LIVERBIRD New Years EVE & New Years DAY

Liverbird Double Marathon

The return of the New Years Eve and New Years Day Liverbird Double Race. Runners start by the River Mersey for this unique race.  Seeing out 2023 and welcoming in 2024 with options of marathon, half-marathon, 10km or 5km!

The marathon course follows the River Mersey for 3 miles before returning to the start point and repeating the lap a further 3 times (4 in total) to complete the route.  Half marathon runners need to complete the route 2 times, and the 10k and 5k runners once to their dedicated turn point which is marshalled.  

Ideal for both the seasoned marathon runner and those new to the sport looking for a personal best on the distance and also a great introduction into back to back long distance running suitable for ultrarunners.  Measured course.  Trail Running Association 2023/2024 permit pending.
