Rating: 89.2% based on 4 reviews - Rate this Event Now

This sportive generates vital funds for registered charities. Although not mandatory, we also encourage riders to raise sponsorship for their own great causes.  The event sold out last year, oversubscribed almost twice ! We had a 87.5% approval rating (riders who would recommend to others) and 83% said they would be riding again in 2017. Tour de Manc are a not for profit company with no paid employees...all monies raised (less essential costs such as insurance) go to registered charities.

The "Full Manc" Chas Collins Memorial Edition is EPIC/tough with 105 miles and well over 7800ft of climbing - including several severe tests. King of the Mountain and Queen of the mountain prizes will be measured over the Werneth Low Climb, a real leg burner, with iconic views of Manchester as you crest the top. Expect a tough, but an enjoyable ride with varied terrain as you skirt Manchester, cross Cheshire, skirt the edge of the Peak District, the slopes of the Pennines and the rolling hills of North Manchester. Expect to see some amazing scenery and hidden gems and enjoy great camaraderie.

There is a shorter 100km "Half Manc" route, which also includes the Werneth Low climb, but turns back to the finish in the Rochdale hills near Edenfield. Don't be fooled though, his is still a tough challenge.

We will supply 4 drink stops with free energy gels, energy drinks (our sports drinks and gels are supplied by Secret-Training), energy rich food, we will have mechanic stations, first aid cover and we provide sportive photographs. 

It's a long day and post ride, as well as your finisher's medal, we will provide free hot drinks, baked goods, complimentary massages to help with your weary legs and some free photos of your ride ....there's one or two other surprises in a goodie bag as well.

Whilst you ride, your families can enjoy a free day pass to the VirginActive Lancashire Club - swimming pools, steam room, sauna, gym, classes, restaurant and more.  And when you finish the ride, you are welcome to go there and use the facilities too. The ride starts and finishes at the VirginActive Lancashire too, so why not make it a family day.

This ride sold out last year and we were massively oversubscribed with a significant waiting list - we expect the same again this year. There are unlikely to be "on the day" entries.
