The Great Manchester Run is the biggest 10k race in Europe, with more than a quarter of a million people crossing the finish line since 2003.

Running for Forever Manchester is unique as every penny you raise will stay within our region to support the communities and neighbourhoods where our runners live, work and play.

Passing through two of the ten Greater Manchester boroughs Forever Manchester funds (Manchester and Trafford), the Manchester 10k starts on Portland Street and will this year have its 300,000th runner cross the finish line on Deansgate, which could be you!

The 10k passes some of Greater Manchester’s most iconic sites, including Old Trafford, the new home of everyone’s favourite soap; Coronation Street, the Imperial War Museum and more, finishing the race passing by the iconic Beetham Tower.

It’s just 10 weeks until the Great Manchester Run, which is one week for every kilometre and still plenty of time to get training and successfully finish the race.

Forever Manchester is delighted to offer our supporters a limited amount of discounted places for this year’s 10k. Priced at £25 instead of £38, sign up today to begin raising money for Forever Manchester, the charity that funds and supports local people doing extraordinary things every day.
