Great Manchester Run 2018 – Sunday, 20 May 2018

Show your ❤ for Manchester in more ways than one.

Join the Great Manchester Run and race around the sights of Manchester, be part of a unique mass gathering of University supporters and friends and support disadvantaged teenagers in the city, all on one amazing day and all for free!

Join The University of Manchester’s Purple Wave with one of our registered charity places and you will be able to take part completely free of charge – we’ll even throw in a free t-shirt for you! All we ask in return is that you raise £100 to support young people in Greater Manchester access a world-class University education regardless of their financial and social background.

We’ll support you every step of the way, with a fundraising tool kit and cheering points on the day. Every mile you run and every penny you raise will mean that talented students from all backgrounds can make the most of their vast potential.
