If you are a running fanatic then Xtra Mile Events organize three big races throughout the season. Start off the year with a warm up event on the famous Oulton Park Race Course at the ASICS Oulton Park Half Marathon / 10K. This will be the ultimate training if you want to participate in the award winning ASICS GREATER MANCHESTER MARATHON. This marathon has been characterized as the flattest, fastest, and friendliest course in the UK. 26.2 miles is a big accomplishment so experience it with great on course support. Finally, closing out the season you can enter in the Manchester Half Marathon which is 13.1 miles of fun.
