Compete with us as Team Salford in the Great Manchester Run!

Do you want a strong solid relationship that is willing to go the distance? Get to know your running shoes! We are incredibly excited to announce that we will be entering a team, for the first time, in the Great Manchester Run on Sunday 19 May.

If you thoroughly enjoyed the Santa Dash and you’re looking for another healthy challenge to step it up a notch, the Great Manchester Run could be perfect for you. It would be great to show our Manchester neighbours some of our Salford spirit!

Discounted entry is now readily available to all University students. You’ll also get your very own A-grade quality branded running shirt. If you want to start your year with a ‘sprint’ in your step and work off all the festive treats, this is for you! There’s no need to fear, The Sports Centre is here - they have prepared some fantastic training plans which they will be providing for those that want to prep for the event, whether you’re a beginner or a track star! The Sports Centre will also be hosting female-only classes every Monday with Kim from 4:30 - 5pm and also a mixed session with Daley and Stu at 1 - 1:30pm on Wednesdays! The sessions are free for anyone with a ticket for the run. Click here and get yours whilst you still can!

Come and run with us! The training has offically started! Training for the run will allow you to take that much needed headspace you may be craving after the busy festive season draws to a close. The race is for anyone and everyone who wants to give it a try and is open to all abilities. Whether you want to walk, jog, run or do a mixture of all three, join us today and compete with us as Team Salford in May. Let’s take those smalls steps together.
