The event's most senior participants were 4 runners aged between 75 and 89 who all did fantastic on the day:-

►  Dorothy Fairhurst, aged 75 from St Helens, finished in 1:05:22.

►  Leslie Holmes, aged 76 from Liverpool, finished in 1:12.

►  Ronnie Jones, aged 80 from Wirral, finished in 1:11:22.

►  Eddie Naisby, aged 89 from Ruthin Wales, in 1:17:16.

Running clubs from across the North West were well represented, including Bramhall Runners, BTR Road Runners, Kirkby Milers, Knowsley Harriers, Liverpool Running Club, Penny Lane Striders, Wallasey AC, and Warrington RC.

Runners included Wirral's very own running man John Hammond, from Oxton, who began his challenge of running 31 marathons in 31 days; who kick started with the BTR Mersey Tunnel 10K. This is all part of John's training for the Marathon Des Sables race in the Sahara Desert in April next year. John is fundraising for Scope.

BTR Liverpool Race Director Alan Rothwell commented:- "Well done to everyone who took on the challenge of running through the Mersey Tunnel; its 12th consecutive year. We had an excellent turn out of more than 2,000 runners, and we were extremely fortunate with the weather conditions. Congratulations to Kirsty Longley on setting a new female course record, excellent running and well done. Thank you to the spectators who came out to cheer on the runners. And special mention to our race day volunteers from Claire House Children's Hospice and Everton in the Community, who did a fantastic job giving out medals, T-shirts and goody bags. Their hard work, support and encouragement goes a very long way and is massively appreciated."

Next in the BTR portfolio is the 14th Annual Liverpool Santa Dash, that will be held on 3 December 2017.
