Course information

The Manchester 5k route takes a scenic tour of the picturesque Heaton Park. A fairly hilly course set out on the main footpaths giving some stunning views of the park, golf course and the Hall. The event has an amazing atmosphere with plenty to keep friends and family occupied.

Meeting point

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we’ll  be operating a staggered start time in 2021 to ensure your safety on event day. Additional start times may become available as/when needed. 

 

The start line is in the centre of the park, between the tram museum and boating lake.

Manchester City Council are now operating a Pay & Display system in all car parks so please ensure you arrive within plenty of time to purchase a ticket. Card payment and Pay by Phone options also available.

We ask that you car share where possible due to the large number of visitors to the park.

The nearest metro station is Heaton Park. Trams run regularly from the City Centre and other destinations.

There is a gate into the park directly opposite the station. There are also several bus routes which stop at Heaton Park.

Supporter / spectator access

Inviting your friends and family to support you on the day is a great idea, they can share in the joy with you as you cross the finish line and ring the bell.  They can also help you with those important things, like holding your belongings whilst you walk, jog or run round the course! 

Please note, whilst we hope we can open our events to families and friends supporting on the day, this may not be possible due to government guidelines around COVID-19. We will update on this nearer the time.
