We are extremely pleased to be able to offer the run at a hugely discounted £20 per person (down from £38) for staff and students of the University only. The £20 will include a free purple technical running t-shirt which we will expect all participants to wear on the day. Information on T-shirts and event tokens will be sent to you nearer the time.

See SPORT website for full details, FAQs and links to:

Don’t forget there are a number of other activities that all staff and students can get involved with in the New Year, which will help with your fitness and make the run more enjoyable:


As part of the run, we are hoping to encourage all participants to raise £100k in the 10k for charity! Our charity partners are Marie Curie, Manchester Royal Children’s Hospital and The British Red Cross.

If all 1000 entrants raise at least £100 each, we will smash this target and really add to the fantastic work the University does towards the social responsibility agenda!

If you would like to raise money with the run, please sign up with our RAG team to either select to run for one of our charity partners, or sign up with your own choice. Please note that if you select a charity partner from this page, this will register you with that charity. Anyone who has made their own arrangements to run for their own chosen charity will still have to sign up on to this link to be part of the UoM fundraising community and receive support from our RAG team.

Here’s a little taste of what’s to come - enjoy!

Kind regards
