So you fancy tackling the debut Run Liverpool Marathon on 9 October? It’s just a walk in the park to you, right? Well, yeah, there’s the park, but then there’s the seafront, the tunnel, the city centre, the other park, the other, other park, and the waterfront… they don’t call it The Long And Winding Road Race for nothing you know. Although you may prefer to know it as Help!

The  Marathon’s 26.2 miles actually takes in both sides of the River Mersey with a route taking in some of our region’s best sights. Although we doubt you’ll have much time to take that in. So how about we show you a little video we took when we ran it this morning. We did it in three minutes. But then, we haven’t really started training seriously yet.
