Day 340 Mile 340: Liverpool Cityscape Run. Today finds me still in Liverpool; home of a large part of British maritime heritage, a number of well known bands and at least two football teams! My run takes me around the Albert Dock to the iconic Liver Building. It is an amazing mix of functional industrial architecture with the red dock warehouses, stately Victorian opulence in the form of the Cunard and Liver buildings and bold modernism in the form of the Liverpool Museum. All of this is set against the backdrop of the churning river Mersey and a solitary busker performing his guitar and vocals from the stage of the swing bridge.
There is an added frisson to the city today as Liverpool FC are playing Spartak Moscow at home in the Champions League this evening. I am not really much of a football fan but there is certainly a vibe and Buzz in dodging through the kitted crowds and the audible mix of spoken Russian and Scouse.
I’m running a mile each day everyday for 2017. If you feel you can sponsor me please do, as all the money raised will go to the Cleft Lip & Palate Association (CLAPA) who provide services all across the UK to support people affected by it.
