Have you entered the Greater Manchester 10k run yet?

(23 March 2017)

The University is aiming to get over 3,000 students and staff running in the Greater Manchester 10k Run which takes place on Sunday, 28 May 2017. It means we’ll have our very own University purple starting wave. 

If you are a staff member you can get a discounted rate of £25 (instead of the usual £38!) and you’ll also get a FREE purple technical running T-shirt too – so it really will be a purple wave. 

Entry deadline

Make sure you get your entry in by Tuesday, 4 April to join the Purple Wave. 

There’s lots of training support for everyone taking part, including running plans for you to follow and a number of running groups across campus for all levels of fitness. So whether you’re already an avid runner, or you don’t think running’s for you, why not give it a go?

 This year, we’re raising money for two charities: Equity and Merit Scholarships and Big Change (Manchester Ending Homelessness).
