About the Event
The Manchester Marathon is one of the UK’s premier running events, famous for its fast, flat and friendly route. You can find out more about the route here (including start and finish locations).
We pride ourselves on welcoming all to take on our 26.2 mile challenge, from some of the world’s greatest elite runners, to those who thought completing a marathon would never be possible. Many regular runners find this the ideal event to get a personal best time, whilst everybody finds the incredible Mancunian support throughout the course unforgettable.
Thousands of people of all abilities will be at the 2021 event on Sunday 11 April.
