What you need to know about Running

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. Running events are hugely popular on Let’s Do This and it’s a sociable sport, so get some friends involved and achieve something extraordinary.

If you’re starting small, the 5k and 10k events are great fun and definitely worth doing even if you’re training for a bigger challenge further down the line. Getting used to the atmosphere of an event is important. You’re so much more likely to hit a better time if there’s a crowd cheering you on, people in fancy dress and a big celebration at the finish line.

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.
