Manchester Marathon 2021

Show the world that humanity can win in the Manchester Marathon.

Join our team of human rights heroes in the Manchester Marathon. The UK's second biggest marathon takes you past all of the landmarks of Manchester, with amazing support throughout the route!

As part of #TeamHumanity you will receive the very best support, including:

  • A branded Refugee Action running vest
  • Access to fundraising resources, including our fundraising guide, branded bunting, stickers and collection tins
  • Expert fundraising advice and support from our friendly team

Runners are asked to raise a minimum £350 sponsorship, and there is a £30 fee to register.

With every mile that you run, you will be changing the lives of people seeking safety here in the UK. At Refugee Action, we’re determined to ensure that Britain is a country that truly welcomes refugees. By taking on this challenge, you will be getting us one step closer to that reality.
