The Port Sunlight Road Race returns for 2024 – Essential info for residents and visitors

One of the biggest events in Port Sunlight’s events calender is returning in 2024 – the Port Sunlight Road Race!

Organised by BTR Liverpool, the Road Race welcomes thousands of runners each year to follow the 5k or 10k route through the village’s leafy streets. It’s arguably one of the most picturesque running events in the UK.This year’s edition takes places on Sunday 9th June.

We’re delighted to be welcoming back Unilever Port Sunlight as the headline sponsor for the event.

All spaces for the Road Race have now been allocated. Registration for the 1k Fun Run is on the day at BTR’s tent.

Road closures and parking information

As in previous years, road closures will be in effect from 7:30am to 2pm on race day, Sunday 9th June. See our map and accompanying information below for all the details (click to download).

We encourage all those attending the event to travel via public transport although there will be some car parks open around the edge of the village on the day.

Information sessions

If you are a village resident or business and have questions about road closures you’ll be pleased to hear that we are running drop-in sessions on Monday 3rd June between 2-3pm and Tuesday 4th June at 5.30-6.30pm at the Church Hall on Bridge Street to help answer your queries. We are particularly anxious to hear from and assist residents with carers (or their neighbours if they cannot attend the drop-in) who will need to gain access to homes on race day.

If you cannot attend either session, contact Brian Pilkington on 0151 644 4800 or [email protected] who will be happy to answer your questions.
