Location and Route

Race Registration

Race registration is at Leasowe Lighthouse (red marker on map below) and begins 1 hour before the race start time.

Please see the race day information page for details about travel, registration and facilities.

Race Course

The race start (point A on map below) is a little further back down Lingham Lane from the lighthouse. The route then runs past the lighthouse, cuts right towards the coast, the turns right again to double back on itself and runs along the sea front until the finish on King’s Parade (point B on map below).

The race itself is an officially measured 5K. It is run almost entirely on the concrete sea embankment with a short section of rough track in the middle. There is usually a good wind from behind but we can’t guarantee that for any race!
