Our first Purple Wave events of 2023 are our 2.5k and 5k organised runs on Wednesday, 1 March at Platt Fields Park

Purple Wave 2.5k and 5k events

We want as many staff and students running, walking or jogging as possible to join us as part of our Purple Wave community.

It doesn’t matter if you have never taken part in an organised run before or if you are a seasoned runner - this event is for everyone.

Timings of waves:

  • 12:20pm – 5k
  • 1:30pm – 2.5k
  • 2:15pm – 5k

Registration is via the Students' Union website under the Events sections. Entry costs £3 (+ £5 if you would like to purchase a purple t-shirt to run in). Colleagues should use the ‘Public’ option.

Once registered, you will receive further event day information, have access to training plans and support and hear first about future Purple Wave events.
