We pride ourselves on welcoming all to take on our 26.2 mile challenge, from some superb elite runners, to those who thought completing a marathon would never be possible. Many regular runners find this the ideal event to get a personal best time, whilst everybody finds the incredible Mancunian support throughout the course unforgettable.
The next event will take place on Sunday 14th April 2024.
We know gender stereotypes and institutional bias are holding girls and women back from sport, and in life, and we believe that:
1). It is wrong to deny women and girls access to sport.
2). The distinct physicality of women and girls must be understood and reflected in sport.
3). When sport includes women and girls it helps to tackle gendered economic and health inequalities
For this reason, we aim to:
• Deeply understand women and girls in all their diversity, at each lifestage.
• Raise Awareness of gender inequality in sport and why It matters.
• Pilot Solutions developing policies and concepts for change.
• Inspire Change through campaign, collaboration, and influence.
