The Ramada hotel is probably the best located hotel in relation to the parking and the course route. They are also right opposite the Victoria Pub ! They are able to offer a Bed & Breakfast rate of £80 for 1 person or £90 for 2 people (in the same room) to stay over for one night in one of their standard rooms  Your stay can either be the night before or the night of the race day (late checkouts can also be prearranged at extra cost for anyone wanting to come back after the race and freshen up.)    They  provide a great base for runners. You can get up in the morning and have a hearty breakfast loading up on the carbs including Porridge, Cereals or Full English for the stronger stomachs!!  before walking/running or utilising the Mad Dog transport down to the start leaving your cars in the complimentary car park. You need to mention you are with the Mad Dog event when booking RAMADA marine Lake, Promenade, Southport PR9 0DZ. T:  01704 516220
NOTE  The RAMADA is due  to change it’s name  in late 2018  to Bliss Hotel
