Manchester Univ Sports Ground Course Map

The course is a mix of grass, trail and woodland running (no tarmac). We recommend that you bring both studs and trail shoes and given the forecast (possible snow), that you then decide on shoe choice prior to your race.

Manchester University Playing Fields/Kenworthy Woods.

Willenhall Road, Wythenshawe, Manchester M23 0BD.

There is generous on site parking, please do not park on the drive leading into the fields, this is a narrow approach and cars will be leaving, in addition to arriving.

Direction details are below. We understand that “Sat Navigation ” offers a variety of routes. The key part is to prepare your route prior to leaving.  M23 0BD. Google maps offers the best route.

From the M60, leave at junction 5 and join the A5103 (Princess Parkway) southbound (signs to Wythenshawe). Immediately leave the A5103 to join the B5167. On leaving turn right (this will take you under the A5103) onto the B5167 (Wythenshawe Road).

To get to the sports ground from Wythenshawe Road (B5167) turn left/right coming from the west/east (if you have just left the A5103 it’s a right turn) onto Sale Road (B5166). Take a right off Sale Road onto Yewtree Lane and then left onto Willenhall Road. Continue along Willenhall Road under the motorway. Negotiate a sharp left turn after the motorway underpass and continue along the road to reach the parking area and pavilion.
