Welcome to the Manchester YMCA Harriers

We are a small and friendly running club in Manchester city centre. We are based at the Y Club in Castlefield. If you're looking for a Manchester city centre running club, then we might just be the one for you!

We hold regular training runs twice per week:

  • Tuesday evenings, 7:00pm: Track session at the Manchester Regional Athletics Arena (Sportcity)
  • Thursday evenings, 6:30pm: Group run from the Y Club

We also hold marathon training sessions on Sunday mornings in the build up to the spring marathon season. Check out our upcoming events for full details of everything that we're up to.

We are affiliated to England Athletics and we frequently take part in races and other running events. We have club championships in cross-country, road, fell and track disciplines. We particularly enjoy taking part in events where we can run as a team!

We're not just about running; we arrange regular socials in Manchester city centre and we are often found travelling further afield for weekend breaks or longer holidays.
