The ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon is a flat, fast race around the city which is great both for first-timers and those looking to beat their personal best.

We had a fantastic time in 2018, with our runners telling us that:

The support from the crowds was incredible!

... and ...

It was an amazing opportunity, it’s put me in touch with other Ataxia UK supporters both from within this event and people running other marathons. It was an immense honour to represent Ataxia UK at the marathon, and created great opportunities to talk to others about ataxia both as a charity and how it affects my family personally. I also know it meant a LOT to my dad, and I wouldn’t have had the courage to be there without you guys.

... and ...

Communication was frequent, clear and supportive from Ataxia UK. I really appreciated being put in touch with the other runners as marathon training had felt a little lonely at times, but it was reassuring to know others were going through what I was going through.
