Manchester Midnight Walk

Some people walk to remember a loved one, others walk for fun, but everyone that takes part in our event is walking for St Ann’s Hospice.

The course

The 10km route starts at midnight from Manchester Central and takes in some of Manchester’s most famous landmarks including the Hilton Hotel, Old Granada Studios, Spinningfields, MEN Arena, the Northern Quarter and past the Universities. The route is fairly flat and on footpaths and ends back at Manchester Central.

On the night

Manchester Central is open from 9pm, where you can enjoy the evening’s entertainment, decorate your official t-shirt, and collect your goodie bag full of freebies and supplies to help you on your way. As you cross the finish line you can collect your medal to celebrate your achievement!

  • Groups (5 or more people) – £15 per person
