The Manchester Half is a 13.1 mile challenge that takes place every October, starting and finishing by Old Trafford, and is easily the biggest in the region with over 15,000 runners.

The Manchester Half is an event that aims to truly represent all the wonderful people of Manchester, and celebrate our achievements.

Since its launch in 2016 it has received rave reviews from participants, thanks to its professional delivery, flat route and amazing support from crowds around the course.

The route contains a brand new section through Manchester City Centre, alongside many favourite sections from previous years through Trafford. The event village will be located at Lancashire County Cricket Club, with the start line around a 10 minute walk away.

The route will be officially measured by an independent body, and a certificate issued to ratify the official Half Marathon distance.

The most common entry type is the individual entry however, we do offer packages which give you a little more bang for your buck! The Supersonic package offers you the opportunity to receive every photo taken of you at the event, plus a personalised medal insert featuring your name and time. This is along side the standard benefits of chip timing (and text when you cross the line) and a personalised bib.

We also accommodate and welcome both Elite and Para athletes.
