The Etihad Stadium has its own dedicated Metrolink stop – Etihad Campus. Metrolink runs from the city centre to Etihad Campus, including Piccadilly Station and St Peter’s Square. Journey time for the tram service is less than ten minutes from Piccadilly Station. The Ashton line also serves Etihad Campus
A number of bus routes serve UCFB Etihad Campus from the city centre and outlying areas. These include the 188, 216 and 217 services.
There is a safe, well lit and signposted walking route available from Manchester Piccadilly Station. Follow the ‘City Link’ signs. It will take approximately 25 minutes to walk to the Etihad Stadium from the city centre.
There are a number of bike racks around the stadium. The Club accepts no liability and all bikes are left at their own risk.
If you are driving to the event, please use the postcode M11 3DU. This is Gate 2 off Alan Turing Way by the Tennis & Football Centre. Please note that there will be no access for runners in any other gate.
We will have a secure area where you can leave your baggage. We recommend you bring as little baggage as possible. Your baggage tag is attached to your race number, you simply tear it off and attach to your bag. To collect, show your number to the baggage tent staff and they will help you find your baggage.
There will be toilets on site for you to use, within the stadium.
We recommend bringing your own pre-filled reusable water bottle with you to the event if you would like to take on water during your race. However, we will also have a small water station with water in paper cups if needed during the race. We are limiting the use of single use plastic at the event to align with Etihad Campus’ Sustainability Drive. We will have water available at the finish line for you all to have after your race, alongside your post race goodies!
