Summer 2018 will see Southport Half Marathon return for its 6th and biggest edition to date. We have increased the 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. The route is the only running event in the history of Southport to be permitted to close Lord Street to traffic and allow participants to run through the heart of this famous seaside resort. On the day we will also be running a free family mile event, with medals for all finishers. We’re hoping to make the family mile the biggest event ever and encourage 1000 local children to take part.
