    About the event
    From the organiser

    Hell of a Hill Marathon is arguably the toughest 26.2 miles in the UK, and the toughest 5 consecutive marathons in 5 days in the World - only the toughest dare to challenge the Hill for 5 consecutive days! The mighty Rivington Pike stands 1,191ft tall on the West Pennine Moors, and runners have to pass over the summit a massive 40 times to complete the challenge of a lifetime. A total of 30,000ft of elevation gain (Mount Everest!) and 131 miles of tough stone and mud trail running in the cold Winter months!.

      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.

      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.

      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.

    About the event

    Run through the streets of Liverpool in races ranging from 1 mile to the marathon. Perfect for runners of all levels, with a few hills and a pleasant run along the river foreshore. Come to soak up some Beatles nostalgia in the home of rock 'n' roll.

      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!

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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!
