Very well organised Half Marathon. Very impressed with the organisation of the Half Marathon, toilets were placed on the way to the start area and didn’t have to queue for long, start area was simply going left or right. The warm up was fun. The entertainment and support the whole way was fantastic! Loved the mist showers and the lead up to the finish gantry was amazing with the disco under the bridge with the smoke to run through to then see the finish line for a short sprint to the end! Had great fun plus also got a pb! Will definitely be back :)

Fantastic, well organised event. I loved this event. It was brilliantly organised and it was such an honour taking part in the event as a runner whereas last year I was a spectator and even then loved every minute of it. It makes me so proud to be Mancunian: the best of humanity is seen at events like this. Cannot wait for next year! May even do the half marathon!
