Information Point: 

There will be an information point open on the weekend of the event for last minute queries. The team can also issue replacement race numbers/timing chips to anyone who needs one. 

This is where race numbers can be collected, if a runner has secured their entry after the cut off date for postage. 

On Saturday 20th May, we will be in Great Northern Square and open between 10am - 4pm

On Sunday 21st May, we will be on Peter Street, just off Deansgate and open from 07:30am


Runners will be able to leave their baggage free of charge. 

There will be a baggage label attached to the race number, which can be torn off and attached to the bag before depositing it here. 

Those in the Half Marathon, 10K Fast Paced, 10k Orange, 10K Red, 10K Pink and 10K Purple waves can leave their bags in Manchester Central

Those in the Green 10K wave can leave their bag on a baggage bus on Jackson's Row.
