We would love to have you join Team Prevent Breast Cancer for this years Great Manchester Run! You can either sign up to run (or walk) at your own pace, or you can join our brand new PINK MARCH and take on the 10k in style by marching around the course in pink tutus, wigs, and anything else pink you can get your hands on. The march will be lead to keep you all together and in unison! So if you fancy something a bit different, this could be for you!

The Course

Starting on Portland Street and finishing on Deansgate, The Great Manchester Run takes in the views of Old Trafford, the Imperial War Museum and The Lowry. You will pass the Coronation Street set and the incredible Beetham Tower, which marks the final leg of the run.

Aqua Pura Water will be available before the run at the water points at Albert Square and Portland Street.

On course there will be two water stations at 5km and 7km.

We are thrilled to be partnering with Albert’s Schloss on the day of the run, who have very kindly offered us a designated area for us to host our runners before and after the run.
