EVERTON players briefly swapped their football shirts for running vests at Finch Farm this week.
Phil Neville along with Tim Cahill, Phil Jagielka and Leon Osman are backing a 60-strong team, who are all running this year’s Liverpool Marathon to raise thousands of pounds for The Roy Castle Lung C ancer Foundation.
The Liverpool Marathon takes places on Sunday, October 9 and is the first marathon to take place in the city for 18 years.
Neville said: “I’d like to wish all of Roy’s Runners the very best of luck in the Liverpool Marathon.
“It’s a great cause and it’s a terrific event. I know that the charity is extremely grateful for all the help it gets and I would urge anyone who fancies having a go next year to make contact.
“The more the merrier – although I’m far happier posing for a publicity photo than I would be running 26 miles!”
