Travel By Public Transport – Metrolink

The Metrolink tram network is the easiest way to get to the race; several cost-effective ticket options are for both runners and spectators. Both Old Trafford and Trafford Bar stops are less than a 10-minute walk from the Athletes Village, Race Village and Start Area. View the Metrolink network map here.

If you’re staying for the weekend, adult Travelcards are available for only £6.20 for travel from 6.00 pm Friday to end-of-service on Sunday evening. This will enable you to make an unlimited number of journeys anywhere on the network throughout the weekend. Travel cards can be purchased from the ticket machines located on all tram stops. For those travelling with their family, it’s just £8.70 for up to two adults and three children to travel all weekend.

Trams run regularly on all lines meaning there is no need to check a timetable – catching the tram really couldn’t be easier, be sure to buy a ticket before you board as tickets aren’t available on the trams themselves.
