The ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon has become one of the most popular races on the running calendar, and if you are thinking of entering a spring marathon then this is the race for you!
Taking place on Sunday 6th April, the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon in Trafford is the flattest and fastest marathon in the UK and is recognised as one of the flattest courses in the world with only 54m elevation gain.
With a deep prize fund and three time bonuses available to UK registered runners, the organisers are attracting a top quality British field to Greater Manchester. If you want to be a part of the race and run a shorter distance you can sign up for the 2 leg ‘Half&Half’ Relay or ‘Four Leg’ Relay, and still experience the unique race day atmosphere.
The start, finish and race village are at Manchester United Football Club in Old Trafford and the race sees huge community support with lots of entertainment and live bands along the route, not to mention the thousands of spectators that come out to cheer you on. A total of 10,000 entries are available for the 2014 race and all finishers receive a big medal, goody bag and ASICS technical t-shirt.
