The organisers of the AJ Bell Great Manchester Run released a map of road closures for the event.

The event, which includes a half marathon and a 10K, returns to the streets this weekend on Sunday.

Although the start line and the finish line are in the city centre, both the half marathon and the 10K take in parts of Old Trafford and Trafford Park.

To allow the runners to compete in safe conditions a number of roads in these areas are to be closed.

The road closures are from 6am to 6pm although some last for a shorter time.

All of the information is available on the AJ Bell Great Manchester Run website.

It reads: "When travelling to the event, we suggest making use of the public transport options available on the day. Visit the Transport for Greater Manchester website to plan your journey by car, train, tram, bus, bike or on foot.Β 

"For live travel updates on the day, follow @OfficialTfGM on Twitter. We strongly recommend that you leave plenty of time to get to the start line as there will be a number of road closures in place for the weekend."
