The coastal location for this race means the course is pretty flat, but subject to coastal weather.  In 2012 a strong head wind along the prom from miles 7 to 10 cost me about 1 minute.  

The race was well organised, starting from the leisure centre. There was a timing clock at the end and results were out the same day - very efficient.  For post-race refreshments, there is a reasonably priced cafe with chairs and tables outside just about 200m south of the leisure centre.  They did bacon butties, suasages etc and tea, coffee.  Very nice.  The presentation was quite a long time after the race, by which time I think most folk had gone home.  1 prize per veteran category.  Those who have done both reckon that Blackpool is a bit faster.  

Plenty of loos and parking.

Mr Schofield's clock at the end is a nice touch
