Schools Half Marathon Merseyside
Schools Half Marathon Merseyside takes place on Tues 28th April 2020 at Aintree Racecourse.

The event will see hundreds of school pupils run the final 1.1 mile of a cumulative half marathon which they have been working towards at school. The young runners will receive the full race day experience including bibs, music, commentary and a finish line gantry - plus a large, shiny medal and carton of water as they are cheered over the finish line.

Fully inclusive and non-competitive, Schools Half Marathon encourages pupils of all ages and abilities to develop healthy habits to exercise regularly, reduce screen time and build confidence through sport.

Primary schools across Merseyside can take part in this inspiring and potentially life-changing movement.

A legacy programme has been set up where a set amount per participant will be donated to a fund to support athlete development & talent within the region.

Schools Half Marathon is part of Schools Running Movement by UK Run Events.
