Looking for a Challenge?

21 Aug 2008

Cycle the Lancashire Loop or run the London Marathon.

The British Red Cross have two new, exciting challenges coming up and we would love to get University of Manchester staff involved.

Lancashire Loop Cycle Challenge
28 September 2008

There are three different routes around the stunning Lancashire countryside, so everybody can get involved.

These are:

  • a family-friendly 26 miles
  • a more taxing 54 miles
  • not for faint hearted - the 100 mile route, ascending to 500 feet!

Limited places are still available. It costs just £10 to enter and there is a minimum sponsorship target of £75 per person.

And if cycling isn't your thing...

Flora London Marathon 2009
26 April 2009

Make 2009 your Marathon year! We are now recruiting for the London marathon on 26 April 2009. Places are extremely limited and fill up really quickly, so if you are interested please contact us as soon as possible. It costs £100 to enter and we ask that you raise £1,800 to support the work of the British Red Cross at home and abroad.


If you are interested in participating in either event, please contact:
