Manchester Half

Flat & Friendly

This autumn half is the ideal race for anyone looking for a PB...

The Manchester Half Marathon is an event that has gained outstanding momentum since its inception in 2016, and in 2023 it returns with organisers promising it will be better than ever when runners toe the line on 15 October.

Over the years the race has received rave reviews from participants, thanks to its amazing atmosphere, famous flat route and unrivalled support from crowds along the 13.1 mile course (think loud and then double it!) - adding to the distinctive charm of this event.

15,000 participants are expected to take to the fast and flat course through the friendly and bustling city centre of Manchester. Whether you’re hunting down a PB, taking on your first ever half marathon or simply looking for a fun event to take part in, the Manchester Half Marathon promises the confident delivery of a fantastic day out.  

Speaking about the event, organisers commented: "You can expect a fleet of experienced pacers; energising on-route entertainment; cheer stations; and the most unique medal you have ever seen (we dare you to disagree!) There is also an exciting 2023 theme which is soon to be announced, so watch this space for the juicy details!"

Get ready for this fantastic event which starts and finishes at Old Trafford, and enjoy all that this modern, flourishing city has to offer over the event weekend. Take on the challenge solo, or rally the troops and receive great discounts for group entries of 4 or 10+ people.
