The organising team would like to wish you best of luck and promise that we will do everything we can to make this race the most enjoyable one you have entered this year.

If you only enter one half marathon this year, make it the Manchester Half Marathon.

One of the flattest and fastest around. The only 41m of elevation gain and a 2 mile + finishing straight, we expect to see some very fast times here.

Great entertainment, outstanding crowd support and glorious finish at Emirates Old Trafford, the home of Lancashire Cricket Club, plus a medal and a technical t-shirt for all finishers!

To give you an idea of how fast this course is, 74% of the first 50 finishers ran a personal best or a season best. 56% of the top 250 ran a PB or SB. This is your half marathon to literally smash it!
