The Vitality Liverpool Half Marathon will look to expand its reach on 13 March with the introduction of a 10 mile race. The exciting addition will represent the city’s only competitive run over the distance, and with more than 5,000 runners competing in the 13.1 mile race last year, will further consolidate the event’s status as the most popular in the north west.
Organised and delivered by BTR Liverpool, this is the second year the half marathon has been part of the Vitality Run Series. Like the half, the 10 mile event has been designed to incorporate many of Liverpool’s most iconic features, including a start and finish area situated on the UNESCO World Heritage Site at Pier Head and along Otterspool Promenade.
So far, uptake in entries has been strong, with the 10 mile distance an attractive proposition for those looking to make the step up to the half marathon while also enjoying the atmosphere of a headline race.
BTR Liverpool race director Alan Rothwell comments: “We are always looking for ways to develop and improve BTR events, so introducing the Liverpool 10 Mile Road Race option to the Vitality Liverpool Half Marathon is the perfect way to do just that.”
“This is the region’s most established race event of this distance, and Liverpool currently doesn’t have a 10 miler – until now. We’ve already had an encouraging response. The ethos of our race portfolio is to encourage and inspire runners. The Liverpool 10 Mile Road Race has excellent potential to grow and further enhance the overall event for future participants.”
Entries for the 10 mile race are priced at £27, or £25 for UK affiliated runners. More information is available here.
