Greater 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 2019.
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 will be available to all University colleagues and 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 will be providing fantastic training plans in the New Year 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 a handful of female-only classes during January.
There’ll be more information on how to get involved in the New Year, but to whet your appetite take a look here https://www.greatrun.org/great-manchester-run
Come and run with us! The training in January 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 in January and compete with us as Team Salford in May. Let’s take those smalls steps together.
