Each year, thousands take to the streets to compete in the Great Manchester Run and Half Marathon.
The Great Manchester Run is the largest 10k in Europe and the atmosphere is electric with live bands, DJs and cheering points en route. Will you join our UK-Med Team in 2020?
For those after more of a challenge, the Half Marathon is also hugely popular. Find out more about the races and their routes here.
How do I sign up?
- If you want to run for UK-Med, please reserve a place on the official Great Run website.
- Then fill in our UK-Med registration form to let us know that you will be running for us.
There are fundraising resources available on the website. You will receive ongoing fundraising support from our Fundraising and Communications team, as well as your own UK-Med running vest to wear on the day. We will be holding a celebration event for all our runners at the end of the run, giving you a chance to meet other UK-Med runners and allowing us to thank you for your support.
What about COVID-19?
The race organisers have moved the event from 24th May to 6th September which is great news for anyone wanting to fit in a little more training. There is a team of UK-Med staff taking part and we’d love for you to join us! Registration is still open for both the 10K and half marathon.
I don’t want to compete. Can I still get involved?
Absolutely – we always need volunteers to help cheer our teams along and welcome them at the celebration event after the Marathon. If you would like to join our welcome team, fill in UK-Med registration form.
