Join the unforgettable atmosphere along the route passing by Manchester’s favourite landmarks including Old Trafford Stadium, Imperial War Museum and Beetham Tower, lined with crowds of supporters cheering you on!

The 2018 event saw over 200 Francis House supporters take on the Great Manchester Run, helping to raise over £40,000 in profit for the hospice. Check out our Gallery of images  from the run!
