Welcome to the Manchester YMCA Harriers

Coronavirus update, 3rd August 2020

We are still only able to offer limited group running sessions, however, track is back from Tuesday 4th August!

In line with the current guidance from England Athletics, Public Health England and limitations imposed on us by host venues, these sessions will be for a limited number of people. You must sign up in advance for each session and must adhere to social distancing practices throughout.

Groups will be led by individual members of the Club. Group runs will commence from venues across Manchester; track sessions will be held at Longford Park.

These sessions will be listed on the Events pages of this website. You will need to sign up for each event in advance through the link on the event page; places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Track is back! Starting on Tuesday 4th August, we will hold two track sessions for groups of up to six people at Longford Park. Check out this blog post for more information.

Coach Jen has also come up with some non-track speedwork sessions which you can try at a local park or other suitable location.

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!
