Event of the Week

two happy runners at Greater Manchester Marathon

ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon

Entries Open Wednesday 5 September at 10.00am

ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon is the largest 26.2 mile race in the North of England race calendar - race day 2019 is Sunday 7 April. The classic spring contest attracts a 15,000plus field which includes world famous pros to first timers eager to take on its famously flat course and experience the incredible Mancunian atmosphere.

After overwhelmingly positive reviews of the latest event, 5,000 launch places were snapped up immediately, with the remainder available on a first come, first served basis.

The event is backed by some of the most trusted names in running including ASICS, Ron Hill and Vassos Alexander and is also partnered with the largest marathon in Europe, Paris.

Starting yards from one Old Trafford (home of Manchester United) and finishing at another (Lancashire Cricket Club) there’s no better course in the UK to get a PB on.

As well as a chunky finish medal, you can expect to claim a high quality ASICS sports top at the finish line to celebrate your achievement.
