Still mainIndividual Mastheadtaining that ‘New Year, New You’ attitude? Why not push yourself that extra 6.2 miles and take on the Great Manchester Run in aid of Independent Options!

The run, to be held on Sunday 28th May, will see participants race to complete the 10 kilometre from Portland Street around Manchester, before crossing the finishing line on Deansgate. There’s also the option to really push yourself and extend the route, completing a half marathon – that’s a whole 13.1 miles!

With your help, we can continue our work supporting children and adults with disabilities across Stockport. By taking on the challenge you can be certain that your contributions will leave behind a positive footprint, from organising exciting events to raising a new roof!

Simply register on the Great Manchester Run’s website, and let us know you’d like to take part! We can then send you a sponsorship pack and will support you throughout the process. Then all that’s left to do is to pull on your running shoes and get training!
