Donate your Great Manchester Run registration fee to Re-write Cancer or request a refund

Unfortunately, in light of the current situation, the University will not be entering a Purple Wave into this year’s Great Manchester Run. If you haven’t already done so, you can find out about and sign up to our first ever free Virtual Purple Wave on 6 September 2020 here.

We will, of course, be happy to provide you with a full refund of your Great Manchester Run registration fee. But if you are able to, please consider donating your registration fee to Re-write Cancer. If you’re able to do this, you’ll play a part in creating a top cancer research facility, right here in Manchester.

Please complete this very short form to tell us if you would like to donate your registration fee to Re-write Cancer, or if you’d prefer to request a refund.
