The Liverpool Half Marathon Course
The 13.1 mile course has evolved dramatically over recent years with the start and finish moving to the Pier Head area for the first time in 2013.
It is predominantly flat with an incline just after the 1 mile point at Upper Parliament Street of around 3/4 of a mile and then a run through Princes Road turning on Ullet Road just after 3 miles. At Sefton Park runners can enjoy the natural beauty of the park taking in both the external roads and internal park pathways.
A section along Croxteth Drive passing the cricket club and allotments sets runners up for a short stint into Sefton Park again passing the elegant Palm House before crossing the old Iron Bridge heading toward the lake at the bottom end of the park.
After passing through the main park pathway runners loop back around the outside
of the park along a much
welcomed slow decent along
Aigburth Drive to then move
toward Otterspool Park and
the the waterfront promenade.
The promenade section takes in the
Liverpool Marina along the way with
runners following a four mile stretch
back to the finish line,
passing the Liverpool Arena at just after 12 miles. In the last mile runners pass the rear of the Albert Dock,
behind the Tate Liverpool and cross the dock bridge just by the Liverpool Museum at 13 miles.
There are four water stations along the course at approximately 3, 6, 9 and 12 miles as well as the finish and toilets are located at each water station.
