The Manchester Half Marathon starts and finishes at Emirates Old Trafford Lancashire County Cricket Club, the same venue as the popular ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon. It takes runners on wide, closed roads through Old Trafford, Stretford, Brooklands and Sale, and we are once again promising plenty of entertainment and outstanding crowd support en-route.
In 2018 a total of 15,000 places are available for the Manchester Half Marathon. We are anticipating a sell-out, with more than half of the runners coming from outside the Greater Manchester area.
In 2016 22% of our runners ran for charity raising a staggering £1.5million.Read More Read Less
There are just over 1,000 mountain gorillas left in the world and all four gorilla subspecies are highly endangered. The rangers who protect them risk their lives to keep them safe. They need simple things to do their jobs well: rainwear to protect them in the forest, compasses to help them find their way in inhospitable terrain, mountain tents for long nights spent on patrol. By taking part in an event, and fundraising for us, you will allow us to continue our award-winning conservation projects in Africa, providing a brighter future for gorillas and the people they live alongside.
