Greater Manchester Marathon
Be part of the action and secure your place in the UK’s Flattest, Fastest and Friendliest Marathon which will be held in April. Awarded the official title of UK’s Best Marathon for two years running at the Running Awards, the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon in Trafford is a marathon not to be missed.
A superfast course, great entertainment, outstanding crowd support and glorious finish at Emirates Old Trafford, plus a medal and ASICS technical t-shirt for all finishers!
Join us and take part in the celebrations as the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon will be the oldest Manchester Marathon. The first Manchester Marathon was run in 1908, starting and finishing at the Saracen’s Head pub in Warburton in Trafford. This was a 20 mile (there was no established distance for a marathon then) run organised by Salford Harriers.
Winning the prestigious titles of Most Improved Race at the Runner’s World Personal Best Awards, and Best Marathon at the Running Awards shows how fast the race is developing.
