Manchester Half Marathon

The Manchester Half Marathon sees runners take on generous, closed roads across the towns of Old Trafford, Stretford & Brooklands, with the promise of great support and an abundance of entertainment en route. 

The Manchester Half Marathon hosts a very flat course, perfect for smashing personal bests but also the ideal route for those new to half marathons and charity runners. There is a lovely 2 mile flat finish that brings you to the conclusion of the event at Emirates Old Trafford Lancashire County Cricket Club. 

There's still time to secure your entry and support Covid Aid at the same time.

Why fundraise for Covid Aid?

Covid Aid is the UK’s leading national charity dedicated to supporting all those significantly affected by Covid-19. We are here for people throughout the pandemic and beyond on issues including Long Covid, grief and bereavement, and pandemic-related trauma.

There are now more than two million people in the UK with Long Covid, and hundreds of thousands of families dealing with bereavement due to Covid-19 – with thousands more being affected every day.

In our first year we supported more than 100,000 people – your donation will help us grow our awards-nominated Support Community and provide more courses, expert webinars, counselling, listening support, resource packs, and loads more help for those in urgent need.
