Sun 25th May 2014 / Liverpool, Merseyside
Rock n Roll Liverpool MarathonTweet
The Liverpool Marathon is set to return in 2014 on Bank Holiday Sunday 25th May. There will also be a half marathon held on the same day.
The 'Rock n Roll' concept started in 1998 in America and is characterised with live music at every mile and a concert at the end for all of the runners. The event, which has recently been held in Edinburgh and Dublin also takes place in other major cities around the world including Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Washington DC and San Fransisco. Every year over 500,000 people take part in a Rock n Roll event.

Both the half and full marathon start and finish in Liverpool city centre. The half heads out towards Princes and Sefton Park before a long 4 mile stretch along the seafront.
The marathon heads north out of the city passing both Everton and Liverpool football grounds before returning to town and joining the half marathon route. Although the majority of the half is relatively flat (apart from the initial climb out of the city centre) the marathon is a little more challenging. A great city but runners may struggle to get a pb on this course.
