Run Heaton 5k, 10k & Half
--- This event has been cancelled due to ongoing concerns regarding Coronavirus. The race organiser will be in touch with you in due course if you have made a booking for this event. ---
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 race is a great opportunity for a chip timed personal best.
There will music, refreshments and a fantastic themed Heaton Park medal. Come and enjoy the day with us; we hope to see you there!
Each mile is accurately marked out with distance flags and we have plenty of helpers to keep you on track and to encourage you on your way to the finish.
