The 'Rock n Roll' Liverpool Marathon features live music at every mile, a brilliant medal and a concert at the end of the race for all of the runners. The event also takes place in other major cities around the world including Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Washington DC and San Fransisco.
Both the half and full marathon start and finish in Liverpool city centre. The half heads out towards Princes and Sefton Park before a long 4 mile stretch along the seafront.
The marathon heads north out of the city passing both Everton and Liverpool football grounds before returning to town and joining the half marathon route. Although the majority of the half is relatively flat (apart from the initial climb out of the city centre) the marathon is a little more challenging. Liverpool is a great city to visit but if you're after a pb you may struggle on this course.
