Join Team Shelter for the 2019 Manchester Marathon

The Greater Manchester Marathon has been running for 40 years, and it’s still as popular as ever. With a spectacular finish at the historic Old Trafford cricket ground, it’s easy to see why it was voted the UK's Best Marathon two years running.

The route takes runners south of the city, to Trafford Park, Sale, Timperley, Altrincham, Urmston and Stretford. It’s also one of the flattest courses going, so it’s perfect if you’re looking for that personal best. With a festival atmosphere, great entertainment and amazing support for runners the length of the course, it really is one of the friendliest Marathons around.

Why take on this charity run for Shelter?

Last year, 4.5 million people came to us for help - online, in person and over the phone. Our advisers and legal experts offer practical advice and support to help each of these people find a home, keep a home and make it safe and secure.

But as the number of people turning to us increases, so does the demand on our advisers. With your help and support we can make sure that no one faces bad housing or homelessness alone. We won't stop until there's a home for everyone. Join us today.
