We are delighted to announce that 115 people have chosen to run for Forever Manchester at this year’s Great Manchester 10k Run taking place on Sunday 20th May.

As a result, all of our discounted charity places have now been taken, but should you wish to run for Forever Manchester you can sign up directly at the Great Manchester Run website.

We’d like to say a huge Forever Manchester thank you to staff from the following companies, plus all the individuals who have signed up to raise a minimum of £150 each for us. All money raised will go to fund and support community activity right across Greater Manxchester.
