Southport Seaside 10Km Road Race
Sunday 23rd September 2018
The Southport Seaside Road Race will take place on Sunday 23rd September 2018 with a maximum of 2000 runners. The race starts at 10:30 hours in Princes Park, the runners will exit out of the park onto the footpath of Esplanade before heading along the Promenade, under the pier and along the rear of the Southport Convention Centre. The route then returns to the Promenade and runners head north onto the cycle lane on fairway before heading down Marine Drive and across Princes Park before completing a second lap.
To protect the runners Marine Drive will be closed from the roundabout at the top of the slip road to the beach to the rear of Pleasureland to the junction with Fairway, and the cycle track alongside Fairway. It is expected that Marine Drive will be closed from 10:00 hours until 12:30 and the Fairway cycle track will be closed during the same hours. As runners exit the sections of closed road the affected roads will be re-opened.
"Effect On Club Members"
Provided you arrive at WLYC before 10:00 am you will still be able to participate in the planned sailing / racing that morning.
Our Club is located on the Marine Lake at Southport which provides safe sailing waters for sailors of all abilities. We are a family orientated Club and have a variety of sailing and social activities throughout the year. Our Clubhouse has accessible facilities.
The Club is proud to be recognised as a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) Training Establishment and as a Champion Club for our support of Junior and Youth Sailing. We offer a ‘learn to sail’ course for the complete beginner and skills development courses for more experienced sailors. These courses are available to both members and non-members.
For those wishing to race we have a regular Club racing from March to October.
We also sail on the sea at Ainsdale during the summer months.
We have a growing number of Club members who sail and race radio-controlled boats throughout the year.
Some of our members have offshore boats which are berthed in locations far and wide.
