For everyone who has signed up to run for Forever Manchester at the Manchester 10k Run on Sunday 20th May 2018, we’d like say a huge thank you.

Running Packs

All runners should start receiving their running packs sent directly from the Great Run. This includes your race number, running chip, start time (indicated by the appropriate wave you have been allocated) and key information about the run itself. If you have not received your pack by Monday 14th May, please email us at and we will follow this up on your behalf.

Forever Manchester Running T-shirts

The Forever Manchester breathable, moisture-wicking Run T-shirts are being sent out from Wednesday 9th May, to be received in time for the big day.

The Forever Manchester Running T-shirts have been kindly paid for and sponsored by Kay Johnson Gee, who are a multi-award winning chartered accounts and business advisors, providing expert advice in taxation, corporate finance, audit, accounts, payroll and insolvency.

This is the Place for friends, family and colleagues to watch the run from

Kay Johnson Gee have agreed to host a meeting place in the car park of their offices (pictured below) between 12.30pm and 3pm on day of the 10k run, for friends, family and colleagues to gather to cheer the runners on. The run passes by their office at 1 City Road East, Manchester, M15 4PN, which is ideally located near the start line and a short walk to the finish line.

As the 115 Forever Manchester runners, will be starting the run at various time, we will not be arranging a formal meet up for the runners before or after the run, but if you are planning to meet up with fellow runners before-hand please take a few photos and post them on twitter, and include @4EVERManchester and #FM10K.

Likewise please share with us any photos and information about your preparation for the run, and links to your JustGiving pages so we can share with our 20,000 followers.
