FAQs

  • Do you have any age restrictions / can children take part?

    Absolutely! We typically allow children of all ages to take part in all our events (unless specific information is given for a set event). Please note that children remain the responsibility of their parents/guardian throughout our events. If the parent/guardian is satisfied the child/children can confidently run 5k or 10k unaccompanied they may do so, with a parent/guardian remaining onsite at all times.

  • Can I run with a buggy?

    Yes this is typically ok for most locations however please check the run route course as some locations can be a mix of path, trail, grass so not always suitable for running with a buggy. Also please try and stay to the left as much as possible to give room for other runners. (this is allowed at running events but not triathlon, please see last faq for more info)

  • Can I walk / do you have a cut off time to complete the event in?

    We typically have a cut off time of 1.5 hours to complete the 5k/10k races from when the event starts. 3 hours for half marathons. Walking part of a 5k event is typically fine but the 10k races are mostly for running (with a bit of walking/jogging if necessary!). If doing a virtual run you have the luxury of completing your event anytime, anywhere and for however long throughout the given event period!

  • Can I run with my dog/are you canicross friendly

    Yes, we love too see dogs running with their owners! Please ensure your dog is on a short lead/harness and that you are careful on the course and respect other runners and park users.

  • Can I wear headphones?

    Yes we do allow this but please note it is your responsibility to make sure you can hear what's going on around you when running, including marshals and general public. Please keep the volume at a level whereby you can hear any important announcements that may be made. (this is allowed at running events but not triathlon, please see last faq for more info)

Shelter

The housing crisis isn't about houses - it's about people. The lack of safe, secure and affordable homes is affecting people across the whole country. More than three million families could be one paycheck away from losing their home

Some stats:

Every day, 110 families in England become homeless

Every 13 minutes, another family in England becomes homeless

Please note fundraising is completely optional and there's no requirement to do so however if you decide to support Shelter, there is no minimum fundraising target, just raise what you can.

Our Manchester 5k and 10k Winter Warmer Run starts at 10am and the half marathon will start at 9am.

Toilets will be within the event hub and ensure you go with plenty of time to spare to avoid long queues.

Coffee and snacks will be available for sale within the event hub.

the event

The 5k and 10k Winter Warmer Run starts at 10am and the half marathon will start at 9am.

Please note that the start of the run will be staggered to avoid too much congestion on the towpaths. However this will not affect your time as our Results Base timing team will record your time from when you cross the starting mat.

There will be marshals around the course to support and encourage you.

Please take care when running around the course as this is public land and local residents will be out and about. Please always stay on the left unless otherwise guided.

If wearing headphones please make sure you can hear other people around you and marshal instructions.

after the event

Everyone will receive a medal and there are also a few trophies that are up for grabs.

A fun, small scale event. Volunteers and staff were great on the day in terms of helping and cheering. Route was enjoyable and had a few hills to make it a good challenge for beginners! Snacks and drinks provided as well as finishers medal and timing printouts! Would recommend.

Brilliant event. Completed the 10k Winter Warmer Run on sunday 2nd February in Manchester. Brilliant event and very well organised from registration to bag drop and the course itself. Loved the addition of being able to check my finish time instantly from a screen! Will definitely return next year and recommend to friends.

Brilliant run well organised. This is an amazing race with some fantastic scenery. The event was well organised from the off with the race organisers doing an amazing job in revving up the atmosphere. The run itself is lovely mix of undulating hills and flats with just enough to test even the most ardent of runners. Dare I say that you will get a PB on this course???? Well there certainly is no reason not too that's for sure!!!! The marshals were fantastic throughout and all in all a great experience. We'll worth the effort despite the weather
