You could try a bit of skiing or get your football fix, take a trip to some of the best shops in the UK, or maybe visit a museum or a brewery; there really is something for everyone.
Manchester's biggest and best weekend of running kicks off with the city centre half marathon followed by the famous 10k. Soak up the fantastic on-course atmosphere and feel the pride of the city as you cross that finish line on Deansgate.
