Belle Vue Racers

Belle Vue Racers is a UK Athletics-affiliated running club based at Sportcity, East Manchester.   We are a small, friendly, community club, with members from all walks of life.
We take part in many races, both local and further afield, on the road, the trails, through cross-country and even over the occasional fell. No pressure however, only encouragement! Please take a good look around our website to get a feel for us. Even better, drop by and say “Hello” sometime! You’d be very welcome.
