Manchester Marathon

Pull on your running shoes and take on the most popular marathon in the North West, the Manchester Marathon on 16th April 2023!


Pull on your running shoes and take on the most popular marathon in the North West; the adidas Manchester Marathon 2023! 

Manchester United Foundation are giving you the opportunity to run with the Reds and raise vital funds to help local children.

Famous for its flat and fast route showcasing the best of Manchester, this is an ideal race for seasoned professionals looking for a new personal best, or new long-distance runners looking to tackle their first marathon.

The route for the 26.2 mile challenge will now take you through the city centre on 16th April, whilst still starting and finishing through Old Trafford and close to the Theatre of Dreams.

If a full marathon isn’t your thing, you can also take on the relay option and go the distance with your friends.  You can recruit a partner and take on half a marathon each or conquer 10km each as a team of four.  

Whichever option you choose, by joining our squad of fantastic fundraisers, you will be helping to support Foundation projects which improve the lives of thousands of young people across the most deprived areas of Greater Manchester and the UK.
