Exlore Heaton Park, the biggest park in Manchester and the largest municipal park in Europe. See if you can spot Heaton Hall, an 18th-century country house, the boating lake, an animal farm, woodlands, ornamental gardens, the Papal monument and tram system as you race around the 5k route!
Make sure that you arrive 15 minutes before the start to take part in the Big Fun Warm up, dress code is fun so wear whatever you like – fancy dress is always welcome (actually, highly recommended)!
Thanks to research, over 400 people now survive cancer every day. This progress has only been possible thanks to the support of people like you. There’s good reason for optimism, but we can’t stop until everyone can live free from the fear of cancer.
Join team Cancer Research UK and help beat Cancer sooner.
