It's an inclusive celebration of Mancunian running for everyone, from locals to celebrated athletes - and you can be part of it

It’s a new year, with fresh goals to aim for.  

So why not set a challenge… to kick-start your running, to earn an epic medal, to be part of something special. To run your city.

Join thousands of your friends and neighbours at the Great Manchester Run this year, the city’s must-do event.  

Starting and finishing in the heart of the city, soak up the amazing Manchester spirit the whole way round as the route passes iconic landmarks including Old Trafford, Etihad and the Imperial War Museum.

With entertainment zones that celebrate local character at every kilometre, some of the best (and loudest!) crowd support anywhere in the world, and all the action televised live on the BBC, it’s a party atmosphere from start to finish.

It’s a run for everyone, from locals to celebrated athletes, whether it’s your first 10k or your 50th half marathon.  

An inclusive celebration of Mancunian running, with music blazing, crowds buzzing, legs pumping and fists bumping.  

The city comes alive on Great Manchester Run weekend.

You’ll get support from the get-go with training plans and advice, race day prep and motivation every step of the way – they’ll roar you across the finish line and applaud your success in the event village.  

It’s an event day experience like no other.

Celebrate everything that’s incredible about Manchester in 2022 and run your city.
