Great Manchester Run - 10k

Great Manchester Run - 10k

Sunday 28th May


Europe’s biggest 10k running event, the Great Manchester Run, is taking place on Sunday 28th May 2017.

Forever Manchester’s charity places have now all been taken. If, however, you would like to support us by running the Great Manchester Run, you can sign up on the Great Run website. Let us know you’re fundraising for us via email and we’ll do all we can to support you!

The 10k will go through two boroughs of Greater Manchester: Manchester and Trafford. Forever Manchester funds all ten boroughs of Greater Manchester and the money you raise on the day will support local people doing extraordinary things together across our region.

Last year our runners raised over £7,000 and we’re hoping to beat that this year. Take a look at the video below to see how running for round ‘ere can make a real difference:

JustGiving is an easy way to raise money for Forever Manchester during your 10k fundraising efforts. Head to our handy guide for tips on how to maintain and create your page.


For the first time this year, Great Run will also be putting on “a new, exciting 13.1 mile challenge” – the 2017 Simplyhealth Great Manchester Run Half Marathon course – at the same time as the 10k! Although Forever Manchester does not have charity places available for the half marathon, we’d love to support you in your half marathon if you choose to raise money for us. Find out more about the Simplyhealth Great Manchester Run Half Marathon course and how to enter with Great Run here.
