The adidas Manchester Marathon is set to return on Sunday 14th April as the one of the largest Marathon events in Europe.

Last April, we saw the successful return of the adidas Manchester Marathon bringing a fantastic £5.4 million boost to the local economy. The event was attended by over 24,000 people, who came to achieve personal goals and also to fulfil charity fundraising for causes close to their hearts. The event raised an amazing £1.9 million for multiple local and national charities, and donated thousands more to local clubs, groups and organisations who volunteered at it.

Road closures will be in effect along and immediately around the adidas Manchester Marathon route, and those roads in the surrounding area that are open will be very busy so please plan extra times for any journeys you need to take. Many bus services will also be diverted due to these closures.

We recommend using Metrolink to travel to and from the event as there are several stops close to the event village, start line and finish line in Trafford. For further details, please visit
