Rock n Roll Marathon Series Hub
The Rock n Roll Liverpool Team will be on hand to answer any questions regarding Remix Challenge Medals and other Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series races and have desks within the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series Merchandise Area. 

Baggage/Gear Check
Before you enter your assigned corral, drop-off your pre-race/post-race clothing and belongings at the Baggage Check. While you run, your personal items will be held at Baggage Check.

You may leave a small bag at the Baggage Area (or ‘Gear Check’ as we call it in America) during the race. This is situated inside the Echo Arena. You may use a small bag of your own. The maximum size for bags is 50cm x 30cm x 20cm. This is smaller than an airline cabin bag –the size of a small backpack –larger bags will not be accepted.

On race morning, please affix your baggage check tag (on the bottom portion of your race number) to your bag with the tie provided, before leaving it at the Baggage Area. Baggage will be open from 7:30am until 4:30pm. Please reclaim your bag by 4:30pm on race day.

Please DO NOT leave valuables, cash or jewellery in your bag. The event is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

10K on Penny Lane Bag Drop: You must use the drawstring bag provided for 10k runners. The bag drop closes 08:25 and the trucks will then depart to the finish area, where bags must be reclaimed by 11:00am.

Wave Start
In an effort to provide every one of our participants with as comfortable a run as possible, a Wave Start will be incorporated in most Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series events.

Participants are assigned to an appropriate corral based on the projected finishing time submitted on their entry form. Typically, there are multiple waves assigned to several of the finishing times. All spectators should be aware of this when organizing their viewing schedule for the day.

  • When the gun fires, the first corral will be released. The rest of the participants will be held at the start line.
  • At pre-determined intervals the next corral will be released.
  • By using this staggered starting method, the pack will be spread out and allow every runner to settle into their racing rhythm from the first step right to the finish line.

Time Limits
To ensure that roads reopen to vehicular traffic at the scheduled times, the course time limits will be strictly enforced. Participants must maintain a pace faster than the course time limits in order to complete the race on closed city streets. Runners who fall behind the cutoff pace at any time will be stopped and provided transportation in the tail bus. Water stations, first aid points and road closures will be removed as the tail bus passes. Please note – this is timing tag time, not gun time. Course time limits begin when the last participant and Tail Vehicle cross the start line.

If a participant’s pace falls below the course time limits, they have a few options:

  • Increase their pace to stay within the event minimum pace;
  • Board a “sag wagon” shuttle to move forward on the course, where they may continue to participate in the event, maintaining the minimum pace required; or
  • If the participant cannot continue, they may board a sag wagon to be dropped off at the next shuttle location, at a nearby medical station. The participant will be seen by a Medical Team captain to be cleared for the medical shuttle to transport the participant to the finish line.

Information Booths and Lost & Found
Information Booths will be positioned at the start and finish to assist you with any race day questions and help you find your way. The Information Booths will also serve as the race day Lost & Found. Any valuables found at the start or finish should be turned in to the Information Booth. Items from the start will be transported to the finish.

Any valuable items NOT claimed at the finish by 3 pm will be sent back to our office. To claim a lost item after the event, please contact Competitor Group at
