Welcome to the Greater Manchester Marathon charity challenge page in support of Scotty’s LITTLE Soldiers, the charity for bereaved British Forces children.
The Manchester Marathon has announced that part of the route for the 2020 event, will for the first-time head into the centre of Manchester. The start will remain in its present location under the White City Arch, with the world-famous backdrop of Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium, and continue to offer its popular finish running past Trafford Town Hall and Lancashire Cricket Club.
The amended route takes a three-mile loop into the city centre, showcasing some of the city’s most iconic landmarks including the Manchester Opera House, Spinningfields, Albert Memorial Hall and The Midland Hotel amongst many others. Roads will be completely closed, allowing an estimated 25,000 people to take part, and thousands more to gather in the city centre to watch.

The fundraising team will confirm your place within 48 hours by email. Registration is free but you must raise a minimum of £120 for Scotty’s by the 24th February otherwise you will be at risk of losing your place.
