Asics Greater Manchester Marathon



Distance: 26.2 miles

Cost: £30 Target: £350

The ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon is the UK's flattest, fastest and friendliest marathon. This brilliant course offers great entertainment, outstanding crowd support and a glorious finish at Emirates Old Trafford.

Many regular runners find this the ideal event to get a personal best time with only 55m elevation gain, whilst everybody finds the incredible Mancunian support throughout the course unforgettable. 

The new route takes you into the city centre, showcasing some of the city’s iconic landmarks including the Manchester Opera House, Spinningfields, Albert Memorial Hall and The Midland Hotel amongst many others.
