Liverpool Half Marathon

Add my race review


The Liverpool half marathon is organised by BTR who organise other successful races such as the Port Sunlight 10k in May and the Tunnel 10k in June. The start and finish has been moved to a World Heritage Site and now the Liver Birds overlook proceedings. I'm a little biased as I'm from Liverpool but this is a great race in a fabulous city!

The Course

A predominanly flat course where you could definitely get that pb. The only incline occurs as you run up Upper Parliament Street early on at around the 1 mile mark. From there runners make their way around the magnificent Victorian Sefton Park before reaching the prom and a pancake flat four miles to the finish - you'll fly as long as the wind is behind you.

Rachel Rick (2013 race)

Have run this twice - 2011 and 2013 and really enjoyed it both times. Lots of support all the way round. I quite like Sefton Park, although I know not everyone does. Already booked on 2014

Matthew Davies (2011 race)

I did this race back in 2011 - it's a fast course (with the exception of Upper Parliament Street). It now finishes in front of the Liver Buildings - a massive event with over 8000 runners! Brilliant race :)
