Manchester Running Tracks

Posted: 15/04/2015 at 17:19

Have looked through old posts but couldn't find a good answer unfortunately


Does anybody know if the Manchester Regional Arena athletics track can be used by the public? Spent about 20 minutes waiting for them to pick up the phone yesterday to ask but never got an answer, and the website seems to only mention the indoor track.


If not does anybody know any other tracks in the area? Am here for work for a couple of days each week so don't have any transport, and ideally was looking for a track I could run to/from for weekly intervals.

km intervals on the ring road aren't really all that fun!! 

Pirate kits for sale for Harrison's Fund

Will let my arm warmers go for a small donation if anybody is after some - size L. They do have a small hole if I remember rightly on the elbow where I crashed in them, and maybe some other scuffs. Happy to pay the postage myself

Surely cheating?

So come on... fess up... who shouted at me yesterday as I was pacing at a local 20 miler on the Thames path? Great spot as I wasn't in pirate gear, but didn't turn quickly enough to see who it was?

Currently 20% off for a few more hours with the code 'BASEISDEAD'. Think this runs out sometime today so I would be quick...


Have just picked up Rookie for £8.50. Will be doing that in the morning with the Long Scream straight afterwards to make the session a little bit longer

What kit/club were you with Dave? Was nice to think I was starting way too fast for what I was expecting to run, only to pick it up at half way and go on to run a negative split!

Have entered IMUK, so not a quick course. Sub 10 would (usually) be KQ so think I need to be realistic, my biking unfortunately isn't up to that level unfortunately... let's see what the next 5 months can bring!

How's training going everyone? I'm managing to average 12 hours despite starting a new job (with weekly travel) which is good, especially for this time of the year.

New marathon pb (3:03, on a training run) and a half marathon pb (1:17:44 at Wokingham) set, 1500 pool time trial pb set this week, and have been fairly regular on the turbo... all in all rather happy for January/February. Unsure that I will be quite so close to 10 hours this year but definitely a step in the right direction

No fortunately not, on a weekday evening if I can finish work in time. Presume some sections (canal path) may not be suitable at night time?

OK, probably for the best!! May start later in the year then if I can work out how to get there and back from Manchester.

Heading to run the IMUK run course next week I think. Hopefully a good opportunity to see why the average run times are usually rather slow
