The Manchester Marathon is the UK's second largest marathon and for the first time next year the marathon will take you into the centre of Manchester!
The amended route takes a three-mile loop into the city centre, showcasing some of the city’s most iconic landmarks including the Manchester Opera House, Spinningfields, Albert Memorial Hall and The Midland Hotel amongst many others. Roads will be completely closed, allowing an estimated 25,000 people to take part, and thousands more to gather in the city centre to watch.
The start will remain in its present location under the White City Arch, with the world-famous backdrop of Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium, and continue to offer its popular finish running past Trafford Town Hall and Lancashire Cricket Club.
