Fun runners

This year, we hope for a partial return to fundraising normality. Here are some of the public races and events known to be taking place COVID-safely in 2021 which you can participate in, in aid of The Brain Charity.

Liverpool Half Marathon • September 12

This run starts and ends at Pier Head on the waterfront in front of the Liver Building, and takes in landmarks including the Albert Dock, the Liverpool Museum, and Liverpool ONE.

Liverpool Chester Liverpool Bike Ride 2021 • July 4

The 28th anniversary of the iconic annual Liverpool Chester Liverpool Bike Ride includes 8 different cycling route options suitable for all ages and abilities, covering 5 miles for families with children and beginners, to 100 miles for serious cyclists. It’s a great experience to cross the Mersey through the Queensway tunnel traffic free, before cycling across stunning landscapes in the Wirral and Chester.

Royal Parks Half Marathon • April 11 and October 10

The team behind the Royal Parks Half Marathon, a half marathon around some of London’s most iconic parks, are planning to split the event into two runs this year. Final decisions will be made in February, but at the moment they believe April’s event will be able to go ahead. If it doesn’t, all places will be rolled over to the October 2021 race.

Three Peaks Challenge • Anytime

As of December 2 2020, all Three Peaks Challenge events are taking place again, as long as all government advice is followed. If you fancy climbing the three highest mountains in England, Wales and Scotland, you can organise your own socially distanced walk or take part with your own bubble.
