APRIL 2ND 2017

A superfast course, great entertainment, outstanding crowd support and glorious finish at Emirates Old Trafford, the home of Lancashire Cricket Club, plus a medal and ASICS technical t-shirt for all finishers!
To give you an idea of how fast this course is, at the recent Aldi Manchester Half Marathon (a similar route) 74% of the top 50 runners got a PB or SB (season best) with 22 runners going under 70mins (only the world half marathon champs got a higher number of Brits running sub 70mins this year). This race is YOUR best chance to get a marathon PB.
