Welcome to the Manchester YMCA Harriers

Coronavirus update, 14th November 2020

Following the announcement of new national restrictions from 5th November, we have suspended all of our group running activities until further notice. We will look to resume our track sessions and group runs as soon as we're allowed to!

Coach Jen has put together some alternative speedwork sessions which you can do on your own or with a friend during the restrictions.

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!
