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

One of the flattest and fastest around. With 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 a 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 smash it!
