The 2015 Women’s Running 10K Race Series is now finished. Please click here to see information on the 2016 race series.
The race will take place at the picturesque Sefton Park, Liverpool, Merseyside L17 1AF on 19 July at 10am.
One of the most picturesque parks in the North West, our Sefton Park race offers stunning scenery across 235 acres of lush green parkland.
Promising a fun, friendly and supportive atmosphere, it is a fantastic North Western race and a fantastic location for bringing family along to support and enjoy a fun day out.
“It was a lovely day,” said Helen Simpson, a runner from our 2014 Sefton Park race, “the race had a friendly atmosphere and great support.”
A gentle two-lap course, the race features beautiful scenery including a lovely lake and fantastic landmarks including the Grade II listed Shaftesbury memorial and Eros fountain.
The 5K option, in association with This Girl Can, is the perfect race for beginners – a flat, one-lap route, it is ideal for those running in their first mass-participated event.
The warm-up will be lead by Dame Kelly Holmes Trust athlete mentor and Everything But The Cow ambassador Amy Hughes. A world-record holder, Amy has run 53 marathons in 53 days to raise money for the Isabelle Lottie Foundation. The 26-year-old from Oswestry is a true inspiration to all women looking to test themselves. Amy will get you fired up for the race with a dynamic warm-up, leaving you feeling supple, revved up and ready to go.
All entrants will receive a free goody bag, filled with quality kit and nutritional goods and finishers will receive an event t-shirt and medal for their achievements.
A range of pacers will also be there on the day, covering 50 minutes, 55 minutes, 60 minutes and 70 minutes to help you to achieve your goals. You can meet the pacers here.
Running for Alzheimer’s Society
This year, our leading charity race partner is Alzheimer’s Society. Many people know someone affected by dementia. The society reveals that 850,000 people in the UK will have a form of dementia by 2015 and in less than ten years, this will grow to over a million people. Working to find a cure for this debilitating disease but also to support those living with the condition, the society relies on charity funding to make this happen and we’re absolutely thrilled to be able to help raise funds for the charity through the Series.
The Wray Ladies Running Club, founded by WR contributor and GP Juliet McGrattan, will be running in both the 10K and 5K races. For some of the Wray ladies, this will be their first ever running event, and they have been working hard to prepare for the challenge. Found out have they have been getting on with their training here.
