When it comes to support, there's no competition. Macmillan knows what it takes to complete a 10k race. Find out everything you need to know about entering, training and completing the Bupa Great Manchester Run.
Public entry for the 2014 Bupa Great Manchester Run is now open. Places are awarded on a first come first served basis and we anticipate public entry filling quickly.
To secure your own place visit www.greatrun.org| and then join Team Macmillan.
To apply for one of our Guaranteed places you simply to complete our Team Macmillan Application Form.
We ask that all our Macmillan guaranteed place runners pledge to raise a minimum of £250 each. This will be due in one month after the event. Of course we will give you all the encouragement and support you will need to make sure you smash that target.
If you have your own place then we ask you to raise as much as possible and we’ll provide you with the same level of care and support that our charity guaranteed place runners receive.
Your ‘own place’ means that you have registered for the Bupa Great Manchester Run directly with the organisers through their website.
You would have also paid a registration fee of £38 for that place. Once you have registered for your place you would have received a confirmation email from the organisers
A guaranteed place means that you have completed a Team Macmillan guaranteed place application form and you were notified by Macmillan by phone that your application was successful. Then you would have received a fundraising pack with a covering letter stating ‘Congratulations and welcome to Team Macmillan we are delighted to confirm your guaranteed place with us.’
In regards to sponsorship, we ask you to pledge to raise a minimum of £250 in sponsorship for Macmillan (18 June 2014).
When you join Team Macmillan you will be supported throughout your entire Bupa Great Manchester Run experience.
In addition to our initial fundraising and training pack we will send you regular newsletters full of tips to help your prepare for the big day.
You will also be invited to our post-race recovery tent after the race, where you will receive some well-deserved refreshments.
And if that isn’t enough, we will give you the loudest support possible throughout the race from our Team Macmillan supporter points.
Of course. When you sign up to run the Bupa Great Manchester Run with Team Macmillan we will provide you with a comprehensive training pack and regular newsletters full of top tips, including advice from our Team Macmillan patrons.
We will also advise you of other useful sources of information to help you prepare for the big day.
If you get injured whilst training we recommend you contact your GP, physio or specialist sports injury clinic. They will be able to advise you if you are fit enough to run.
If you do need to withdraw you will need to let Great Run race organisers know as soon as possible as you will be able to defer your place to 2014. Please also let Macmillan know.
Approximately three weeks before race day the organisers will send you your race pack containing your race number and your running chip. These are vital as you will not be able to start the race without them.
