Originally planned for Sunday 24th May, we are aware of the announcement from Great Runs regarding the postponement of the marathon until Sunday 6th September.

We have been told that charities will receive further updates from the organisers shortly. We will be communicating with our runners regularly to let them have updates once we know more, so please look out for emails from us.

We are disappointed for our runners who have put in so many dedicated hours and miles of training and have been enthusiastically fundraising for us over the past few months.

We are so grateful to our running community for their commitment and amazing support. We very much look forward to a fantastic event in September.

Please bear with us as we gather more details. We will be in touch soon.

The Great Manchester Run route takes runners through the heart of Manchester, passing by iconic tourist sites such as the Imperial War Museum and Manchester United’s home ground, Old Trafford.

This is a great race for anyone, no matter what your ability. The run has an enormously wide appeal and attracts everyone from elite runners and celebs, to running novices.

Take a look at what the  Simplyhealth Great Manchester Run course has in store for you! 

There will be regular music zones across the half-marathon and 10k routes with local DJs, live bands, choirs, drummers and cheering points.
 
A number of the events partners will also be on course to cheer you on with branded zones. These include the Garmin Forerunner zone at 3k and 8k on the 10k course and 9 miles and 12 miles on the half marathon course, the ‘Special K (Kilometre)’ at 4k on the 10k and 10 miles on the half marathon, the Lululemon Zone at 8.5k on the 10k and 12.5 miles on the half and the ENGIE support zone at 2k and 9k of the 10k course and 8.5 miles and 12.5 miles on the half. 
 
Clint Boon’s Boon Army stage has been relocated so you hear him twice at 2.5k and 8.5k on the 10k and 9 miles and 12 miles on the half. Local Manchester DJ and model, Helen Stelling Holt, will play upbeat party house music, R&B funk and disco tunes at Old Trafford. Before you reach the finish line The Hacienda Zone has been introduced this year to create a club themed area, with a playlist created by Hacienda Club co-owner Peter Hook!
