Wythenshawe Community Run 10k

£15.70

This is a chip timed multi terrain 10k race in honour of our extraordinary brave and special friend Mike Dunne

Mike loved running and organising runs because of the friendship he found with his fellow runners, his encouragement and help towards new runners is legendary.

Mike was sadly diagnosed with cancer in late 2022 and passed away in May 2023. On the 4th June 2023 we had our free 5K as a memorial run for Mike.

This year we want to do our first ever 10K race and we want to do it in memory of Mike but also to try and raise funds for ‘Greater Manchester Asbestos Victims Support Group’ and ‘St Ann’s Hospice’ two charities that supported Mike and his family during his illness and to keep Wythenshawe Community Run free as Mike always intended.

 

The course

The run has a running track start and finish and is mostly on the paths and tracks of Wythenshawe Park. The paths are wide and good underfoot, It has small loops on parts of the course but It is a flat, fast course.

 

The venue

This beautiful park is set in 109 hectares of open parkland in South Manchester, with historic and ornamental woodlands, herbaceous borders, formal bedding, open grassland and beautiful wildflower meadows.

The park is steeped in history and there are three Grade II Listed Buildings located within its boundaries: North Lodge, the Statue of Oliver Cromwell and Wythenshawe Hall.

The park is easy to access by car or public transport and there’s parking available on site.The running track has on-site toilets and changing rooms.

 

Eco Water

In a conscious effort to reduce our carbon footprint and do our bit to save the planet, we are having a bring your own water bottle (pre-filled) to place at the finish area for the end of the race. Completely optional, but every person who brings their own bottle of water is helping to save the planet one small step at a time

 

Each finisher will recieve a medal!
