Organiser's Description

We are excited to be returning to the the World famous Aintree Racecourse, best known for annually holding the Grand National steeplechase. Join us for a unique opportunity to run a 5k, 10k or Half Marathon.

The race involves laps around the circuit, and the course is flat and quick. The entire course is inside the Aintree racecourse on the roads and 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!
