More than 450 people took part in Sunday’s inaugural ‘If You Know Your History’ Everton-themed 5k run in aid of The People’s Place – Everton in the Community’s proposed purpose-built mental health facility in the shadows of Goodison Park.
Participants included Everton Director of Football Marcel Brands, as well as first-team coach and Club legend Duncan Ferguson.
The run – organised in partnership with BTR Liverpool – got under way at Prince Rupert’s Lock-Up Tower, with runners setting off to the sound of the iconic Goodison siren and Z Cars.
The route took participants on a journey through 141 years of Everton’s history, before finishing at Stanley Park, overlooking Goodison.
As well as Brands and Ferguson, Club representatives included Everton ambassadors Graham Stuart and Ian Snodin.
Club great Joe Royle and former Blues player Cliff Marshall were also in attendance, along with Lord Mayor Councillor Anna Rothery.
Ex-Everton players Gareth Farrelly and Stuart Barlow took part in the run, which saw participants greeted at the finish line by the Blue Nose Brass Band.
