About the Event
The Manchester Half is a 13.1 mile challenge that takes place every October, starting and finishing by Old Trafford, and is easily the biggest in the region with over 16,000 runners. It’s an event that aims to truly represent all the wonderful people of Manchester, and celebrate our achievements.
Since its launch in 2016 it has received rave reviews from participants, thanks to its professional delivery, flat route and amazing support from crowds around the course.
The 2023 Manchester Half will take place on Sunday 15th October, as Manchester’s favourite half marathon places are extremely popular, early entries are now closed as we have reached our capacity.
