Want to take on your first 10K or Half Marathon but are worried about the difficulty? The Great Manchester Run is for you!

The Great Manchester Run is the nation’s favourite 10K running event, popular among world class athletes and beginners alike. With its party atmosphere, bands spotted on various parts of the route and the amazing crowd support that almost rivals the crowds during the London Marathon(Link to London Marathon 2021 page), the Great Manchester Run event is perfect for those who simply want to jog along as well as those trying to run as fast as they can. The course passes the iconic Old Trafford football stadium, and finishes right in the heart of this fantastic city. Now with a Half Marathon as well if 10K isn’t challenge enough for you!

I love taking on challenges, it’s a huge positive that I can raise awareness of what blind people can do! It felt great to raise so much money for Henshaws as I’ve benefitted hugely from their support.
