ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon


The ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon is your best race option if you want a new PB or to hit your target time next spring. Add in great entertainment around the course, outstanding crowd support and a glorious finish, and you will see why the race was voted the UK's "Best Marathon" by The Running Awards in 2014 and 2015.

With only 54m elevation gain the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon is flatter than Berlin, Paris, New York, Chicago and Hamburg, which makes it perfect if you are a first time marathoner, seeking a PB or a qualifying time. The race starts and finishes near Manchester United Football Club in Old Trafford and 15,000 places are available for 2016.

The ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon also incorporates the 2 Leg Half/Half, the 4 Leg Team Relay and the MLP Solicitors Corporate Entry.

Make sure you hit your target time next April and go to www.greatermanchestermarathon.com to secure your place now. #RUNASICSMCR
