Challenge Yourself in 2013

We are calling all runners, swimmers and cyclists to take on a sporting challenge for charity this New Year.

Challenge Yourself in 2013

Greater Manchester Marathon: 28th April 2013
The Greater Manchester Marathon returned last year after a 10-year absence and proved to be a massive success.  This year, there will be a new route, making the 26-mile course the flattest in the UK and what’s more, the race village will be located at our very own Old Trafford stadium, where the finish line will also be situated!
Entry fee: £47.50-£49.50

Great Manchester Run: 26th May 2013
At 10km, this course is significantly shorter than the marathon but runners will still experience fantastic city centre sights and landmarks such as the Lowry and the Imperial War Museum.
Entry fee: £39

Manchester to Blackpool Bike Ride: 14th July 2013
Starting from our home ground, Old Trafford, this invigorating 60-mile ride will take you along country lanes to the finish line on the South Promenade at Blackpool, where you can enjoy a barbecue, live music and well-earned massage (not to mention an equally well-earned drink in the beer tent!).
Entry fee: £17.75
