As an England Athletics affiliated club, Manchester Triathlon Club has an extremely active running section. Our members compete in a wide variety of running events, either as competition in its own right and as training for multi-sport events.
Local Running Events
Below we’ve included a selection of running events that members like to compete in, so you are always likely to see a few friendly faces. Please use our facebook closed group to share what races you are thinking about/have entered so we can encourage a bit of MTC team support and it also makes racing a little more pleasurable with friends!
