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.

Great Manchester Run 10K

Brain injury can challenge every aspect of your life – walking, talking, thinking, and feeling – and the losses can be severe and permanent. It can mean losing both the life you once lived and the person you once were.
We all think 'it will never happen to me', but every year around 350,000 people are admitted to hospital with an acquired brain injury.
That's one every 90 seconds.
Headway is the UK-wide charity that works to improve life after brain injury by providing vital support and information. We also lobby for better support and resources to be made available to people affected by brain injury and work to raise awareness of brain injury and the devastating effects it can have.
A brain injury can happen to anyone, at any time. When it does, Headway is here to help.
By signing up to one of our running events, you are agreeing to fundraise for Headway UK, rather than a local Headway support group or branch. For more information or guidance, please contact events@headway.org.uk.
