Event details

Mersey Tunnel 10k

The Mersey Tunnel 10k will take place on Sunday 14th April 2024.

The race starts just yards from the emergency Tunnel exit road on Bevington Bush on the Liverpool side of the River Mersey and drops directly down on to the main approach road to deliver a fast descent into the Kingsway (Wallasey) Tunnel.

Opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1971, the Wallasey Tunnel is still affectionately known locally as the 'new Tunnel' and compared to the Birkenhead (Queensway) Tunnel opened by the King George V on 18th July 1934 it clearly is!

The Tunnel takes runners on a journey of just over 3K before exiting on the Wirral side of the river before the course makes it's way along the Dock Road and the Seacombe Ferry terminal at the half way point.

The second half of the race takes runners along the promenade overlooking the River Mersey showing off the impressive Liverpool skyline at it's best.

The race finishes on Ian Fraser Walk at New Brighton and some of the eagle eyed among you will have seen Ian Fraser Walk feature on a Channel 4 promo which shows wheelchair athletes racing along with the giant Channel 4 logo.
