Manchester Marathon 2020

Manchester Marathon 2020

The Manchester Marathon is one of the UK’s premier running events, famous for its fast, flat and friendly route. You can find out more about the route on the Manchester Marathon website (including start and finish locations).

25,000 people of all abilities will be at the 2020 event on Sunday 5 April.

Since much of the route runs through Trafford, some of the road closures may affect you. Check out Road Closures on the Manchester Marathon website. You can also download the specially created leaflet for residents which contains road closure information, spectator hotspots, parking restrictions and more.
