Run Heaton 5k, 10k & Half Marathon - July
We are excited to announce that the Run Heaton 5k, 10k & Half Marathon series returns on July 28th 2019. This large park, just north of Manchester and home to a Grade 1 listed neoclassical 18th century house, is the perfect setting for a fun and frantic day out. Running on the paths within Heaton Park, this RunBritain licensed race is a great opportunity for a chip timed personal best.

Very well organised
Loved the proper tracks & footpaths which gave sure footed conditions despite the torrential rain beforehand.
Motivational signs on the course, lots of spectator interaction & great professional photos.
Great medal & tasty snacks at the end too!
