The Simplyhealth Great Manchester Run Course

The Simplyhealth Great Manchester Run is known for its buzzing atmosphere, incredible supporters and the booming Manchester anthems that rock the city's streets.  

It doesn’t matter why you run, or how fast you go; everyone is a hero when they cross the line at the Simplyhealth Great Manchester Run. 

 

10K Course

The start line is on Portland Street near the junction with Oxford Street. The finish system will remain in operation until all runners have crossed the line on Deansgate so all runners will receive their time and Finisher's Pack.

Look out for…

Take in the views of Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium, the award-winning Imperial War Museum and The Lowry. You will also pass the famous cobbles of Coronation Street’s new set. Perhaps the most significant landmark will be Beetham Tower, the 47-storey skyscraper which almost marks the finish line for you!

 

Half Marathon Course

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

Manchester's newest half marathon will take runners of all abilities on a 13.1 mile tour of the city. The route passes by two of the UK's most iconic football grounds, the Etihad Stadium and Old Trafford, as well as the Imperial War Museum and Albert Square. The Mancunian Way will also be closed off to vehicles for one day only, allowing participants a safe, unique running experience through the city. Please note there is a low speed bump on the roadway by the Etihad Stadium at approximately 4.75 miles near the turnaround point on the half marathon course. Signage will highlight this.

The course will provide you with plenty of atmosphere to keep you going... With bands on the run, charity cheer points, musical entertainment and thousands of specators shouting your name - you'll stay motivated all the way to the finish line!

Please note: the course may be subject to change.
