COMPETITION: Win places for the Cancer Research UK Manchester Winter Run 10k

If you’re after an excuse to get out and get fit this festive season, Mancunian Matters and the Cancer Research UK Winter Run Series have just the ticket…

MM have teamed up with the Winter Run Series to offer two lucky runners the opportunity to pace the streets of Manchester on Sunday February 28 as the third and final leg of a nationwide series of 10k fundraisers – the city’s first such event.

RUNNING NEEDS YOU! Life-saving work to beat cancer is helped immeasurably by fundraising events like the Winter Run Series

Nearly 20% of participants in 2015 were taking part in their first ever running event, with many raising funds for Cancer Research UK. Indeed, many runners of all abilities will be raising much-needed funds to help beat cancer sooner in 2016, life-saving work which is only possible if enough people support fundraising events like Winter Run.

To enter the competition all you need to do is follow @mm_newsonline on Twitter and Winter Run (@WinterRunUK) and email your Twitter handle to newsdesk ( at )

The competition closes on Tuesday December 15 at 3:00pm and is open to anyone, the winner receiving two free entries into the race around Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium.
