Need help with half marathon questions?
If you would like information about the Liverpool Half Marathon but cannot find the answer to your question below, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and a response to your enquiry will be forwarded by return.
Can I defer my entry or request a refund?
No. Once your entry is accepted (save for statutory rights for online payments) it is not possible to transfer / defer entries or arrange entry transfers.
How old do you need to be to enter?
As the race is held under UKA License, the age limit for entries is 17 years on race day.
Can I run for charity?
Yes you can. There is no obligation for you to do so as a condition of entry but you are welcome to fund raise if you wish.
Do I get a medal?
Yes. Everyone who completes the course on the day will receive a medal and a technical T shirt.
Is the course accurate?
Yes it is. As the event is staged under UKA License the course is accurate to 13.1 miles and has a UKA Course Measure Certificate confirming the accuracy of the course.
Is there a limit on entries?
There is a limit of 6,000 for the 2018 event.
What is the closing date for entries?
The closing date for entries is normally two weeks before race date. Entries will remain open for longer if numbers are available.
If entries are available during the last two weeks then the online facility will remain in place. If not it will clearly state ENTRIES CLOSED.
Entries will still be taken during the last two weeks (if available) but NOT posted out due to the inconsistent nature of Royal Mail deliveries.
If you enter during the last two weeks then you can collect your race pack in person from the event office or on race morning.
Is there a cut off time to finish?
Normally there would be a time of 3 hours to complete the course but as the last four miles are off the public highway with runners returning along the promenade, it is not imposed. It should be noted however that the Marina access bridge at approximately 11.5 miles will be in operation from around midday to allow yacht craft out on the river. This may impede you if you have not crossed this location within 3 hours.
