Sat 5th May 2018

10:30am start

Minimum age 11

Our 5k is perfect if you're not quite ready for the 10k or for those who want to do both the 10k and 5k! The event is chip timed, there are bands around the route and finishers are rewarded with a lovely medal and trainning t-shirt.

The 2018 medal is our most glittery yet! It's in the shape of a trophy and has an extra wide base so can stand up on it's own - possibly on your mantle piece :) Click here to see a larger pic.

Our 5k route takes place within Sefton Park. The event starts and finishes at the same place close to the 'Needle' and there are several places around the course for your supporters to watch you whizz (hopefully) past.

Route Map

Here's an interactive map of the course below.

This year there will be more bands than ever around the route including Batala Mersey and Wirral Samba Band

Our charity partner this year is Claire House Children's Hospice. If you would like to raise money for them tick 'yes' when asked when you register and Sophie from Claire House will be in touch and send you your sponsor forms and charity t-shirt.
