Great Manchester Run - Sunday 20 May


The Simply Health Manchester half marathon is taking place in the city centre on Sunday 20 May.

If you're taking part in the run - good luck! We'll be cheering you on - and of course, there's no better way of getting to the event by bus, whether you're taking part or watching from the sidelines. 

Lots of the roads around the city centre will be closed whilst the event takes place, which means that our buses on the Witchway and Red Express will need to use different routes to get in and out of the city.

From the first bus on Sunday until around 4pm, the Witchway and Red Express won't be able to pick up or drop off at any of the normal stops in the city centre, including Deansgate, Princess Street or Chorlton Street.

Buses will start and finish from Stand TE at Stevenson Square, and from there, the next stop in both directions will be Great Ducie Street, next to Strangeways. 

Unforutnately, we won't be able to pick up or drop off at any other stops whilst the event is taking place.

We're sorry for any inconvenience this might cause - follow and tweet us @burnleybuses and @blackburnbusco for the latest.
