Southport Seaside 10K Changes Hands

Southport Seaside 10K

Run North West has confirmed that the popular Southport Seaside 10K will be under their control for 2018. Previously called the Natterjack Seaside 10K, the event will supplement Run North West’s impressive portfolio, which already includes the Alderley Edge and Wilmslow 10Ks. 

The event, scheduled for Sunday 23 September, will start and finish in Princess Park, Southport. Flat and fast with gentle undulation, the course incorporates Southport Pier, takes in the Marine Lake, plus the Ocean Plaza and Southport Model Railway.

A recent post on Run North West’s website expressed gratitude to the previous organiser: “After many years of running the highly popular Southport Seaside 10K, Darrell Soden has decided to pass this event on to Run North West.”

“On behalf of the wider community we would like to thank Darrell for all his hard work and commitment and say that we are very excited to be given the opportunity to work with this great race.”

With the Southport race joining the Alderley Edge Bypass and Wilmslow events to make a trio of 10ks, Run North West is offering reduced price entry for anyone entering all three. Prospective participants can register for all of the races for just £45 (£39 affiliated) until mid-January.
