We would like to advise entrants that the Great Manchester Run can no longer take place on 24th May.  The decision has been taken following government advice on slowing the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). In addition, organisers have acknowledged the increased pressure on public services that the coronavirus outbreak is causing.

We are happy to say that we have secured a new date and the event will now go ahead on Sunday 6th September. We understand the commitment and dedication you make when you enter one of our events and we would not take any decision to cancel or postpone lightly.

All entries will be transferred to the new date and entrants will receive an email with full details. If you are unable to participate on 6th September we will offer a refund of your entry fee, less an administrative fee of £5 as outlined in the event terms and conditions at the point of booking. This fee covers some of but not all of the costs we have already been committed, such as fees charged to us to process the original booking, staff time and supplier costs, and third party payment providers. This is very much in line with other event and ticket providers across the industry. Your refund will be credited to the debit or credit card you used at the point of payment. To request a refund please contact us by email at: by 30 June.

We hope you will not be too disappointed at waiting a little longer and we look forward to seeing you on the start line on 6th September.
