Race Preview: Rock 'n' Roll Liverpool Half Marathon

Disclaimer: I received entry to Rock 'N' Roll Liverpool Half Marathon as part of being a BibRave Pro. All opinions are my own. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

One of the reasons my family moved to Ireland was for the opportunity to travel and see the world. As an American runner, the allure of earning a medal overseas has always appealed to me. So imagine my elation when Bibrave partnered with the Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon Series and needed some Bibrave Pros to run a few of their races. I just knew I had to represent Bibrave at as many European races as possible!

My first Bibrave European race will be at the Liverpool Rock ‘N’ Roll half marathon on 28 May 2017!

I am so excited for this chance to race in Liverpool. My son is a MASSIVE Liverpool FC fan and is completely jealous that I am taking this trip without him. He said he’s happy wait at Anfield until I finished. I’m thrilled to travel to the fabulous hometown of the Beatles to see it for myself! You see, now that I live in Ireland, many European destinations are very accessible. The flight from Dublin to Liverpool is less than an hour and is very reasonably priced. In fact, it will take me less time to get to Liverpool from Dublin by plane than it took me to drive to Tulsa from Norman in Oklahoma. 

Anyone who’s ever run a Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon Series event knows how amazing their finishers’ medals are. And they often reward runners who participate in more than one Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon Series event with significant swag. If you #RunForTheBling, I highly recommend you check out this link to see what super swag you may be eligible to earn at each event. For me, I signed up for the Heavy Medals since I plan to run more than one Rock ‘N’ Roll event in 2017. You can also earn extra medals over one weekend if you enter more than one distance of race so be sure to check out all the options available to you.
