Organisers of the Vitality Liverpool Half Marathon have announced footwear, apparel and accessories specialist Brooks as an official race partner. The event, a cornerstone of the BTR Liverpool portfolio, celebrated its 21st anniversary last year and saw almost 7,000 runners take part.
This year’s race is scheduled for Sunday 29 March and a similar turnout is expected. Participants so far include runners from Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Norway, Spain and Sweden, as well as a number of runners travelling from further afield, representing Hong Kong and the USA.
The Vitality Liverpool Half Marathon will start and finish at the city’s Pier Head at the iconic Liverpool Waterfront, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The route will also take runners past some of the city’s key landmarks including Albert Dock, Museum Of Liverpool, Liverpool Cathedral, Sefton Park Palm House and Otterspool Promenade
On the partnership, BTR Liverpool race director Alan Rothwell commented: “To have Brooks on board as a race partner for this year’s Liverpool Half Marathon is fantastic news. The event is firmly established in the region’s race calendar and attracts a large contingent of runners who travel from across the world to take part.”
The Vitality Liverpool Half Marathon is the second event in the BTR Liverpool portfolio, following the Port Sunlight 10K / 5K on 1 March. For more information on the race, visit the event website here.
