review of 2013 Manchester City Marathon.   

0 / 5 Stars


Spectator friendly. If they know the course they can see particular runners in many locations. For runners, it's rolling hills with good traffic control. There are not many participants (~500) and there are sections that are very remote, and it can get lonely. The last 3 miles have a lot of annoying turns, including a switch back on a sidewalk, which at mile 24 always makes me nervous. Post race refreshments were not strong, although the hot chocolate was very welcomed.

Race Tips

Early November in Manchester can be cold and raw, dress accordingly.

Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

There are some banks near downtown Manchester which don't enforce parking on Sundays. This does not appear to be a well known fact as I could easily find parking half an hour pre-race.

Finish Time Equivalent

If you ran the Manchester City Marathon in 4:29:00, what would your time in the Boston Marathon be?
