How to enter

There are two ways to join Team Macmillan for the Greater Manchester Marathon 2021:

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!

What do I get as part of #TeamMacmillan?

Whichever way you choose to join Team Macmillan, we'll support you every step of the way with:

  • Our bumper fundraising pack, containing loads of tips and ideas.
  • Access to our online training zone
  • Your free Team Macmillan technical running vest or t-shirt, plus iron on letters to customise your kit.
  • Regular e-newsletters to keep you up to date with Macmillan's news and activities.

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.
