The Therme Manchester Marathon 2022 will be something special for spectators as England Athletics chose the event to be a commonwealth qualifier.
This means the big names in athletics will compete in this race, long distance international athletes competing, running down our roads will be something special for everyone and may even help inspire others to take up running.
It is hoped that the government will have realised Omicron is not dangerous to anyone and the event will get underway with fingers crossed that the weather will be nice on the day.
The Commonwealth games get underway in Birmingham next year 2022 and athletes from all around the country will be competing in this race.
