A fun and hilarious 5km or 10km obstacle event where you will take on giant inflatables, slides, foam, swings and real gladiators!

How do I get a place?

There are two ways to get yourself signed up for the Gauntlet Games:

Macmillan Charity Place

No public entry stress! We ask you to raise a minimum sponsorship of £150 for your guaranteed place, and there’s no registration fee. To apply, simply click the ‘Get a Guaranteed Place’ button and complete our online application form.

Your Own Place

Public entry for Gauntlet Games Manchester is now open at the official race website. If you are successful in securing a place then we would love to have you running for Team Macmillan. Click the ‘Join Team Macmillan’ button to join the team. There’s no minimum sponsorship, just raise as much as you can!

Why be part of Team Macmillan?

Whichever way you choose to join, as part of Team Macmillan, we’ll make sure you have:

  • Our digital welcome pack, access to our online training zone and loads of fundraising tips and tricks.
  • Your free Team Macmillan technical running vest or t-shirt, plus iron on letters to customise your kit.

Most importantly we will provide you with a reason to put in those months of training and fundraising, because you know that your efforts are going towards improving the lives of people living with cancer in the UK today.

Please note, by signing up to Team Macmillan you are agreeing to our terms and conditions . All participants must be 17 or over on the day of the event.

it could pay for a Macmillan nurse for a week.
