Scouse 5k is a sea of green for The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity

HUNDREDS of runners donned their curly wigs and took to the streets of Liverpool to raise money for The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity in the Echo Scouse 5k. Among the thousands who set off from St George's Hall were 500 runners decked out in green for Clatterbridge. The charity's team included Olympic Hockey star Sam Quek, who was running with partner Tom Mairs.

Sam, from Wirral, said:- "It was great to see all the runners in their curly wigs having fun while raising money for Clatterbridge. I loved it and was very happy to do my bit to help people who are living with cancer, and raise much needed funds for a new specialist Hospital in Liverpool."

As well as curly wigs some runners donned shell suits, all in the style of the Scousers from the Harry Enfield sketches of the 1990's. The route took them past some of Liverpool's most iconic landmarks including:- The Metropolitan Cathedral, The Cavern and the Town Hall.

The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity was the official charity partner for the event which is in its 2nd year. The charity is striving to raise ₤15 million towards the construction of a new specialist Hospital in Liverpool City Centre and improvements to the Wirral Site.
