Meet Up Spot Y Club, Liverpool Road, Manchester, M3 4JR
Beginner / Road

Meet at the Y Club reception at 6:30pm. After a warm-up in the Castlefield Arena, we’ll head out down Ordsall Lane to Salford Quays. The Centenary Bridge route is the longest at about 8 miles; the MediaCityUK route is pretty much exactly 10K and we have a 5-mile route option available if you don’t want to run that far.

From the Y Club, we’ll head across Regent Road and down Ordsall Lane. We’ll then head over the Manchester Ship Canal and down Trafford Wharf Road to the Imperial War Museum.

The Centenary Bridge route continues straight on here and then onto Trafford Park Road, across Centenary Bridge and then back up to MediaCityUK.

The MediaCityUK route turns off to the right down the side of the Imperial War Museum, then over the bridge and through MediaCityUK.

From MediaCityUK, the route then takes us around Erie Basin and then past the Lowry Theatre and up the side of Ontario Basin, before making our way back over to Ordsall Lane and back to the Y Club to complete the 10K route.

The 5-mile route turns off at the Imperial War Museum but cuts across the bottom of Erie Basin rather than going around it.
