Liverpool’s famous music heritage is celebrated on a flat but scenic course, taking in the city centre, waterfront and other landmarks. Live bands, cheer teams and ‘high-energy volunteers’ line the streets to power you home, concluding with a headliner concert.


Highly Commended– Virgin Money London Marathon

“The London Marathon was one of the best days of my life. All that hard training through winter just faded to nothing in the electric atmosphere, music and crowds lining the streets. I managed to see all my family and friends around the course, the sun shone and I smiled the whole way round.” – Carol Penny


Commended– ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon

“Manchester Marathon was my first marathon and, on my return last year, I achieved my GFA, so it will always be very special to me. In 2017, it lived up to its tag line, ‘fast, flat and friendly’. There was space to run at your own pace and the camaraderie among runners was brilliant.” – Claire Price
