Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon road closures

The third annual Rock ‘n’ Roll Liverpool Marathon Races will start at 9:00am on Sunday May 29 at Albert Dock.

Runners will celebrate the city and it’s culture as they run past iconic landmarks such as the Three Graces, Football stadiums, Matthew Street, Penny Lane, and many other sights before running along the waterfront to reach the finish line at the Echo Arena.

Road Closures shown overleaf will be implemented from Midnight on a rolling basis to allow police and traffic management teams to begin work on the 26-mile
course. Roads will reopen as last runner passes and course materials and traffic management infrastructure is removed.
