Runners can now register for the 2020 Manchester Marathon

Runners can now register for the Manchester Marathon 2020. Tens of thousands of people took to the streets for the annual race early this year.

Following the huge success of last year's marathon efforts - which saw more than £1m raised for good causes including Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, Cancer Research UK, Alzheimer's Society, and The Christie - people are being encouraged to sign up and make 2020 even better.

From Wednesday, September 4, at 10am, 5,000 early places will be available on a first come, first served basis.

Organizers expect there to be a lot of competition for a spot.

Starting at the same location under the White City Arch, the challenge-seekers will pass the Manchester Opera House, Spinningfields and Albert Memorial Hall before completing their extraordinary efforts by at the Lancashire Cricket Club.
