Belter of a medal

We try and make our Scouse 5k medals as colourful and glittery as possible! Here's a pic of the 2019 medal - we'll post the 2020 bling here as soon as it's designed.

Liverpool City Centre Route

What a Liverpool City Centre route! We start on the plateau of the magnificent St. George's Hall before passing many iconic landmarks such as The Metropolian Cathedral, The Bombed Out Church and Primani. The 5k finishes in the heart of the city centre (in front of the big McDonalds).

Snazzy Wigs

Everybody gets a choice of wig colour to wear on the day. Colours include Pretty Pink, Kopite Red, Toffee Blue, Classic Black and Wheelie Bin Purple. Some colours do run out so please get yourself signed up if you would like a particular colour. Comedy moustaches and hilarious spectacles are encouraged.
