The Junior and Mini Great Manchester Run has been postponed until Saturday 5 September. 

Great Run has made this decision following Government advice that all events of this type should be postponed to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

An official statement about the event postponement can be found on the Great Run website

We’d like to thank all of our amazing runners for their dedication in training and fundraising for the Great Manchester Run. Our events team will be in touch with all our runners to discuss your options.

The Junior and Mini Great Manchester Run is the UK’s biggest and best junior running event. Young runners of all abilities will have the opportunity to put their best foot forward!

This year, the event is heading back to Sportcity, giving the children taking part the chance to enjoy a day of events. The courses cover distances of 1.5k for ages 3 to 8 and 2.5k for ages 9 to 15, so there really is something for everyone!

Want a place?

Registration for the 2020 Junior and Mini Great Manchester Run is now open! To secure your child's place, visit the Junior and Mini Great Manchester Run website.

Don’t forget to let us know that your child would like to support The Christie so we can send them a free Christie t-shirt and fundraising pack written by Christie Bear!

Do you have your own place?

If you have secured your child's place and would like to support The Christie, we would love to hear from you! Please register for a fundraising pack and we will send you out your own pack and t-shirt to wear on the day.
