The Manchester Half Marathon is set to return on Sunday 9th October as the largest Half Marathon in the region.

After the cancellation of the 2020 event due to Covid restrictions, the Manchester Half Marathon event saw a successful return in October 2021 alongside the Therme Manchester Marathon with a fantastic £7.4 million boost to the local economy. The event was attended by 40,000 persons competing over the two events in one day, who came to achieve personal goals and also to fulfil charity fundraising for causes close to their hearts. The event raised an amazing £5 million for multiple local and national charities, and donated thousands more to local clubs, groups and organisations who volunteered at it.

Roads closures will be in effect along and immediately around the Half Marathon route, and those roads in the surrounding area that are open will be very busy so please plan extra times for any journeys you need to take. Many bus services will also be diverted due to these closures.

We recommend using Metrolink to travel to and from the Event as there are several stops close to the athlete village, start line and finish line in Trafford. For further details, please visit the TGFM WEBSITE.

Please note that in some unavoidable circumstances the opening times for crossing points may be subject to a short delay. We are hopeful that we will be able to deliver this service on time.
