Liverpool Rock & Roll 5k, Half Marathon & 1 mile
Report by Karen Lennox
Last weekend saw 25 Ripon Runners head to Liverpool for a number of races. This is a really well organised set of races with fantastic bling, t-shirts and a pint of beer at the end. There is a fantastic party atmosphere, bands playing every mile and “Toploader” headlining at the afterparty. A reasonably flat course with lots to see the whole way round, the last 3 miles were a little tedious along the water front that felt never ending with a headwind the whole way.
There has been some superb running across the board and fantastic PBs for the half Marathon.
The 11 Crazies took the opportunity to dress up for the 5k on the Saturday and run together as Candy Canes in keeping with 2019 theme. They were caught by the cameraman at 4K and footage of them is now included in the official video advertisement for 2019/2020.
Sunday saw 5 runners take part in the Full Marathon, 20 runners take part in the Half Marathon & 14 runners take part in the 1 Mile. Definitely an fantastic weekend was had that 16 runners have now booked to return in 2020.
