Southport Torchlight 5K News Report
By Guest Writer Nicola
After two successful races, the third and final Torchlight Tip 5k of this season will be held on Wednesday 23rd February, 7:00pm start.
With the Winter months bringing short days there is little in the way of evening races to attend and the Torchlight Tip 5k gives participants a chance to experience something different.
It takes a special type of dedication to venture out into the dark nights with the wild weather upon us to compete in a race like this, but the Torchlight Tip 5k has attracted both experienced and first time runners alike and has proved a success with many returning to attempt to beat their previous times.
The course marked out with glowsticks, and runners donning their head torches certainly makes spectating and participating an illuminated affair! With the previous two races attracting impressive fields of growing numbers the final race in the series should be an exciting one.
Many thanks have to be extended to race organiser Andrew Hudson along with the people who volunteered to marshall the event, making sure everyone gets round the course safely. Special thanks go out to those who have given their time to make this event possible and we hope to see them return in the future.
