Join the North West Air Ambulance Charity for the Great Manchester Run in 2017 and help to keep our helicopters flying and saving lives.

Take in some of Manchester’s iconic sites in the hugely popular 10k, or challenge yourself in the brand new half marathon. With bands and thousands of spectators lining the routes and creating a terrific atmosphere, this event is a must for all abilities.
