This outstanding course takes a scenic tour of Liverpool city centre. Start at the Albert Dock on Liverpool’s Waterfront before heading off towards Penny Lane and the World Famous home of The Beatles – The Cavern Club.
Music every mile makes up the heart and soul of this event. Live bands and DJs will be playing a variety of music from alternative to classic rock, punk, funk and blues to jazz it up. The bands set the tempo for the course, where runners and spectators alike will be dancing in the streets to these mini-concerts. All runners and spectators are treated to a concert at the Finish Line Festival.
