The day will begin with the 5K Serious Santa Run at 11.30am on the Old Trafford forecourt on Sir Matt Busby Way.  Runners will make their way down the newly-named Sir Alex Ferguson Way before taking in the sights of the Imperial War Museum, The Lowry and MediaCity.

The 2K Family Fun Runners will set off at 12.30pm and join-up with the other runners after taking a shorter route that leads down United Road this of course will take all the Santas home to Old Trafford where they will make a player’s entrance into the stadium by running down the tunnel into the ‘Theatre of Dreams’.
