Welcome to the Manchester YMCA Harriers

Coronavirus announcement, 16th March 2020

In light of recent government guidelines, the committee have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel all forthcoming club activities.

This includes all Tuesday track sessions, Thursday clubs runs and Sunday marathon training sessions for the foreseeable future.

We will continue to monitor the situation and guidelines, as the country does, and we hope to be running together as a group again as soon as we can.

The announcements today still allow exercise outside and if you feel like running, we encourage you to keep us updated on your activities - but please be sensible. Our members health is our main priority.

Keep safe - and we look forward to our next run together.

We are a friendly running club based at the Y Club in Castlefield, right in the heart of Manchester city centre. If you're looking for a central Manchester running club, then we might just be the one for you!

About us

We are affiliated to England Athletics and we frequently take part in races and other running events. We have club championships in cross-country, road, fell and track disciplines. We particularly enjoy taking part in events where we can run as a team!

We're not just about running; we arrange regular socials in Manchester city centre and we are often found travelling further afield for weekend breaks or longer holidays.

Join us

We run and we do lots of fun stuff besides running. What's not to like?!

Whether you're a practically a pro, just taking your first running steps, mainly interested in the après run, or somewhere in between all three, we'd love for you to join us!

If you like what you see, try us out for size and come and be a part of it!
