Southport 10k 2017

Summer 2017 will see Southport Half Marathon return for its 5th and biggest edition to date – we continue with the 2 new distances of 10k and 1 Mile and have increased capacity and increased the entertainment and music on the traffic free route which includes Lord Street in Southport town centre and a start/finish area with live music and entertainment in Victoria Park which will be exclusive to competitors and spectators – for venue details click here The route is the only running event in the history of Southport to be permitted to close Lord Street to traffic and allow 1000s of participants to run through the heart of this famous seaside resort! The 10k and Half Marathon routes will start in Victoria Park as in previous years but will now head into town and along the famous Lord Street (a Victorian canopied boulevard edged in gardens), passing the Monument, War Memorial and Town Hall before the 10k turns left towards the Lake and the Half Marathon runners head North for a quick trip around Hesketh Park, passed the Golf Club and return to the coast before heading south towards the Marine Lake, then along Promenade and under the Pier, through Kings Gardens, around the Marine Lake and back to the coast via the lakeside pathway before heading south again and returning for a Finish in Victoria Park. Both routes are very flat, fast and traffic free with lots of PB potential! The 1 mile fun run will take place within Victoria Park. Car Parking will be available at Esplanade Car Park at the Eco Centre from 0700hrs with the event due to commence at 0900hrs
