If you love running then we have your next year calendar sorted! Enter the Running Club Clash at the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon and give your club the opportunity to run with us.

We will again be awarding the Team Prize which consists of:

Runners must have stated their club affiliation on the entry form before the race (retrospective nominations will not be accepted) and the runners' membership status will be checked with the club secretary before prizes are sent out.

Prizes will be awarded as follows for both male and female teams:

1st team - £600 per team

3rd team - £150 per team


Additionally, for this year’s event we are introducing the following club prizes:
