AS WE NEAR THE END OF 2019 IT'S NEARLY TIME TO WELCOME IN 2020 AND A BRAND NEW SET OF BTR RACE EVENTS AND FUN RUNS.
The new year kicks off with the longest established road race in the city - the Liverpool Half Marathon on Sunday 15th March. So if you are in training for London and want to use it as part of your training plan then make a date in your diary and join us on the waterfront and Liverpool's famous UNESCO World Heritage site!
Don't forget there is also an alternative 10 mile race on the same day - so if you are looking to step up from 10K then here is a great opportunity to take on a classic race distance.
THE LIVERPOOL SKYLINE HALF MARATHON / 10 MILER, SUNDAY 15TH MARCH.
There a some slight changes to the event structure in 2020 with the Whistle Stop Tour reverting to two separate races. The very popular (and challenging) 8 mile race will now be hosted as an event in it's own right and the Wirral Half Marathon will revert to a 10 mile race but still retain the 10K.
All the usual favourites are still there - the Tunnel 10K, Port Sunlight 10K and 5K (including the dual race option for medal chasers!) and the massively popular Tour Of Merseyside which is a series of six races over seven days.
Challenging and rewarding in equal measure. The post event celebrations are now the stuff of legends...
There is also the Run For The 96/5K which remembers those who lost their lives at Hillsborough in 1989 and a new initiative introduced by Everton In The Community - the If You Know Your History 5K.
The Santa Dash rounds off the year with a whole lot of fun and excitement and concludes what is always a busy year of running, racing for BTR.
All event dates are listed above.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous
