The Great Manchester Run is our biggest and best fundraiser every year, and a chance for new and veteran runners to take part in an inspiring event in the UK's most vibrant city. We're looking forward to seeing familiar Kirsty Club faces as well as new runners, joining our campaign community for the first time. We welcome both adult and junior runners.

Then head over to and register for the Great Manchester Junior and Mini Run (23rd May 2020), or the Adult Run (24th May 2020).
