Southport Seaside 10K 2023 -Postponed until 2024
We are sorry to inform you that we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the Southport Seaside 10K 2023 which happens every September.
Unusually this year, all available Sundays in September had big events taking place and so we agreed we could work around the Southport Classic & Speed Car Show which is on the Saturday and Sunday of the same weekend.
After much discussion and receiving further details, we have sadly come to the decision that the complexities around the Southport Classic & Speed Car Show gives us concerns that your race day experience would be compromised. Add to this building works on the route plus ongoing pier restoration and we conclude it would be best for everyone to postpone until 2024.
We look forward to returning in September 2024!
The route will be a similar version of the 2 lap route used for the past 3 years. We are delighted to now have our Race HQ at the newly refurbished Pleasureland and the second lap of the race passes through Pleasureland to add to the fun!
We will once again be offering Pleasureland discounted ride and this will be launched at a later day via an email to all entrants.
