Great Manchester Run 2017 weather forecast

Runners competing in a road race

Sun 28 May 2017

The Great Manchester Run is Europe's biggest 10km road race, attracting up to 30,000 runners in recent years. This year runners can choose between the 10km race and a brand new half marathon.

This year's run takes place on Sunday 28 May and forms the latter part of Manchester's Athletics weekend, with the Great City Games Manchester taking place on Friday 26 May and the Junior and Mini Great Manchester Run on Sunday 28 May.

The men's 10km event has yet to claim a British winner, the legendary Ethiopian Haile Gebrsalassie having been victorious on no less than five occasions, before announcing his retirement from competitive running after the Great Manchester Run in 2015. The women's event, however, has seen three British wins, two by Jo Pavey, in 2007 and 2008.
