Europe's leading 10k running event, broadcast live on BBC, will return to the heart of the city on Sunday 22 May and is an event not to be missed.

22 May 2016

Since 2003 more than a quarter of a million people have taken part and this year will welcome the 300,000th runner across the finish line.

Not only will runners pass some of Manchester's most iconic sights, including Old Trafford, the home of Manchester United, all finishers will also receive a brand new technical t-shirt in their finishers' packs. 

This North West 10K run has grown into a fantastic weekend for the whole family, including the Junior & Mini Great Manchester Run and the Great CityGames Manchester - a unique elite event that attracts some of the world's top athletes on a purpose-built track in the heart of the city centre.
