Simplyhealth Junior and Mini Great Manchester Run

The North West's biggest and most popular children's running event returns to the Etihad Campus on Saturday 27 May and entries are NOW OPEN!

Located less than two miles from the city centre, the Etihad Campus is home to Manchester City Football Club and a number of other sporting venues.

We love our young runners too and have 2 shorter distance runs 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.


The Course

The Simplyhealth Junior and Mini Great Manchester Run will be heading back to the Etihad Campus for the 2017 events. The Mini course is approximately 1.5k and the Junior run is a 2.3k course. Please note: the courses may be subject to change.

The course includes a charity cheering point as well as music on the course to give you that little extra boost before you arrive at the finish line.

Look out for our three favourite mascots who will be there at the start to give you a high five!

  • Humphrey the Bear from the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital
  • Reu the Gnu from Reuben's Retreat

Good luck with the training - we'll see you on the start line!
