The ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon in Trafford aims to work in harmony with the local culture, by working with local communities in the delivery and legacy of the event, and through the choice of route through the iconic city, which passes many sites of cultural significance. It is the organiser’s intention for the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon in Trafford to generate opportunities for local people and businesses.
We seek to ensure that the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon in Trafford will bring a positive experience for local people, local businesses, spectators, and the participants themselves.
We have worked incredibly hard over the last 8 years to bring a marathon back to Manchester. Over the last 6 years the race has brought in an economic impact of £20million to Greater Manchester; raised £7million for charities; and Xtra Mile Events have donated £175,000 back to community groups who help marshal the event.
