Run Heaton 5k, 10k & Half Marathon – Sunday 24th March 2019

We are excited to announce that the Run Heaton 5k, 10k & Half Marathon series returns on March 24th 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.

The race starts, runs around the roads inside and finishes within the parks grounds. Each kilometre 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.

Your entry will include:

Chip timed results

Unique themed medal

Free official event photos

Flapjacks & fruit

Brand new medal to be revealed soon!
