Manchester’s iconic event returns to the city’s streets in May 2022. If you’re going to do a run in Manchester, make it the greatest.

Celebrate everything that’s incredible about Manchester with us in 2022 and rin the Great Manchester Half Marathon! 

Join thousands, at the Great Manchester Run this year, the city’s must-do event.  Starting and finishing in the heart of the city, soak up the amazing Manchester spirit the whole way round as the route passes iconic landmarks including Old Trafford, Etihad and the Imperial War Museum.  

With 24 entertainment zones that celebrate local character at every kilometre alongside some of the best (and loudest!) crowd support anywhere in the world, and all the action televised live on the BBC, it’s a party atmosphere from start to finish. 

It’s a run for everyone, from locals to celebrated athletes, whether it’s your first or 50th half marathon.  An inclusive celebration of Mancunian running, with music blazing, crowds buzzing, legs pumping and fists bumping.  The city comes alive on Great Manchester Run weekend.
