BUPA Great Manchester Run
The BUPA Great Manchester Run is a 10km race through the heart of Manchester with great atmosphere, live bands and cheering crowds all along the route.
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 the Great Manchester Run, or would like more information before making up your mind, please contact Anne Clifford on firstname.lastname@example.org or call her on 01986 874422 on Wednesdays and Fridays. If you would like one of our guaranteed charity places there is a registration fee of £15, and we ask our runners to pledge to raise £175 in sponsorship.
It is also possible to secure a place through the public entry system, though these are likely to sell out quickly. Visit the Bupa Great Run website to register, and then let Anne know you’d like to run for us. If you secure your own place in this way, you don’t need to make a fundraising pledge.
