This will be a great experience for the kids at the Greater Manchester Marathon

Kids can now take part in this year’s Greater Manchester Marathon with a special one-mile race. The event has been created for five to 11-year-olds. Race organisers, Xtra Mile Events, expects up to 1,000 children to take part in the Family Mile on April 8. Nick Rusling, CEO of the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon and Manchester Half Marathon, said: “We are thrilled to introduce the Family Mile, which gives kids the chance to really feel involved in the excitement of the race. “We have set up a great experience for young runners – the course starts and finishes at the same places as the official marathon does which makes it even more exciting, especially at the finish line.”
