Great Manchester Run 2017

We have places available in the Great Manchester Run 2017.

This has been supported by many runners in the last seven years and we hope next year will be the same.

Please let us know if you would like to run for Melanoma UK by emailing fundraising@melanomauk.org.uk or using the contact form online.

The start line is on Portland Street near the junction with Oxford Street, with the finish line in operation until all runners have crossed the line on Deansgate so all runners will receive their time and Finisher’s Pack.

Look out for Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium, the award-winning Imperial War Museum and The Lowry. You will also pass the famous cobbles of Coronation Street’s new set. Perhaps the most significant landmark will be Beetham Tower, the 47-storey skyscraper which almost marks the finish line.

As part of the Bands on the Run programme, there will be 10 music zones, DJs, live bands and Inspiral Carpets’ legend Clint Boon’s Boon Army stage at the halfway point to lift you for the second leg. There will also be two Key 103 Wall of Sound sections for you at 6k and after 9k, featuring Key 103’s specially chosen playlist to drive you along. If this isn’t enough then the Manchester University Go Zone at 8.5k offers even more music, encouragement and a jelly bean or two for that extra lift.
