Take on 26.2 miles around flattest and fastest course at the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon with Cancer Research UK.

Cancer Research UK are delighted to be the official charity for the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon 2015!

With only 55m of elevation gain, this race is a personal best winner. Starting and finishing at the iconic Old Trafford Stadium, the route sweeps through the whole of Manchester.

Cancer Research UK is the only charity fighting over 200 types of cancer including the one that is closest to you. Your support will go towards the £17 million that is spent every year on research in Manchester by more than 2000 locally based researchers in collaboration with the Christie Hospital and the University of Manchester.

Thanks to your support last year, our More Tomorrow’s campaign successfully funded the Manchester Cancer Research Centre, a brand new state-of-the-art research laboratory based in central Manchester.

Join the Cancer Research UK community to receive training and fundraising tips, along with much more, by joining our Facebook event page.
