The Liverpool Half Marathon is an annual road running event held on the streets of Liverpool, United Kingdom. It has previously been sponsored by the Japanese Mizuno Corporation.

In 2014 the Liverpool Half Marathon was named as one the eight events in the Vitality Run Series alongside the Brighton Half Marathon, Reading Half Marathon, Oxford Half Marathon, Bath Half Marathon, North London Half Marathon, Hackney Half Marathon and British 10k London Run.

Generally the course starts in Liverpool town centre and goes up Parliament Street then turns south towards Sefton Park and Otterspool before proceeding north along the waterfront back towards the centre.[1]

In 2015 the event featured a 10-mile race running along a similar route.[2]
