Manchester Marathon 2020

05 April 2020

Royal Manchester Children's Hospital Charity are delighted to be a partner for the 2020 Manchester Marathon!

The course is one of the flattest in the world, so is great for anyone looking to do their first marathon, or for those looking to set a new personal best time. New for 2020, the route will be heading in to the city centre for the first time, allowing thousands to gather in the city to cheer on the runners!

We have a limited number of FREE charity places available  If you would like to register for one of our FREE charity places with a minimum sponsorship of £300, or if you have secured your own place in the event and would like to order a sponsorship pack, please click here.

If taking on the marathon by yourself sounds a bit too daunting, how about taking it on as part of a two or four person relay team? We have limited FREE charity places with a combined minimum sponsorship of £300 available for both the two-person relay and four-person relay - register here.
