Great Manchester Run

Manchester, M2 5DB

Sunday 24 May 20 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Great Manchester Run is not only the North West’s most popular running event, it’s the biggest 10km run in Europe!

It’s a whole day of sport, starting with the Mini Run (for 3-8 year olds) and Junior Run (for 9-15 year olds), and also including the Half Marathon route through the city centre.

Francis House is looking for supporters of all abilities to take part, whether it’s your very first run or your fiftieth! Take on the challenge for fun, to get fit or in memory of a loved one.

An unforgettable atmosphere awaits you along the route, passing by favourite Manchester landmarks such as Old Trafford, The Imperial War Museum North and Beetham Tower.
