Running Events in Manchester

With over 150 events on offer, Manchester has one of the busiest running calendars in the UK. Runners of any ability can get involved and set themselves a new challenge. The city is home to two of the UK’s most popular running events, the Great Manchester Run (30,000 participants) and the Greater Manchester Marathon (16,000). The local countryside provides a more scenic setting: one of our most highly-rated trail runs is the Langsett 10.
