Join #TeamARUK for the marathon relay
This year we are entering teams of two or four to take part in the marathon relay. Click here to register your interest and find out how to sign up.

Join #TeamARUK for this fast, flat and friendly route, which (for the first-time ever!) will take you into the centre of Manchester. The new route takes a three-mile loop into the city centre, showcasing some of the city’s most iconic landmarks including the Manchester Opera House, Spinningfields, Albert Memorial Hall and The Midland Hotel, amongst many others. Roads will be completely closed, allowing an estimated 25,000 people to take part, and thousands more to gather in the city centre to watch.
This amazing marathon is suitable for all abilities, and an ideal event for regular runners to achieve a personal best due to the fast and flat nature of the course.

Venue: White City Arch, Chester Road

Address: Old Trafford, Manchester, M16 0SN

  • A dedicated fundraising team to offer help and support.
  • A fundraising pack bursting with hints and tips.
  • A free Alzheimer’s Research UK running vest or technical t-shirt.
