Ellesmere Port RC 5k Road Race in memory of Neil Lavery
Wednesday 21st August 2019
Very nice course, unexpectedly rural, great to have a time chip, excellent and very friendly marshalling. As I managed a season’s PB and over 85% against world standards, this proves what a good course it is. You might consider publishing that stat for each runner if you can figure out the calculation – parkrun do it of course. I’m sure that you are a PB magnet.
Event was great by the way – I enjoyed it – fantastic atmosphere and people
Well marshalled race thru South Wirral country roads. Very fast finish; only slow part of course is the 200m stretch on the A540. The organisers running out of safety pins for race numbers is about as big a complaint as I can make which says it all really
My only criticism is that the finish line should be a bit wider to accommodate sprint finishers who may be racing each other. However, an otherwise perfect race, nice scenery, well organised and completely flat.
Enjoyed the race, a good turnout too with all standards, fast pace so definite pb potential. A good benchmark for me as there are lots of races here and it’s very close to home. maybe a little pricey for such a short race with no gift.
Well organised race, very well marshalled and they gave lots of encouragement along the route. Good turn out too, just right for a midweek race. Looking forward to next years.
