UK's second largest marathon and one of Europe's largest is an iconic event

The adidas Manchester Marathon, the UK's second largest marathon and one of Europe's largest is an iconic event drawing participants from all over the world to the vibrant streets of Greater Manchester.

We pride ourselves in welcoming all to take on our 26.2 mile challenge, from some superb elite runners, to those who thought completing a marathon would never be possible. Many regular runners find this the ideal event to get a personal best time, whilst everybody finds the incredible Mancunian support throughout the course unforgettable.

2024 saw a record-breaking 32,000 people sign up to take on the challenge, after final entries sold out months before. 2025 is set to be the biggest year yet as the event returns on Sunday 27th April.

Deadline: 20th Dec 2024
