It’s the Liverpool Chamber 5kTeam Challenge!

Not so long ago the Liverpool Corporate Cup was the flagship event in the road racing calendar. It had a great city centre course and was attracting more that 3,000 entries from runners both in and out of the city.

Due to development work in the city it had to relocate to Croxteth Park in 2005 and since then numbers have declined due in part to the out of town location.

Liverpool Chamber and L13 10K are currently in negotiation to bring the Liverpool Corporate Cup back to the city as the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce 5k Team Challenge.

Comprising four team members from businesses in the city and the wider Merseyside area, we hope the race will take place on Sunday 21 September 2008. We feel it’s a great opportunity to promote the city in its European Capital of Culture year, and give both chamber members and other businesses a chance to endorse health and fitness within their organisations.

Alan Rothwell of Run Liverpool said: “We think we’ve got a city centre location, starting and finishing within sight of the three graces. We’re hoping for 3000 runners, and we’d love you to help. Apart from your businesses team entry, we also have some fantastic sponsorship opportunities. Would you like to have 3000 runners wearing your t-shirts? Can you provide the goody bags or winners medals? Or perhaps donate the water or fruit on the day? We’ll give you great publicity leading up to the event and of course on the day.

Please note, each team should have at least one female member.”

If you can help, email Jenny.stewart@liverpoolchamber.org.u
