Manchester Marathon 2023 photos: 104 brilliant pictures of runners plus 2023 results checker

Thousands of runners took part in the 2023 Manchester Marathon and our photographer was there to capture these superb photos.

More than 28,000 runners hit the streets of Manchester for the 2023 adidas Manchester Marathon.

Athletes got off their marks in waves on Sunday (16 April), starting with the elite wheelchair racers at 8.55am, through to the final wave which set off at around 11am, with tens of thousands of supporters lining the route to cheer them on. After a few days of rather blustery conditions, the weather was kind to competitors on Sunday morning, with a cloudy and mild start to the day.

The fastest finisher on the day was Ignas Brasevicius in 02:16:27, with Bret Crossley winning the wheelchair marathon on 01:49:39.

You can see the times for all the fastest runners here, and you can check all the 2023 Manchester Marathon results via this tool on the marathon website, with times added around 45 minutes after runners complete the course.
