IMPORTANT EVENT UPDATE

We would like to advise entrants that the Junior & Mini 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 are securing a new date and the event will now go ahead on either Saturday 5th or Sunday 6th September and we'll confirm as soon as we can. 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 the new date we will offer a refund of your entry fee. To request a refund please contact us by email at: manchester2020@greatrun.org

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

Thank you for your patience and continued support at this challenging time.

Your Run Number

The run numbers will start to arrive with participants approx. 2 weeks prior to the event weekend. They are posted to the address that you entered when you registered for the event. 

We are unable to send run numbers outside of the UK as we cannot guarantee their safe delivery. We will make them available for collection from our information marquee on the day. 

You don’t need to register on the day, once you’ve filled in the back of the run number and attached it to your front (with safety pins) you are good to go, you can go straight to the start assembly area for your start time.
