Manchester Road Runners are proud to present the MRR 5th Annual Canal 10K, our 5th Out-And-Back All-Terrain Race!!
From the burgeoning heart of Manchester’s waterside, the event begins at The Wharf Pub, Wharfside of the Manchester Ship Canal!
This flat and fast run along the canal boasts cobbled walkways, winding gravel paths, serene waters and top destinations such as Media City, Old Trafford Football ground and more.
The race is timed in line with EA and UKA standards, with results and photos available shortly after finishing.
The route is signposted every KM, and is marshalled at various junctures for those getting on an off the canal route.
A water station is available at the 5K halfway point at Stretford Marina, where you turn also turn back to head to the finish line.
