MAN UTD Official Car Park of ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon

Manchester United FC have a huge number of very convenient and secure car parking spaces available.

The race village will be situated at Emirates Old Trafford, a short walk from MUFC's Old Trafford stadium.

You can pre book your car parking tickets via this link - select the date of the half marathon and follow the links to order your ticket. 

The MUFC car parks are the only official event car parks. Access routes to the car parks will be communicated in the Race Information Pack prior to the event and all the routes will be clearly signed and key junctions will be stewarded to help ensure ease of access of event day.

Tickets are £10 and can be booked in advance or paid for on the day.

To access the car parks on the day, please follow the directions in the race booklet. These take account of the road closures and diversions on the day. Satnav directions will not take these into account.
