The Manchester Marathon provides a fast course, great entertainment and outstanding crowd support. And what's more, it all ends with a glorious finish at Emirates Old Trafford, the home of Lancashire Cricket Club.

In 2021, the Manchester Marathon route is changing. The amended route takes a 3-mile loop into the city centre, showcasing some of the city’s most iconic landmarks. You'll pass the Manchester Opera House, Spinningfields, Albert Memorial Hall and The Midland Hotel amongst many other sights. 

Join Team Christie and you can help us to make a real difference to the lives of cancer patients and their families.

If taking on the marathon by yourself sounds a bit too daunting, how about splitting the distance and taking it on as part of a two or four person relay team?

We have limited free charity relay places. In return, you'll just need to pledge to raise a combined minimum of £300 in sponsorship. If you would like to apply for one of our relay places, please sign up on our guaranteed charity place form below

You can also sign up through the Greater Manchester Marathon website. Don’t forget to select The Christie as your charity of choice to raise funds for us.
