The Asics Manchester Marathon 2018 was a huge success and one Trafford was proud to have, with hundreds of spectators lining every rod helping to not only create a carnival style atmosphere but also to help the runners get through the 26.2 miles of running.
We congratulate everybody who took part and hope the state of Trafford’s roads will not put you off running again in the half marathon which will take place in October here in Trafford.
The leader and eventual winner looked a class act, we first saw the man in Sale running with a great style, making it look easy at mile 16! he was the same when he turned the corner on the A56 in Stretford and eventually went on to be the winner of the race under 2 hours and 22 minutes.

We have to say a big thanks not only to the runners but the volunteers that marshalled the route who worked for free, standing up for all them hours dealing with residents and many questions asked about the event, we are told by a marshal all they got was a running jacket and £3.
