There’s still time to properly get into the festive mood by taking part in the family-friendly Jingle Bell Jog at MediaCity UK. Entries for the 5k event, scheduled for the first Sunday of next month (3 December) remain at the bargain price of £11 for adults and £6 for children—a snip that is sure to kickstart the seasonal fun.
Set in the shadows of the BBC and ITV studios, MediaCityUK will be the perfect backdrop to the 5k, which invites participants to either walk or run around the course. The venue is regarded as one of the most iconic in the north west and is the site at which the popular UKFast City of Salford 10K, also organised by Sports Tours International, takes place each year.
The short route will see participants move out from the start line on the MediaCityUK Piazza, over the water onto the Trafford side to pass by the Imperial War Museum and Coronation Street Studios, before returning back over the river past the BBC buildings to finish.
Participants are also encouraged to dress up in festive costumes which, from previous years, has included some spectacular Santas, reindeers and elves. Further information is available on the Sports Tours International website.
