Run North West is delighted to present the return of the Southport Seaside 10k, starting and finishing in Princess Park, Southport. Marine Drive will once again be fully closed to runners on the day, which makes for a much more runner friendly route with beautiful views across Southport Beach. The remainder of the course will be ran around Marine Lake over 10k starting and finishing in Princess Park, Southport. The two lap course is ran 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 Britain’s oldest iron pier but the second longest. The pier itself is a hub of activities, with a retro arcade to enjoy post race as well as taking in spectacular views across the Marine Lake and beach. The route runs around the Marine Lake, taking in the Theatre and Convention Centre, Marine Lake Promenade, Ocean Plaza and Southport Model Railway. This years event will proudly support the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation the only UK charity to focus solely on lung cancer care.
