Southport Seaside 10Km Road Race
Sunday 23rd September 2018
Because of the Southport Seaside 10km run on Sun 23 Sep, Marine Drive will be closed from 10:00 until 12:30 that morning. The OoD is still planning to arrange the scheduled racing; however, he has requested that those intending to race sign on by 09:50.
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.
During British Summer Time (BST), civil time in the United Kingdom is advanced one hour forward of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) (in effect, changing the time zone from UTC+0 to UTC+1), so that evenings have more daylight and mornings have less.
BST begins at 01:00 GMT on the last Sunday of March and ends at 01:00 GMT (02:00 BST) on the last Sunday of October. Since 22 October 1995 the times of commencement and cessation of daylight saving time across the European Union have been aligned – for instance Central European Summer Time begins and ends on the same Sundays at exactly the same time (that is, 02:00 CET, which is 01:00 GMT). Between 1972 and 1995, BST began and ended at 02:00 GMT on the third Sunday in March (or second Sunday when Easter fell on the third) and fourth Sunday in October.
