Great Manchester Run 2018 weather forecast

Runners competing in a road race

Sun 20 May 2018

The 16th year of the Great Manchester Run will attract over 30,000 runners. Like last year, runners can choose between the 10km race and a half marathon. This year's run takes place on Sunday 20 May.

Manchester's newest half marathon will take runners of all abilities on a 13.1 mile tour of the city. The route passes by two of the UK's most iconic football grounds, the Etihad Stadium and Old Trafford, as well as the Imperial War Museum and Albert Square.

The 10k starts on Portland Street near the junction with Oxford Street. Runners and spectators will be able to take in the views of Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium, the award-winning Imperial War Museum and The Lowry. Runners will also pass the famous cobbles of Coronation Street’s new set. Perhaps the most significant landmark will be Beetham Tower, the 47-storey skyscraper which almost marks the finish line.
