City of Manchester 5K Series Race 1

The City of Manchester 5k Series is a new 5k race series held near Manchester centre at Alexandra Park throughout June. It’s basically a course designed for one thing and that’s allowing all runners, of all abilities to achieve a PB!! It’s a 3-lap course and (according to Garmin) has only 3 feet rise per lap, it has great wide path surfaces (no trail sections) and long straights with only 4 real turns.

we expect these races to be very popular so please pre-enter to avoid disappointment. The races can be entered individually or you can enter all 4 races in the series (via the Series entry option). If you miss the series entry, then simply enter 3 from 4 of the races to qualify for the league. There are various prize options for both places and improvers in the league and superb individual and team prizes each race.

The event is completely traffic free, measured course and UKA insured!
