Eber-so if thats the Half ,is the Marathon twice that? Never done a lap type marathon and if it is , I cant see that beating the 2012 route

Use the drop down above the map to select the full course, goes out to the north first.

Eber-thanks-Think I prefer the 2012 route

It doesn't look that far on a map like that !

Looks like a right dogs dinner of a course.

YD-the northern section looks pretty dull just to bring in the football stadia but then again chunks of the NY marathon were uninspiring eg the warehouse areas og Brooklyn

I think it should be a good enough course - bearing in mind Liverpool is a small city of course. It does give a good representation of the overall feel of the city. South Liverpool is really nice and I run regularly along the Otterspool prom when visiting the in-laws - in fact their house is not far from the route...

danrees- yes the southern bit is good's pretty much the the regular HM route..good atmosphere And is pretty fast . Coincidence your name is the same as mine.

Yay, should be a good one!! I did Rock & Roll Dublin this year (half mara) and was great fun.  Brilliant atmosphere and I expect there will be quite a few international (especially North American) entries as it is a US events company who organise it.  It'll be my 4th marathon of 2014 so not looking to get a decent time, basically enjoy it and see it as a 26 mile dance-a-thon  

Went to Liverpool back in 2008 but that was before my running days so will be good to run it.

Ive signed up for the half.

Does anyone know of any cheap hotels near the start and the best train station.

Im going to travel down from Glasgow

I'm in!  Also paid for my son's entry as his birthday present - it will be his first.


5 weeks after Boston for me so should have recovered sufficiently

Jinty - Liverpool is tiny and the start is very central by the Albert Docks so anywhere in "Central Liverpool" will be fine. Don't know any cheap hotels as always stay with the mother in law! For trains everything other than Merseyrail local services go into Lime Street anyway - you will presumably need to change at Crewe, Wigan or similar to pick up from the West Coast line.

Thanks Danrees, Ive now booked the hotel down at the docks so should be near the start/finish. Still to sort out my travel, thanks for the info

Entered the full marathon last week. Training now for it, the route looks ok, the start at the docks will be fantastic, I think its the same area where they start the btr 1/2 marathon. The training is hurting but cant wait to finish my first full marathon!

I dunno, I ran one of their races and the organisation was so appalling I felt compelled to email them after. When I spoke to others about it who'd run some of theiry races before it turned out to be the same every time. Symbolic. Maybe in the US they're better, the UK branch is pitiful. I wouldn't give them a penny.

06/03/2014 at 21:47

Shambolic, not symbolic...but then again...

10/03/2014 at 13:40

Thats surprising, I've been speaking with them via their Facebook page and the organisation for this year is excellent. They have been doing free training runs every Sunday encompassing different sections of the marathon course. I cant complain but I guess the proof is in the pudding.

Surprises me also.

I ran Edinburgh R&R Half in 2012 and organisation was awesome

01/04/2014 at 22:38

Some people want it to be a disaster imo.

I can't wait to run my first marathon.
Although I was disappointed they cancelled Edinburgh as I had also entered that.
