The Route

What a Liverpool City Centre route! Our flat course passes many landmarks such as St. George's Hall, The Metropolian Cathedral, The Cavern, Liverpool Town Hall and Maggie Mays (who do a very nice bowl of scouse :))

The Wigs

Everybody gets a choice of wig colour to wear one the day. Colours include Pretty Pink, Kopite Red, Toffee Blue, Classic Black and Clatterbridge Green. This year we also have White, Orange, Purple and Multi-Coloured (yes I couldn't think of names for these).

The Medal

We're very proud of this years' colurful medal which features St. George's Hall, The Metropolitan Cathedral and Liverpool Town Hall. The pic is of a sample - the finished one will come with a lovely ribbon so you can wear it with pride after the run.

Oldies £20 and under 15's just £10. Numbers posted out 2-3 weeks before the big day and wigs picked up in the morning.
