About the Manchester Half Marathon

The Manchester Half Marathon is one of the most popular running events in the region, with over 15,000 runners.

Whether it's your first half marathon or you're already a marathon maestro, sign up today and join us for a challenge of 13.1 miles.

The money you raise will help to support thousands of people facing homelessness or unfit and unsafe housing. Every mile, every drop of sweat and every pound raised brings us closer to ending the devastating impact of the housing emergency.

We can't fight the housing emergency without your help

From families trapped in hotel rooms to renters made homeless by no-fault evictions, we stand with those at the sharp end of the housing emergency.

Thanks to fundraisers like you, last year we supported 15,555 households through our emergency helpline and 15,846 through our local hubs.

We also tackle the root causes of homelessness, campaigning for renters' rights and demanding more social housing. Together, we can create housing justice.

Frequently asked questions

How do I fundraise for my event?

We're here to help with any fundraising queries and are more than happy to talk through ideas with you. We recommend starting by setting up a fundraising page on JustGiving.

Our top fundraising ideas include bake sales and pub quizzes. You can find all our fundraising resources here, including our paper sponsorship form.

Reaching my fundraising pledge

We’re here to support you with your fundraising as much as possible. Get in touch by emailing or call us on 0344 515 1190.

Not reaching your fundraising pledge impacts what Shelter can achieve, so please make sure you're confident in reaching this target before signing up. The deadline for sending in the funds you've raised is six weeks after event day.

Raising a minimum fundraising pledge

It's important to raise a minimum fundraising pledge, as we invest in places at charity events. Each place is important to ensure we raise as much as possible to support our vital work.

You can reach your pledge through sponsorship from family, friends and colleagues, plus other forms of fundraising such as bake sales or quizzes.
