Win entry to Greater Manchester Marathon and other top prizes!
Manchester is famous for many things, including its unique sports history and heritage. With the Greater Manchester Marathon firmly re-established in the running calendar there is another reason to travel to the northern metropole, and we are pleased to be able to offer this unique prize package to one of our readers.
Taking place on Sunday 28 April, the Greater Manchester Marathon
boasts the flattest marathon route in the UK and one of the flattest in Europe with only 53m elevation gain, which makes it perfect for YOU, the runner, to aim for a new PB or easier to just get around the course if it is your first marathon!
Running icon Ron Hill MBE has pledged his support for the marathon in his hometown and he will be starting the race on 28 April before joining the running crowds for the initial 8 miles. By entering this competition you can win a signed copy of Ron Hill’s book ‘Manchester Marathons’ which, inspired by the Manchester 2002 Commonwealth Games, he has written alongside Neil Shuttleworth to tell the story of the city’s 35 marathons in the years before the games.
The Greater Manchester Marathon starts and finishes outside Manchester United Football Club and takes in the Trafford Quays area, Sale, Brooklands, Timperley, Altrincham and Urmston as well as the Imperial War Museum and Media City. Outstanding crowd support and lots of northern cheer is guaranteed at this iconic race!
The Relay Team Challenge, new for 2013, also takes place alongside the marathon and is aimed at runners of all levels who want to experience the inspiring marathon day atmosphere without tackling the full 26.2 miles themselves. Instead, friends, club mates, work colleagues and family members can sign up as a team of four, covering the marathon distance between them.
