What is the Motorpoint Scouse 5k | 3k!?

Over 3000 curly headed smashers of all ages walk, jog or leg it around our 5k or 3k route. You get a choice of wig colour to wear, there's loads of bands around the course and a glittery medal at the end.

Belter of a medal

We try and make our Motorpoint Scouse 5k medals as colourful and glittery as possible! Here's a pic of the 2019 medal - we'll post the 2023 bling here as soon as it's designed.


This year we're in Sefton Park with more bands than ever and the option of a 5k or 3k! We think there might well be a fair few curly headed smashers on Lark Lane after the event :)

Snazzy Wigs

Everybody gets a choice of wig colour to wear on the day. Colours include Pretty Pink, Kopite Red, Toffee Blue, Classic Black and Wheelie Bin Purple. Some colours are limited so please get yourself signed up if you would like a particular colour. Comedy moustaches and hilarious spectacles are encouraged.
