Manchester Half Marathon - 15th October 2017

The Manchester Half Marathon is back for the second year and will take place on Sunday 15th October 2017.

Of huge appeal is the race’s superfast course. The inaugural Manchester Half Marathon saw a staggering 74% of the first 50 athletes achieve a personal best or season best. With a mere 41m elevation gain and a glorious 2 mile+ straight finish; this flat, fast course makes the Manchester Half Marathon ideal for charity runners new to half marathons and experienced runners alike. 

The Manchester Half Marathon starts and finishes at Emirates Old Trafford Lancashire County Cricket Club, the same venue as the popular ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon. It takes runners on wide, closed roads through Old Trafford, Stretford, Brooklands and Sale, and there will be plenty of entertainment and outstanding crowd support en-route. 

Fee: £30.00                                 Sponsorship target: £150.00
