Join thousands of people in Manchester's biggest running event! Back to its traditional spring timing, this unmissable race offers a flat route with friendly crowds and is the ideal event for both regular runners and those new to running.

You can also take part in an event with friends and family in a two or four-person relay. There is a dedicated race for blind runners to run with a guide runner, as well as races for elite runners too. Whichever event you choose to take part in, Manchester Marathon guarantees a friendly route with crowds to cheer you on along the way. Therme Manchester Marathons have also committed to a carbon offset programme for the 2022 event.
