Child Action Northwest

Great Manchester Run Half Marathon

Date: 26th May 2024

Minimum Age: 17

Portland St, Manchester M1 3LF

Join us for another spectacular running celebration in the heart of Manchester with the AJ Bell Great Manchester Run. The AJ Bell Great Manchester Run is the city’s original and best-loved running event – over 99% of runners say they’d recommend it to a friend. And in true Mancunian style, it’s a party from start to finish, with a high-energy soundtrack, live music and entertainment zones at every turn – plus, some of the loudest and most enthusiastic local support we’ve seen anywhere in the UK. However, it’s also a testament to the strength and generous spirit of this incredible city, with thousands of charity runners taking on the challenge of a 10k or half marathon each year to raise millions for charity.

Child Action Northwest support children, vulnerable adults, and families, ensuring that when life presents difficult circumstances, we’re there every step of the way to make sure they get the support they need. We passionately believe that everyone has the right to achieve their full potential and we work to improve the wellbeing and quality of life of young people, who have multiple needs, may live chaotic lives, and often have ongoing or emerging mental health needs.
We’ve grown from a small local charity to one that now works with over 15,000 people per year! Looking after young people has been a huge part of our history, ever since we began life at Blackburn Orphanage 130 years ago.
And just like we did a hundred years ago, we believe that everyone has the right to achieve their full potential, whatever their background or circumstances.
