Trafford Active Fund

The Trafford Active Fund is delivered in partnership with the adidas Manchester Marathon and Manchester Half. The fund aims to build a long-lasting sport and physical activity legacy in Greater Manchester, by getting residents more active, more often.

The ability to stage some of the world’s biggest sports events has brought local and international recognition that Trafford is one of the best sport and leisure destinations in the world. With top class facilities, professional clubs and fantastic mass participation events, the adidas Manchester Marathon and Trafford Council are working to harness and develop the many benefits that sport and physical activity can bring to local communities in Trafford and Greater Manchester.

£1 from every paid entry into both the adidas Manchester Marathon and Manchester Half goes into the Trafford Active Fund. Read about the latest projects which have enhanced the fitness and activity levels of the community in the last year here. We look forward to sharing more details of where the Trafford Active Fund continues to make a difference in due course.
