Race Description

The Greater Manchester Marathon 2013, which was back in 2012 for the first time after a decade, will take place on Sunday 28 April.

New for 2013, the Greater Manchester Marathon will be starting on the A56 White City Roundabout in Old Trafford, just a short walk from Manchester United Football Club, and finishing outside the magnificent stadium. The race village will be located on the E2 car park in front of the stadium. Based on feedback from the runners in 2012 additional changes have also been made to the route and a new improved route has been implemented for 2013 in conjunction with the police and Trafford Council, taking in the Trafford Quays area, Sale, Brooklands, Timperley, Altrincham and Urmston. Some of the route’s highlights include the Imperial War Museum, the new Media City, and of course the finish outside the Manchester United Football Club.

This is a flat, fast route with only 55m of elevation gain, perfect for beginners as well as seasoned runners who want to achieve a new PB.

Athletics legend Ron Hill MBE has pledged his support for the marathon in his hometown again and he will be starting the race on 28 April and then joining the running crowds for the initial 8 miles.

Entry is limited to 10,000 runners and registration to the Greater Manchester Marathon is now open. All finishers receive a medal, a t-shirt and a fantastic goody bag.
