Great Manchester 10k

Begin your running journey with Team Red Cross by taking part in the Great Manchester 10k run.

The route starts at Portland Street and offers you amazing views of Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium, the award-winning Imperial War Museum and The Lowry. The most significant landmark will be Beetham Tower, the 47-storey skyscraper right next to the finishing line.


This is the perfect event for first time runners aged 15 or above, or runners who have a 10K personal best to beat. The route is filled with cheer points, hydration stations and bands on the run to carry you to the finishing line!

Why run the 2018 Great Manchester 10k?

As part of Team Red Cross you will be supported through every part of your event preparation. Our National Events team (Kerry, Karina, Sarah, Maddy and Julia) will be on-hand to encourage you with your fundraising and your training and to thank you for all of your hard work.

All Team Red Cross participants will receive:

  • Dedicated support including training plans
  • A fundraising pack, full of tips and advice, plus professional one-to-one support to help you raise as much as you can
