The 2022 Great Manchester Run is going to be held on Sunday, May 22. Here you will find when, where and how to watch the event.
The race is considered to be one of the most important in Europe, and the BBC will provide live coverage of all of the action. Throughout the day, there will be live music performed at eight different entertainment zones, in addition to, of course, the sound of thousands of spectators cheering on the competitors.
The event is scheduled to take place on Sunday, May 22, with several start times spread out throughout the day. Participants in the 10k race, which is shorter by 6.9 miles compared to the half marathon, will have the opportunity to take in the sights of Old Trafford as well as The Lowry and the award-winning Imperial War Museum in Salford Quays.
The course of the half marathon takes runners through both of the famed football stadiums, and it joins the path of the 10k in passing past the set of Coronation Street in Salford Quays as well as Beetham Tower, a skyscraper with 47 floors that will serve as the finish line.
On Saturday, just a few of the roads will be blocked, but on Sunday, there will be a much greater number of routes that are closed. Those who are planning to attend Manchester City’s season finale versus Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium, which begins at 4 p.m., may also be impacted by this.
