How to enter

There are two ways to get signed up for the Greater Manchester Marathon 2019:

Secure a charity place

Our charity places are a great way to make a difference to people affected by cancer with every step. We ask that you pledge to raise a minimum of £400 in sponsorship (excluding Gift Aid) and there’s a £30 registration fee.

The registration fee is payable to Macmillan Cancer Support Trading Limited which is wholly owned subsidiary of Macmillan Cancer Support. Macmillan Cancer Support Trading Limited donates 100% of its profits to Macmillan Cancer Support each year.

To apply, simply click the ‘Get a place’ button and complete our online application form.

Use your own place

Public entry for the 2019 Greater Manchester Marathon is open at the official race website.

Once your place is secured click the ‘I have my own place’ button to join the team and order your running kit. There's no minimum sponsorship, just raise as much as you can!

What do I get as part of #TeamMacmillan?

Whichever way you choose to join, as part of Team Macmillan we'll make sure you have:

  • Our fundraising pack, access to our online training zone and loads of fundraising tips and tricks.
  • Your free Team Macmillan technical running vest or t-shirt, plus iron on letters to customise your kit.
  • Regular e-newsletters keeping you in the loop in the lead up to race day.
  • And of course... the loudest and most supportive cheerers on the course!
  • Most importantly we will provide you with a reason to put in those months of training and fundraising, because you know that your efforts are going towards supporting people living with cancer in the UK today.

    The minimum age for this event is 18 years old.
