Starting and finishing at the iconic Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground, this award winning event has been named the UK’s flattest, fastest and friendliest marathon. Whether you're out to beat a personal best or taking on the challenge of a marathon for the first time, the race follows a loop starting and is a flat course, offering the chance for achieving a good time.

  • Lots of support. We're not a huge charity, which means we can be there for our runners on a more personal level. We're always happy to help wherever we can.
  • Railway Children running vest. You might not spot loads out on the course, but our runners wear them with pride knowing they're part of a special community that's changing children's lives.
  • Training plan. We want to help you feel fully prepared for your event.
  • Fundraising handbook. We have lots of resources to make your fundraising simple and a success!

Why run for Railway Children?

Over the last 20 years we have helped make things better for over 270,000 street children. Better tonight, tomorrow, next week and next year. But we’re only just getting started.

We need you to join our fight for children who have nowhere to go and no-one to turn to. With your help we can give more children a future and keep them safe - for good.
