The Greater Manchester Marathon would like to invite elite runners to take part free of charge. The course is a very flat course with only 55m of gain along the whole course giving you a fantastic opportunity to get a very fast time.
We would like to hear from runners who have achieved the following times in 2011/12, evidence will be required to gain free entry.
2011/12 Half Marathon under 1:09:00 for men & 1:19:00 for women
2011/12 Marathon time under 2:30:00 for men & under 2:50:00 for women
The course has been officially measured and we are hoping that the course will produce some very fast times.
