Join Team Royal Voluntary Service in 2021 as we take on the Great Manchester 10km.

The start line is on Portland Street near the junction with Oxford Street and will take in the views of Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium, the award-winning Imperial War Museum and The Lowry. You will also pass the famous cobbles of Coronation Street’s new set and the remarkable landmark the Beetham Tower, the 47-storey skyscraper which almost marks the finish line.

We have a small number of guaranteed places for both events. In return for a fundraising target of £150 for the 10km. We'll send you everything you need to ensure a great race experience. You'll get a fundraising guide, professional training guides, lots of fundraising support and your very own running top to wear on the day.
