      Race day! The adidas Manchester Marathon 2024 starts and finishes at Old Trafford. The action kicks off at 09:00am, starting with the wheelchairs and elites, with the final waves starting roughly two hours after this time.

      How to get there

      We recommend travelling to the start and back from the finish on foot, by cycling or by using public transport. We strongly discourage driving to the event due to the extensive road closures which will be operating along the route. Please refer to this page for more information on how to get there.

      The easiest way to travel to the adidas Manchester Marathon 2024 is to use the city’s tram system. The nearest tram stop to access the start and event village areas is Old Trafford located on the Altrincham line (green or purple line). Please note that we do not recommend spectators going to the Start Line as it will be very busy and there are no good vantage points to see runners. Instead, why not go to the city centre for the best views and to soak up the party atmosphere?

      After the race celebrate…you deserve it!

      Safe travels and we hope you enjoyed your adidas Manchester Marathon 2024 experience!
