Getting there

Make sure you leave plenty of time to get to the start of the Simplyhealth Junior and Mini Great Manchester Run so that you can get fully warmed-up and ready to run!

We're looking forward to seeing you on the start line at Portland street on Sunday 19 May.

If you are a Junior runner...

The best way to walk to the start is from the Town Hall side of the city via Princess St or via Portland St from the Piccadilly Gardens end so that you arrive at the rear of the assembly area where Princess St & Portland St meet. Princess St and Portland St are closed to allow waiting space. When assembly opens, look out for the signs that match the shapes on your run number, or just ask our event team and you will be directed into the start area for assembly.
