The Manchester Marathon
The Manchester Marathon course takes in some of Manchester's famous landmarks. So, running the race can be a great opportunity to do some sight seeing.
Below the course map you can watch a short aerial view video of the 2019 Manchester Marathon event.
The start and finish are fairly close to each other. With the finish being near the Old Trafford cricket ground.
Does Manchester Marathon have a Cut-Off time?
Yes, as with any city marathon, there are road closures in place to ensure the safety of the marathon participants. But the closures are only ever temporary. So the finish gantry will remain in place until 4pm. That gives a window of between 6 and a half and seven hours to complete the race.
Details of the road closures and the timing of re-opening various road can be found here.
Will there be pacers at the Manchester Marathon?
Yes, the race organisers are planning to have pacers available covering finishing times from 3 hours to 5 and a half hours in approximately 15 minute increments.
Details of the pacing teams can be found here.
