Run Aintree 5k, 10k & Half
Kickstart your Christmas period and join us for a unique opportunity to run a 5k, 10k or Half Marathon at the World famous Aintree Racecourse, best known for annually holding the Grand National steeplechase.
The race involves laps around the circuit, and the course is flat and quick. There will be 1 lap for the 5k, 2 laps for the 10k and 4 laps for the Half Marathon. The entire course is inside the Aintree Racecourse, on the roads/paths not on grass.
Each mile will be accurately marked out and we have plenty of helpers to keep you quite literally on track and encourage you on your way to that chequered flag finish. Come and enjoy the day with us; we hope to see you there!
