Your Manchester Half Marathon experience
Starting at the Emirates Old Trafford, the 13.1 mile route passes through some of Manchester's iconic sights, including Manchester Football Club, Bridgewater Canal and the River Mersey.
As you complete the final miles, you'll finish in style, a half-marathon hero, by the famous Lancashire Cricket Club.
The Manchester Marathon welcomes the use of wheelchairs, assisted or self-propelled, and race runners.
Free places for guides/support runners can be issued for visually impaired runners
There's a Disabled Athletes Access Point for all disabled participants near the starting line, that allows you to start near the front of your wave if you wish.
All disabled athletes must complete the race within the 7 hours cut off time.
