Experience the first-ever Manchester Media City 5K relay festival on Thursday 12 September 2024 and raise funds for The Christie Charity. Gather a team of 5 colleagues and walk, jog, or run the 5K relay route.

The relay loops around Media City, over the canal, past the Imperial War Museum and the ITV and BBC television studios.

The relay is for teams of 5 people from the same company. Teams can enter one of 4 categories which include:

  • Relay race – women
  • Relay race – men
  • Relay race – mixed
  • Walk

All routes are 5 kilometres. In the relay race categories, one team member will run at a time. In the walk category, the entire team walks the route together. Individuals and teams will be times and leaderboards enable teams to track and support participants.

After the race, you can enjoy the event festival, where there will be food on sale , DJs and live music. It will be the place to relax and socialise until you’re ready to get back on your feet!

If you are a business interested in entering a team and raising money for The Christie Charity, please email us at the-christie.appeals.companies@nhs.net and we will be more than happy to support you with your fundraising.
