The Simplyhealth Great Manchester Run 10k returns to the heart of Manchester on Sunday 20 May 2018. Join Team Stroke and thousands of runners for this celebrated 10k, now in its 16th year. This is a special day in the sporting calendar and demonstrates the spirit, determination and togetherness of the city.

All athletic abilities welcome.

Starting on Portland Street, take in the sights of Manchester City Centre, Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium, the Imperial War Museum and The Lowry. You'll also pass the famous cobbles of Coronation Street’s new set and finish near the iconic Beetham Tower.

Join Team Stroke and you'll receive:

  • a fundraising pack
  • a t-shirt
  • regular training emails       
  • fundraising advice
  • hospitality at our charity stand on race day.

There is a £25 registration fee and we ask you to commit to fundraising a minimum of £165.

Own place

You can purchase your own place directly from the Great Run website. You will then need to fill out our 'own place' form. There is no registration fee or minimum fundraising commitment.


If this event wasn't exciting enough, the one and only Sir Mo Farah will be joining tens of thousands of runners on the start line of the 10k as he continues his transition from the track to the road after retiring from stadium competition over the summer. This is your chance to run alongside him in one of the largest 10k road races in Europe.
