Coronavirus and Great Run Events

Press release from the Great Run team

As everyone is well aware, the COVID-19 outbreak means serious disruption across every part of our lives. As things stand, many of most of their events are affected and may not be able to take place as planned.

They  would like to advise you that the Great Manchester Run, which was scheduled for 24 May and the Junior and Mini Great Manchester Run, which was scheduled for 23 May can no longer take place as planned.  This is based on advice that to slow the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) events of this type should be postponed.

They are happy to say that they have secured a new date the Great Manchester Run will now go ahead on 6 September. The Junior and Mini Great Manchester Run will be rescheduled to the same weekend on either 5 or 6 September, with the exact date and time still to be decided.

They understand the commitment and dedication you make when you enter one of their events and we would not take any decision to cancel or postpone lightly. They love delivering our events and they work hard to make sure their participants can enjoy them in a safe and happy environment.

All entries will be transferred to the new date and entrants will receive an email with full details.

If you are unable to participate on the new date they will offer a refund of your entry fee, less an admin fee of £5.

They hope you will not be too disappointed at waiting a little longer and they look forward to seeing you on the start line in September.

Thank you for your patience and continued support at this challenging time.
