9.00am Start, Pier Head
Well firstly a massive thank you to all those that took part in the Liverpool Skyline Half Marathon and 10 Mile Road Race under very difficult circumstances this year. I thought we had a lot to deal with last year with the 50mph winds but the health alert this year has been something else again.
In addition... and I can't thank them enough... are the volunteers and event supporters who helped out on the day -
Penny Lane Striders
BTR Road Runners
Merseyside Army Cadet Team
Origins Sports Team
Arriva North West
Fans Supporting Foodbanks
Members of the Merseyside Running Community
With the backdrop of the Corona virus I think we may well have been the last mass participation event for the foreseeable future but as always we will be governed by the very best medical advice with the health and safety of all participants very much in mind.
Stay healthy and keep safe!

WALTER FROM BELGIUM
As I am back home from the Liverpool trip including your BTR Half Marathon and the game at Anfield, I have to thank you for the perfect organized run, brilliant service and all the time and caring for us runners.Yes the wind made those last 4 miles very difficult and slowed me down quite a lot. 1h50’ for the 13 miles, a quick change of clothes, grabbed a cap, dropped our bags near the ground and sat down on our seat 1 minute before the kick-off…
Best city in the word, kindest people you ‘ll ever find.

Hi Yvonne & gang,
Just a quick email to say what a great event run by you guys again this year. This was our second year to take part in the half marathon and despite the weather it was amazing. Last year was our first year and we thought it was fantastic couldn’t wait to book again for this year and you didn’t disappoint. Rectifying the course was great too see too & for us it didn’t put us off last year (these things happen) & let me tell you the horrendous wind along the pier won’t put us off next year either! Up to last year we done the Vitality London half marathon starting at Wembley and crossing into Wembley but can I just say from our point of view as over sea’s participants that half marathon has not a patch on the Liverpool even with running back into Wembley. The outer course of London is boring and not appealing at all however Liverpool is just stunning, the parks the pier it’s just stunning. Actually makes running so much more enjoyable and worthwhile. I can honestly say that from running here in Ireland and the UK. You all do such a great job and again despite the weather everyone on the course, Marshall’s, pacers, organisers etc all were so welcoming and smiling and helpful to all of us runners.
Great job and already looking forward to next year.
I hope you all got a good rest and a warm beverage on Sunday!!!
Great new route. Enjoyed the change to the first mile where there is a gradual climb up to the Upper Parliament Street incline. I think it helped mentally as you could anticipate it better rather than hitting it with a left turn as before. The stretch through Princes Park was good. I think the course has become faster. The Weather was tough especially along ottesrpool prom. Admired my fellow runners for digging deep. I was proud to be part of this great event. Well done to Alan for another superb race.
