Liverpool Chamber’s 5K Team challenge is off to a great start! With sponsorship from Adecco, Ray Ross Print Factory and now 2000 bottles of water and a cash injection from new sponsors Aldi.

A new course has been agreed for the former Corporate Cup event, this 5K route uses city centre roads starting and finishing in front of the famous Liver Buildings.

The actual start / finish line will be in Brunswick Street outside the entrance to Cunard Buildings. It will then follow a path through George’s Dockway and Mann Island onto Canada Boulevard. Passing through St. Nicholas Place the first 500 meters will be completed at the entrance to Princes Parade where it moves through to Waterloo Road just before the Costco store and then along the main road as far as Cotton Street where it will turn right.

Approaching the half way point here it will then turn right again at Clay Street into Carlton Street where it will then turn left at the bottom back onto Waterloo Road to follow the same route back to the finish.

With a course as flat as this expect good fast times!

Get your map from www.runliverpool.org.uk where you can also get you team entry forms but hurry, your entries need to be with us by Friday 29th August 2008.

And your running won’t be in vain!  We’ve teamed up with the Roy Castle Cancer Foundation, so that your friends and family can show support by sponsoring every kilometre!  We can think of no better reason to put on your running shoes!

We still have a couple of sponsorship opportunities so if you’d like to help just call Jenny Stewart on 0151 227 1234 or email her at jenny.stewart@liverpoolchamber.org.uk
