Road Closure Info

The Manchester Half Marathon is set to return with over 16,500 taking to the streets of Manchester and Trafford on Sunday 15th October as the largest Half Marathon in the region.

2022 saw the return of two separate events in April & October after the post covid, joint event in 2021. The Manchester Half Marathon saw a successful return last October bringing a fantastic boost to the local economy. The event was attended by nearly 11,500 participants taking on the challenge of 13.1 miles to achieve personal goals and also to fulfil charity fundraising for causes close to their hearts. The event raised around £500,000 for multiple local and national charities, and donated thousands more to local clubs, groups and organisations who volunteered at it.

Road closures will be in effect along and immediately around the Half Marathon route starting from Saturday, 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

Please see the interactive map for road closure information and temporary vehicle crossing point details. 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.
