As an England Athletics affiliated club, Man Tri 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. On this page we've included information about events that members like. We have a dedicated page regarding the Manchester Area Cross Country league which I would recommend all members take part in: Cross Country

Our running section is organised by our Running Coordinator Sonia Harris who maintains this section  of the site.  To contact Sonia please email:

Son & Jude

Amongst other things Sonia handles the member affiliations with England Athletics. If you want to compete in running events/leagues for Man Tri then you need to pay the small affiliation fee. Click here for more details.


Within the club we operate a number of track running sessions on Monday and Wednesday evenings at Longford Park, Athletics Stadium, Chorlton. Track running sessions are aimed at providing the highest quality workout of your training programme, under supervision of coaches, who will also help work on technique and form, through a number of specific run drills appropriate to your ability. We have three groups running according to your current running form- so you will find one of these suitable. Please see the training > sessions > run track for more details : Run (Track) Longford Park Stadium

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.  I have tried to add in 2016 dates but please check race websites/ Runners World etc for confirmation/ registering etc. 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!!
