On Sunday 26 May 2013, a team of five runners raised £800 for World Land Trust by running the BUPA Great Manchester Run, a 10km race through the heart of Manchester.
The race starts and ends in the city centre, and takes in Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium and the Manchester outpost of the Imperial War Museum. In recent years, tens of thousands of spectators and a live TV audience have witnessed the world’s greatest distance runner Haile Gebrselassie win the Great Manchester Run on four occasions, with Britain's Jo Pavey winning the women’s event twice.
If you are interested in raising funds for WLT by running in a distance race please contact the Donations Team as there may be charity places available at other events.
If you take up one of our guaranteed charity places on a BUPA Great Run there is a registration fee of £15, and we ask runners to pledge to raise £175 in sponsorship.
