Everyone involved with RFT97 is delighted that on Saturday 21st May, we will be able to stand side by side in Stanley Park for this very poignant event to celebrate the lives of The 97 in a respectful and fitting way.
The event was last held in 2019. For the past two years, it has been held as a virtual run due to the global pandemic.
The fun run features 5K and 1 Mile distances to walk, jog or run to remember The 97. .
Anyone wishing to take part must register at https://www.btrliverpool.com/97-5k-event and they will be sent their run number.
The event takes place in Stanley Park, located between Liverpool Football Club’s Anfield Stadium and Everton Football Club’s Goodison Park – the perfect backdrop.
Run For The 97 will now also honour LFC fan Andrew Devine, who sadly passed away in July 2021. Andrew received life-changing injuries at Hillsborough, he died 32 years after the disaster.
The event was first staged in 2015 as a positive community legacy event to celebrate the lives of the then 96 Liverpool fans who had died in the Hillsborough tragedy on 15 April 1989.
Run For The 97 also remembers the families of The 97 and the survivors, who have tirelessly fought for justice with the utmost dignity.
Our fellow beneficiaries include Jamie Carragher’s 23 Foundation; Everton in the Community; and Stanley Park junior parkrun. Together we support the vision of creating a legacy event to honour The 97 while ensuring local communities benefit through our work – and we’re all extremely grateful for your support.
