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. 

It was an honour for us to be able to undertake this challenge for Scope. Knowing we were raising money for such an amazing cause really did keep us focused each step (and sprint!) of the way.

The difference you can make

By signing up to the Manchester Half Marathon with Scope, you'll be raising vital funds to help us end inequality for disabled people.

The pandemic has been difficult for everyone, but for disabled people its exacerbated existing barriers and exposed many new issues, leaving more and more disabled people feeling isolated and forgotten.

£25 could cover the cost of providing advice from a trained professional on our online community.

£75 could go towards our parent support services, giving parents of disabled children practical, tailored advice on a range of topics.

£450 could cover the cost of 50 phone calls to the Scope Helpline, providing free, independent and impartial advice and support on issues that matter to disabled people and their families.

I can honestly say that I don’t think I could have coped had it not been for the Helpline. They have given me so much time and support through all my difficulties and battles.
