Manchester Half Marathon In Trafford

The award-winning Manchester Half Marathon in Trafford is the race to run if you’re looking for a superfast course with a real chance to smash your PB. With only 41m elevation gain and a glorious two-mile+ finish straight, the inaugural event last autumn saw a phenomenal number of athletes achieve a PB, proving that Manchester is one of the fastest high profile half marathons in the UK.

The race went on to win bronze in the Best Half Marathon category (≥ 5,000 runners) at The Running Awards 2017, and is a clear favourite among the running community already.

Runners can look forward to a race of the highest standards, with the flat and fast course on wide, closed roads accurately measured to IAAF / AIMS certification. The athletes’ village at Emirates Old Trafford home of Lancashire County Cricket Club offers fantastic facilities for runners. Add to this the superb crowd support and first-class entertainment and it’s a race not to miss!

15,000 places are available and entry fees start at £34 for affiliated /£36 for non-affiliated athletes.

Put Sunday 15 October 2017 in your diary and get ready to run the race of your life!
