Great Manchester Run – 10k and Half Marathon Sunday 20th May 2018


Support Francis House Children’s Hospice at the North West’s most popular running event in 2018! 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!

2017 saw the Great Manchester Run add a new half marathon distance option – following its success the route will be back in 2018! The 13.1 mile route is ideal for runners wanting to challenge themselves to a longer distance.

The 2017 event saw over 200 Francis House supporters take on the Great Manchester Run, helping to raise over £46,000.

This valued sponsorship money will help us continue our work caring for children, teenagers and young people with life-limiting conditions and offering essential support, friendship and encouragement to their families.
