Elite Athletes

Elite entries to the 2024 Manchester Half are now open.

The Manchester Half would like to invite elite runners to take part free of charge. The course is flat and offers a fantastic opportunity to get a very fast time.

To qualify for Free Entry* you will need to have achieved the following times:

Male: Sub 01:07:00 half marathon or sub 00:30:00 minute 10km

Racing Wheelchairs**: Sub 01:20:00

*Please note, we do not currently allow hand-cycles to enter our running races. Elite wheelchair athletes who are competing for a prize trophy MUST participate in a racing wheelchair.

The course has been officially measured and has the potential for some huge personal best times.
