Welcome to the UMRun running group

Next run: Tuesday 26 January 2021

About our group

Update November 2020 - Due to the ongoing pandemic we are unable to run the face to face group sessions as described below. There is currently an opportunity to join the Tuesday lunchtime group via zoom. If you need some encouragement to get out and run and want some advice on warm up and stretching why not join us. 

Join The University of Manchester staff & postgrad running group supervised by a Run England affiliated leader. These structured and planned weekly sessions vary each week and cater for all abilities.

We have two main meet points - The Active Lifestyles Centre on Denmark Road and the Vimto Statue on Granby Row (Outside Sackville Street Building)

There is no charge to attend the groups. They are run by volunteers who are staff at the University and are part form part of our Health and Fitness programme, from the SPORT office.
