Rock N Roll Marathon Half and Full Marathon Has Record Numbers.

The Liverpool Rock ’n’ Roll Marathon attracted more than 20,000 runners to the event this year.

The participants hit the city streets for Sunday’s full and half marathons, a one mile fun run and also for Saturday’s 5K race.

And many international runners joined those from Merseyside who had signed up to pound the streets.

The routes took in Liverpool ’s world famous waterfront, Chinatown, Sefton Park and Merseyside’s two Premier League football grounds.

The half marathon began just after 9am and the full marathon at 10.10am at Salthouse Dock.

It was a lovely hot day for the race, maybe a little to hot for some people.

Rock stars Republica headlined the music on the main stage at 2pm, singing some of the fave hits incl. “Drop Dead Gorgeous” and “Ready to go”.
