With the successful delivery of the 1st Wirral Half Marathon and 10K there has been a marked increase in entries for the Liverpool Half Marathon to be held on 23rd March. The 2014 event will be the 21st running of this popular event which dates back to 1994.
Entries will be limited to 9,000 and with the recent surge in interest the first 2,000 have almost gone.
The start and finish of the race is at the Pier Head and the new location introduced this year led to a massive increase in spectator support – so expect a massive cheer as you approach the fine line on Liverpool’s World Heritage Site.
The course takes runners out of the city from Canada Boulevard and Mann Island past the Anglican Cathedral and Parliament Street (the only real hill in the race) up to Sefton Park. Once through the scenic part of the course around the park, runners head through Otterspool Park to then turn back toward the city at Otterspool Promenade.
The last four miles are perfectly flat following the promenade alongside the famous River Mersey.
Passing through the Liverpool Marina then past the Liverpool Arena, runners come alongside the Albert Dock and Liverpool Museum before hitting a wall of sound at the finish area right under the gaze of the Liver Birds.
