Welcome to the Hillsborough to Anfield Run

Welcome to the Hillsborough to Anfield Run 2013


This year we are running 96 miles in 3 days to aid Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and The Children’s Hospital, Sheffield from the 4th to 6th April 2013.

See how you can help

Last year we raised £15,000 for The Hillsborough Families Support Group and the Hillsborough Justice Campaign, running 76 miles.


As last year, we will be starting the run at Hillsborough and ending at Anfield and we are extremely grateful to Liverpool FC and Sheffield Wednesday FC for their support. Without them, this run could not take place.

The Hillsborough Families Support Group and the Hillsborough Justice Campaign are completely committed to our undertaking again this year and we are delighted not only to have them on board, but honoured to be doing the run in memory of the 96 with their support.

  • The Hillsborough to Anfield run is a fine initiative linking the people of two great cities, demonstrating generosity of spirit and the determination of all who have campaigned tirelessly for justice. Alder Hey and The Children's Hospital certainly work to ensure a brighter future for our children within our communities and are brilliant choices. It is remarkable how those who themselves have suffered so much are often the first to respond to the pain of others. So it is with the Hillsborough families and survivors. For truth and justice. YNRA!

  • We are delighted to be one of the beneficiaries of this unique event which is recognising the tragic events of 1989, joining the two stadia of Anfield and Hillsborough and raising money for two of the UK’s four stand-alone children’s hospitals – Alder Hey and The Children's Hospital, Sheffield. The 96 mile route will be challenging and we will be hoping the runners complete the course safely and be justifiably proud of their efforts

    Chris Done, Head of Fundraising and PR - Alder Hey

  • “We are pleased to add our total support for this project, together with Liverpool FC and the wider communities of both cities central to the Hillsborough disaster. “The concept of linking the two children’s hospitals as chief beneficiaries from the Hillsborough to Anfield Run is inspired and will only strengthen the existing bond between Liverpool and Sheffield. “Sheffield Wednesday continues to admire and give our complete respect to the families and friends of the 96, who will always remain in our thoughts

    Trevor Braithwait, Director of Communications, Sheffield Wednesday

  • We’re honoured to be one of the charities to benefit from this inspiring event, which is bringing so many people together. The money raised will go to our Make it Better appeal, to help transform The Children’s Hospital here in Sheffield and make our extraordinary hospital even better. As one of only four stand-alone children’s hospitals in the country, along with Alder Hey, we are extremely grateful to supporters like the Hillsborough-Anfield Run Team who help us to keep on making our hospital the best it can be for children from across our region and beyond.

  • I'm very much behind the Hillsborough to Anfield run, the people involved and everything it stands for. It's certainly not going to be easy for the participants and this shows how commited to the justice cause these guys are and I'm sure they'll pull through as they're taking it really seriously and training really hard to make sure it will be a success. I wish all involved the best of luck and applaud them also for showing the support to the cause an hopefully it will help towards producing the result we all want- JUSTICE
