  1. What is it?

    Great Manchester Run

    Since hosting its first race in 2003, the Great Manchester Run has quickly grown to become one of the most popular events on Britain’s running calendar and Europe’s biggest 10km race.

    The route takes runners through the city centre and passes several of Manchester’s most recognisable landmarks, such as Old Trafford, before ending at Deansgate.

    In addition to the 10km, the event introduced a half-marathon distance in 2017 and over 30,000 competitors are expected to line up for both routes to raise money and awareness for many good causes.

    The Great Manchester Run has hosted some of road-racing’s biggest names over the years, including 2012 and 2016 Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah, five-time race winner Haile Gebrselassie and Ethiopia’s Tirunesh Dibaba in the women’s event.

    Kenya’s Micah Kogo holds the current course record in the men’s event after finishing the 2007 race in a time of 27:24, while four-time winner Dibaba broke the women’s record in 2013 when she finished in 30:49.
