The Blackpool Half / Marathon is organised by Flyde Coast Running - a specialised events company that likes to organise fast races! The race HQ is at the Hilton with the race taking place on the coastal front of Blackpool. If you're not too sure about a ride on the 'Big One' after the race then you could always enjoy some nice fish 'n' chips along the front instead!
The marathon is two laps of the half marathon course - a quick route with a definate chance of a pb - as long as the wind is behind you!Race Website Add My Race Review
Ran it in 2014. Massage first! Great atmosphere at the start. It was easy to manage as it was in chunks of 3 or 4 miles from the start position. Water only at the stations and toilets limited. Plenty of marshals and support from other runners. Wind against us for the last 4 miles - that was tough! Enjoyed it!
Love it, run it many times.
