Vitality Liverpool Half Marathon - Sun 13th March 2016
The Vitality Liverpool Half Marathon is organised by BTR who organise other successful races such as the Port Sunlight 10k in May and the
Tunnel 10k in June. The start and finish has been moved to a World Heritage Site and now the Liver Birds overlook proceedings. I'm a little
biased as I'm from Liverpool but this is a great race in a fabulous city!
Fantastic course, I loved how spectators came out to support us running and even hand out food for energy and water
for hydration, the atmosphere was absolutely amazing, there were stunning views of penarth and running through the bay,
Roath lake was lovely to run past too, only let down was the hill at the 12 mile mark, other than that it was brilliant.

Another brilliant race. From a club runner's point of view, 'Club Corner' meant that runners from a number of clubs had somewhere to gather -
a great idea. As always, well organised and friendly with lots of great support along the route. Plenty of drink stations with lots of toilets - saw very little in the way of queuing. Race Angels were particularly supportive as I came into the city at the end of the race. Great facilities once runners had finished, with food options and clothing sales. Slight niggle was one pacer who was quite ahead of schedule and really seemed to demoralise runners he passed. He stopped at about 24 miles to cheer people in,
but he knew he was going too fast and kept on saying so. Really difficult to pace such a long event, I guess.
