Entries for Manchester Half Open April 14th: Anticipation Grows Following Last Year’s Sell-Out

As anticipation mounts for the upcoming Manchester Half on October 13th, we are delighted to announce that entries for this year’s event will open to the public on the 14th April. Those who sign up for Priority Access will receive an email with exclusive access to the entries on 11th April.

Following the success of previous years, the Manchester Half has become a much-loved fixture in the city’s sporting calendar, drawing participants from across the country and beyond. Last year’s event saw an unprecedented level of interest, with all available places snapped up well in advance. As a result, we urge eager participants to sign up for Priority Access to avoid disappointment.

“The response to last year’s Manchester Half was overwhelming, with 16,500 participants of all abilities coming together to take on the challenge,” said CEO, Andrew Smith. “We’re expecting another incredible turnout this year”

The Manchester Half allows participants to test their mettle on a flat and fast 13.1-mile course that showcases the city’s iconic landmarks and vibrant atmosphere. From seasoned runners aiming for a personal best to first-timers seeking a new challenge, the Half promises something for all.

“We’re incredibly proud of the Manchester Half and the sense of community it fosters,” added Smith. “It’s not just about the event itself; it’s about bringing people together, promoting health and wellbeing, and supporting charitable causes.”

In addition to providing a platform for personal achievement, the Manchester Half also serves as a fundraiser for various charitable organisations. Participants are encouraged to raise funds for causes close to their hearts, with last year’s event generating significant donations for numerous charities.

With just six months until event day, already 8,000 people have signed up for the event excitement and over 6,000 people already signed up for priority access to the net batch of entries. Whether for the challenge, the camaraderie, or the chance to make a difference, the Manchester Half promises an unforgettable experience for all who participate.
