Our brand new 10-mile challenge, National, is the perfect motivational tool to step up your training distance. Your task is to complete 10-miles (16.09 kilometres) in one session between Wednesday 31st January and Tuesday 6th February.

Here’s the lowdown:

  • Register NOW to secure your place in this pilot event. It’s limited to 5,000 people.
  • On National week, take part on the day of your choice, in any location, at a time that suits you best. Ideally it would fit into your usual training schedule.
  • Track your 10-miles through the app or device you normally use. It’s not a race, it’s about completing the distance. Perfect for those training for a spring marathon.
  • Upload a screengrab or picture of your achievement to the link sent to you.
  • Choose whether to receive an official reward. All finishers are also entered into a draw for some awesome prizes, PLUS get first refusal on a place into the 2025 adidas Manchester Marathon.

  • 3 free places into the 2025 adidas Manchester Marathon.
  • 3 2024 Manchester Marathon Finisher Hoodies.
  • 5 places into the 2024 Manchester Half (13 October).
