25 extra Tour of Merseyside places available now
Organisers have announced that a limited number of extra places are available for the much-loved Tour of Merseyside
Following on last week's announcement that the 4-race Tour of Tameside had fixed a late June schedule, comes more good news for North West runners who enjoy their racing in a serial format. The much-loved 6-stage Tour of Merseyside is releasing extra places for its 2021 odyssey.
Highlights of the Tour are Southport Half Marathon, the multi-terrain race at Thurstaston and the 12-mile finale at the Wirral Coastal Run.
The Tour of Merseyside is always a sell-out with demand outstripping available places
However a unique set of circumstances brought about by the pandemic has meant that an additional 25 places are now up for grabs.
BTR's Alan Rothwell told runABC North: "The Tour of Merseyside is a real highlight of our year. The intensity of 6 races over a week – the competition among the faster runners at the head of the leaderboard, the determination of all to complete the events one by one and the amazing camaraderie makes the Tour unique."
Alan continued: "Tour places are like gold dust so it's good to be able to offer these extra slots. But you’ll need to hurry, we expect these places to be snapped up quickly."
