Join team brainstrust at the Simplyhealth Great Manchester Run and help people in the UK who are living with a terrifying brain tumour diagnosis.

The Great Manchester Run is one of the biggest and most popular 10k races in the UK. The course is fast and flat, great for beginners or seasoned runners after a personal best.

We not only have spaces in the popular 10k route, we also have spaces in the half marathon, which is only the second ever staging of this popular distance.

As well as a great personal achievement, you’ll also be helping people living with a brain tumour to feel less alone and afraid.

I rang brainstrust in the middle of the night, about 3am, when I was in a state. I was amazed that someone could care. I think she said, ‘but you needed me now’ and since then that is the only thing I have ever felt from this charity – love support, friendship and care.” – Sarah

brainstrust is a UK based brain tumour support charity. We know that when people hear the words ‘you have a brain tumour’ they need support from people who not only understand the fear, but also how best to overcome it.

We provide personal 24/7 support from the point of diagnosis onwards, and build resources that help people with a brain tumour become stronger. We also work with hospitals to secure the best care possible for people with the condition. And, because we truly understand, we’re able to campaign for the brain tumour community to help solve real issues.

We’ve helped thousands of people on their brain tumour journey. Thanks to your support we can help even more.

Entry is free, We just ask that you raise at least £150 for the 10k or £250 in sponsorship for the half marathon.
