THE NEXT RACE
27TH MARCH 2019
6.30 pm START
As a result of increasing numbers and the pressure on the registration desk we shall close entries 10 minutes before the race start i.e. 6.50 p.m. Please make sure you have registered before this time to ensure you are eligible to run.
Photographs – Just a quick note to all Seaside Runners, that there a number of people who take photographs at our event.
Photographs are by far and away the most popular posts on Facebook, they are eagerly awaited by most runners, and appear on other social media and on our website
Mark also take photos of winners etc, and we have recently had a request for a drone to follow the run, it will be great to see the action in video. We welcome all these records as part of the event, however if you have any objections can you please let us know beforehand.
Unfortunately, we shall have to increase the entry fee for our races in 2019. The rise is due to the introduction of chip timing and online entry and results. The entry fee will rise from £4 to £5 for club runners and from £6 to £7 for non-club runners. Mark and I were reluctant to increase the entry fee but we feel that it is the only way of managing the increasing popularity of the races. We still feel the races are excellent value for money.
In 2017 we introduced more prizes for competitors and also a league for the six races, with prizes for some age categories.
Wirral Seaside Runs is a series of six races of 5 km, organised by Pensby Runners. The runs are held monthly from March to August each year. All races are online entry only and numbers can be collected on the day from Leasowe Lighthouse. There is ample free parking available.
The Seaside race start is from near Leasowe Lighthouse, Moreton, along the sea embankment to finish at Harrison Drive just past the Derby Pool pub and near to Wallasey Village. While most run back to the car park at the start you will need to arrange transport at the finish otherwise. It is a flat and fast course and provides a regular indicator of fitness and performance. The races are very popular with club runners and also beginners and joggers and have become a permanent fixture on the running scene of Merseyside over the last 30 years. Although there is no formal cut off time it is expected that new ‘seasiders’ will aim to complete the three miles within 45 minutes.
