Liverpool Spring 10k 2015 - Sunday 3rd May

The 2015 Liverpool Spring 10k will take place on Bank Holiday Weekend, Sunday 3rd May at Sefton Park (10:30am start). You are welcome to take part whatever your ability. Last year lots of people took part who had never done a race before. This year we're hoping for even more newbies. In 2015 there will be more bands, more face painting, more bunting and more balloons given out! It costs £20 to enter the race. If you would like to get your place now please click here.

Will I get a t-shirt?

All runners will get a quality technical t-shirt, a bespoke shiny medal and a goody bag after the race. There will also be free post-race massages available, free face paints for the kids and lots of helium balloons given away. The race is chip timed and has a UKA license. There is lots of entertainment around the course and a very enthusiastic commentator at the start and finish line (likely to lose his voice towards the end)!
