Simplyhealth Junior & Mini Great Manchester Run

The North West's biggest and most popular children's running event returns to Manchester in a brand new city centre location on Sunday 28 May and entries are NOW OPEN!

The Simplyhealth Junior and Mini Great Manchester Run is perfect for children whose parents and guardians are participating in the Simplyhealth Great Manchester Run as the kids runs will start and finish before the 10k.

Sunday 28 May will be a day of running in Manchester for all ages, with every runner experiencing the amazing atmosphere the city has to offer.

We love our young runners too and these two shorter distance runs are perfect for children aged between 3 – 15 years old.

You don't need to be the next Mo Farah or Paula Radcliffe! All Junior and Mini runners will receive their very own running t-shirt, a goodie-filled finisher’s pack and that all-important medal.
