Chorlton Traders

Working together in Chorlton

On 16 April 2023, the Manchester Marathon will mean road closures in Chorlton.

Manchester & Trafford will be welcoming around 24,000 participants aiming to achieve their personal goal of completing a marathon, as well as raising money for both local and national charities.  Last April saw 24,000 people take part and raise over £1.9 million for the dedicated event charities, as well as fundraising for other local Manchester and national causes. The event also saw a £5.4 million boost to the local economy.

The traffic management planning with the councils & Transport for Greater Manchester is ongoing, but we can confirm the pictured route, which is very similar to the 2022 event. It’s likely that roads in question will be closed from early morning until early evening.

The race will come into Chorlton from the West – along Edge Lane, then Wilbraham Road. It will take a left at the Four Banks and then head northwards up Manchester Road, before going up Seymour Grove and the finish line at Lancashire County Cricket Club on Warwick Road.

It’s a brilliant event and it’s great that it comes through our district centre, so come along, line the route and help cheer on the athletes!  More information at
