1 Mile Fun Run, 5k Run, and a 5k Walk

How it works: go for your run or walk May 4th - 11th and use your favorite tracker (Map My Run, FitBit, Run Keeper, etc…). When you are finished you will enter your information in our tracking sheet, and upload your tracking app screenshot.

Tag us on social media with your sweaty selfie to let us know you are participating by using the hashtag #ManMO5k. Once you register you will be given a unique “bib number” as well as a link to our tracking form. Please make sure you register everyone who is participating. Should you have any issues with the tracking form please email  

Prizes will be awarded in each category.

The Rules:

  • You do not have to be a Manchester resident to participate
  • You can run/walk indoors or outside. Treadmills count! 
  • You must complete the race sometime between May 4th - 11th 
  • You will receive an extra entry and increase your chance of winning if your run takes place inside the city limits of Manchester. Yes, your run/walk counts as in the city if you are a resident and you do it on your treadmill!
