There were a few marshalls but the main crew was at the feed station at the start of tbe lap. No navigation was imo needed. It was a tough course which got tougher each lap!There was bling with the option to buy a tee. Unfortunately no race photography on the first days of event.A great event that you feel you've accomplished something at the end and you could collect all five medals which join to make one.

  • Did the event in 2018

    Initially signed up for this race as a friend wanted to do it however they ended up dropping out however I still decided to take a trip home for the weekend and run it anyway!
    Drive to Blackpool was smooth however finding somewhere to park was a little interesting.
    When I went to collect my race number there had been an issue with the system when they changed websites however they quickly had me sorted with a new number and I was ready to run. The start was delayed due to traffic issues to make sure runners didn't miss out which was fine however it meant that what was already going to be a hot race was going to get even hotter. There were some pacers dotted about, I was a little disappointed that one didn't turn up for 1h40 even though there was a sign out for one.
    The route itself was run up and down the promenade, a few loops to start with and then straight and back in the other direction until doing the loop once more before finishing. It was a bit mentally draining doing the loops and the sun was very hot however there was very little wind which can always be a problem on the coast and the view was very pretty!
    Overall a great race for such a good price, good for anyone training for a half marathon or local to the area and wants a nice friendly race with a great medal!
  • Did the event in 2018

    After a 3-week holiday of eating and drinking and very little running I guess the last thing I wanted was a 10 mile race the weekend of getting home. But as I am trying to get a race in every month.... needs must.Early drive down to Blackpool and found parking pretty close to the start/registration area. Registration was done on the promenade and was quick and efficient. There had been traffic issues that morning, so the race was delayed whilst the runners were able to arrive. It was a shame about the delay as it was a hot day and only going to get hotter the later we set off.The course was an up down loop kind of affair of Blackpool promenade, was nice to run down the coast line and thankfully it wasn’t too windy (which I believe can be an issue here). It was a fairly easy 10 mile with very little incline. As with a lot of Fylde Coast events it had a team of pacers and we even had race commentary at the half way point and over the finish line.Even early in the day there were a few “characters” about in Blackpool who liked to make comments to runners as they passed, nothing too bad but it did make me aware of who I was running passed. Also towards the end as lunch time approached I was getting very jealous of all the tourists with their finish and chips, I’m sure the smell alone got me to the end!The finish area was very well supported and crossing the line I got my medal, water and a snack. You don’t get loads with Fylde Coast running events but for the price I always find what you get reasonable. They provide some of the best medals out there as well.Following this race, the wife and I made the decision to become FCR members. The events are well run, friendly and very inclusive no matter what your standard.

    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

    A good half marathon. Flat. Decent medal. Easy parking. Lots of water stations. Could do with more loos & some fuel.
  • Did the event in 2018

    I attended the Windmill Half on a bit of a whim and although it was a 3 hour drive away, it was good fun.Very well organised, there’s ample parking and the race pack collection was easy and straightforward.The start was good, there were two announcers on the PA system who kept everyone in good spirits and are a credit to the race.The course itself is really flat, however it is repetitive as effectively there are 2 x 2 loops. Myself and other runners near me really struggled with working out the mileage, at some point our garmin’s were nearly a whole mile out, and my mile 5 and 6 were basically signposted 4 and 5. however the signposts 7 to 8 could’ve have been more than half a mile apart so it eventually evened itself out by mile 9ish.  The finish area was really busy, I was pacing a friend at came in at around the 2 hour mark, however by this point a lot of finishers and spectators were crossing over the route. This would have annoyed me if I was going for a PB. The finishers medal is big and blingy, you receive this along with a freddo and a bottle of water. PROSFlatFast (on a cooler day)FriendlyParkingSupport and marshalls Price CONSRepetitiveLack of toilets (portaloos arrive at 9:30)Mileage signs incorrect Busy finish area

    My 2nd time doing Windmill Half after taking part last year. Resistration was straight forward with numbers collected from Fylde Coast Runners HQ or on raceday itself. Nice atmosphere pre race.A man & woman on the P.A kept runners & spectators entertained.The race itself is fast & flat on a normal day however the high tempratures made conditions difficult. It’s basically 2x small loops & 2x large loops.Mentally it’s quite challenging because you run many of the paths/roads 3 or 4 times. Seeing Mile #7 marker when you’re on mile 2 is slightly off putting but this is only a minor gripe.Support from spectators was very good, some had hose pipes & wet sponges to cool down runner which was very kind. Marshals were generous in their encouragement.Runners were rewarded with a beautiful, chunky meda, water & a small chocolate bar. Maybe an extra food item for finishers, something savoury might be a good idea?IN SUMMARY...HIGHS: Fast, flat & scenic course.LOWS: The loops aren’t to every bodies liking, especially when you see mile markers that clearly aren’t correct.BOTTOM LINE: This race will suit PB chasers. The medal is beautiful.

    Lovely route by the sea. Registration was in a lighthouse and the organisers were very reassuring given that this was my first race. Very good for novices and part of a series so, if you like it, you can repeat it to try and improve your time.

    A great trail race in Wigan, Cheap to enter and a great course. Pie and peas after it paid for by your entrance fee which is also great. Excellent atmosphere and very friendly runners. Will defo do this next year. Well done to all involved.
  • 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

    Just shy of around 400 runners this year for another great value FCR event.The event itself did have some problems, which impacted a number of the front runners due to a sign which was explained as having been blown away by the wind or knocked down, sending some off in the wrong direction.Fortunately I was not affected as it was rectified by the time I got to that point, but I understand some either came in short or ran extra miles.FCR were fantastic on the day though and explained the error over the PA to everyone. You could see how genuinely gutted they were that this had happened, and made a fantastic gesture in assuring everyone they would receive an email the next day explaining the situation once they'd had the race debrief, and a promise of free entry to all for next years race. Registration was easy with quick number pick up on the day.There is a small car park at the start/finish of the event with two further car parks within easy walking distance and plenty of street parking available.The course is a flat one with huge PB potential. I've been struggling to break the Sub 2hr barrier, but managed to knock nearly 5 mins from my previous PB, so was made up with my time.Four water stations which were well stocked.A great medal, Freddo and another bottle of water at the finish line.There was an option to buy an event T Shirt if you wanted.This was my second run at an FCR event and I'll definitely continue to support their events.
  • Did the event in 2018

    It was hammering down with rain on my way to Fleetwood.  It stopped before the race thankfully.  the wind didnt though but thats expected on the coast i suppose.  Parking was easy.  It was a lap around race.  There was some confusion regarding the course with some runners goin the wrong way causing them to do an extra 2 miles.  I was near the back so thankfully it never affected me.  Not much support on the course from the general public but it was a nice event to do and a lovely medal as well.  The problem on the course meant that we get a free entry into next years race which was a nice touch.  Another FCR event.  Well done

    This was 2nd time I have done this race having completed it in 2016.Can't speak highly enough of Fylde Coast running events. This was no exception.Registration, race briefing and number collection were all 1st class.There was a great atmosphere in and around race HQ with merch stalls, food outlets and pre-race massge options available.Race itself was a fast, flat, partial looped run with with bags of potential for PB chasers out there.Support from marshals and Fleetwood public was fantastic.Water stations were plentyfull with bottled water option. Gels weren't on offer but I don't think they are needed for half marathons.Finish line was at was at HQ. The guy on P.A welcoming home the runners was very entertaing and quick witted. It added to what was an already great atmosphere.Finishers were rewarded with a top class medal, chocolate, water and bananna.Entry fee was very low at £18 (affiliated).Great value for such a top event.Post race massage was available at £10. I took up the option. It was worth every penny because they did a brilliant job.In summary, this was a typical Flyde Coast Race - well organised, friendly and great value.

What you need to know about Running Events

Running is the world’s most accessible sport. Park runs, colour runs, 5k, 10k, half marathons, marathons and ultras — all you need is a pair of trainers and off you go.
