Back in 1995, I was part of a group of 6 runners from Warrington running clubs who were invited to represent the borough and Colin Parry's peace initiative, then known as The Warrington Project, by running in the Belfast Marathon. The event was particularly memorable for me for many different reasons, not least of which was that I achieved my lifetime personal best time of 2:57:50, finishing in 61st position.
We flew from Liverpool to Belfast and in doing so, took off across the Mersey then flew diagonally over the Wirral Peninsula, from Eastham on the banks of the Mersey to West Kirby on the Dee estuary. Knowing the Wirral area well, I took full advantage by taking several pictures on both the outward and return journeys. Some of them are published on this page.
