Why choose the Greater Manchester Marathon?

If you’re looking for an award winning, flat, fast, friendly marathon, this is the race for you! Race through the streets of Manchester to the cheers of thousands of supporters before finishing your race at the home of Manchester United. Here’s how to turn your run into a charity challenge by raising funds for Unicef.

Why run it for Unicef?

Your fundraising through the Greater Manchester Marathon can make a huge difference for children. With your support, Unicef can protect millions of vulnerable children around the world.

Did you know that £500 in sponsorship could provide a month’s supply of life-saving peanut paste to bring 22 malnourished children back to health?

Got your own place?

If you’ve already got your own place in the Greater Manchester Marathon, we’d love for you to fundraise for us. There is no minimum fundraising commitment; we would only ask you to raise what you can.
