The ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon in Trafford 2015 takes place on Sunday 19th April, and registration to the UK’s flattest, fastest and friendliest marathon is open.
With only 54m elevation gain the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon is flatter than Berlin, Paris, New York, Chicago and Hamburg, which makes it perfect for first time marathoners and those seeking a PB or qualifying time. It is also the UK’s Best Marathon as awarded by The Running Awards 2014, and it is renowned for its outstanding crowd support and unique entertainment programme around the course. The race starts and finishes near the Manchester United Football Club in Old Trafford, with an increased number of 12,500 places available for 2015.
The race offers a British-only prize fund and three time bonuses available to UK registered runners only, which is guaranteed to attract a top quality British field. In 2014 the first four men all broke the 2hr 20min mark, and seven out of the top twenty UK marathon times this year were run in Manchester. Andi Jones and Emily Wicks claimed the 2014 winning titles in 2:16:59 and 2:38:26, both setting new course records.
The ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon also incorporates the 2 Leg Half/Half and the 4 Leg Team Relay as well as the MLP Solicitors Corporate Entry, a new addition to the 2015 race.
