We understand that people with cancer are worried about coronavirus. Here is the latest guidance. We will update it regularly.
Join Team Macmillan on the UK's flattest and friendliest marathon course - achieve a personal best and raise money for people living with cancer
The organisers of the Greater Manchester Marathon have confirmed the event will be postponed to 11th October 2020. We hope our runners will be able to join us on this new date, and will be in contact with all our charity place participants over the coming week with guidance on next steps.
There are two ways to join Team Macmillan for the Greater Manchester Marathon 2020:
Macmillan Charity Place Entry
Our charity places are a great way to make a difference to people affected by cancer with every step. We ask that you pledge to raise a minimum of £400 in sponsorship (excluding Gift Aid) and there’s a £30 registration fee.
To enter, simply click the 'Get a place’ button and complete our online entry form.
The registration fee is payable to Macmillan Cancer Support Trading Limited which is wholly owned subsidiary of Macmillan Cancer Support. Macmillan Cancer Support Trading Limited donates 100% of its profits to Macmillan Cancer Support each year.
Own place entry
Public entry for the 2020 Greater Manchester Marathon is open at the official race website.
Once your place is secured click the ‘I have my own place’ button to join the team and order your running kit. There's no minimum sponsorship, just raise as much as you can!
Whichever way you choose to join Team Macmillan, we'll support you every step of the way with:
And of course..... the loudest and most supportive cheerers on the course!
Most importantly we will provide you with a reason to put in those months of training and fundraising, because you know that your efforts will help everyone with cancer live life as fully as they can.
