Public transport


The nearest tram stop is the appropriately-named Wythenshawe Park tram stop, which is in Metrolink zone 3 on the Manchester Airport line.

The tram stop is a 10-minute walk from the start area. From the tram stop, head left down Wythenshawe Road (past the Gardeners Arms pub). The park is on the opposite side of the road once you get to the tree-lined section of road. You can go through the first gate you come to and follow the path through the woods to the start area.


The 101 bus goes from Manchester city-centre, down Princess Parkway. Get off the bus at Palatine Road/Britannia Hotel and then follow the road under Princess Parkway. Bear left onto Wythenshawe Road and the park is on your left. The start area is at the far-end of the park from here - about a 15-minute walk.

The 101, 102, 103 and 108 will take you back to Manchester; these go from the stop on the Manchester-bound slip-road onto Princess Parkway.


Men's toilets, showers and changing are in the quadrant building in the car park next to the athletics track.

Women's toilets and changing are in the building inside the track area. There are no showers available for women.

There are additional portaloo toilet facilities at the track.
