Great Manchester Virtual Runs

The Great Manchester Run has been reimagined to include two new virtual challenges. Will you run for #TeamStAnns?

August 10, 2020 - September 6, 2020

Great Manchester Run has launched two new virtual events after making the tough decision to cancel the iconic runs around Manchester.

For 2020, Great Manchester Run will be hosting the We Love Manchester Challenge, which includes a junior option and the My Manchester Active Challenge.

The We Love Manchester Challenge began on Monday 10th August and will end on Sunday 6th September 2020. The event will challenge event-goers to complete 15 activities, whether that be a run, jog or walk over 28 days in a distance of your choice.

Tickets cost just £10 to enter and in return, you’ll receive a special edition medal and certificate. This challenge is also available to junior competitors with no cost for signing up. Enter here today.

Alongside this, Great Manchester Run is giving everyone who originally signed up to the official run a chance to earn their medal. From now until the weekend of the event (Sunday 6th September), runners can complete a 10k or half-marathon challenge and receive their medal once they have submitted a screenshot of their run.

You can still sign-up to the My Great Manchester Active Challenge with tickets costing just £10. Enter the challenge today.

Join Team St Ann’s and you’ll get loads of perks, including:

  • A #TeamStAnns running vest
  • A fundraising pack with fun ideas and tips
  • Regular training and nutrition advice
  • A friendly Events Team here to support you all the way

Once you’ve signed up you can create a Just Giving page in aid of St Ann’s and start sharing the link with friends, family and colleagues to help raise vital funds that enable our teams to continue to deliver outstanding care and support to patients and their families.
