Manchester Christmas Pudding 5 Mile Dash route

Course Details
This two lap off-road course uses the footpaths, fields and trails in the park, and is suitable for both experienced runners and beginners alike. Please be aware that if the weather conditions are poor, you may find parts of the course wet and/or muddy! Those doing the 2.5 Mile Fun Fun will complete one lap of the course.
Raceday Logistics

Let's Do This always recommend that you arrive at least 45 mins before your start time so that you have enough time to both register and prep for the race start.

Facilities:

On Site Parking
Toilets
Baggage Drop Off

First Aid:

St John Ambulance will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep marshal following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for.

Results:

Your individual time and position will be recorded by your electronic chip. We will endeavour to display results as they come into the race centre. Results will be uploaded to www.nice-work.org.uk as soon as possible after the race. All entrants that have supplied a valid and legible email address will receive a copy of the results as soon as possible after the race.

Volunteers

If you would like to volunteer to help at any of our events, there are a variety of roles available from marshalling to helping with event set-up. We offer our volunteers a free entry to a future race and, in some cases, expenses are available. If interested, please contact: [email protected]

FAQs

How do I attach my timing chip?

Your timing chip is incorporated into your race number and should not be removed. Please place the race number on the front of your vest/shirt and not on your leg or back.

How do I attach my race number?

Please attach your race number to the front of your running top or vest using safety pins or clips, securing it on all four corners. Please don’t attach your number to the back of your shirt as it is difficult for our timekeepers and marshals to identify you.

  • Did the 5 Mile in 2018

    A few more marshals to make sure the route is followed correctly. Also the numbers were down this year, I think you picked one of the main shopping days before Christmas.
  • Did the 5 Mile in 2018

    A great run, felt great to do it in fancy dress - really added to the atmosphere. The treats at the end were a bonus and the large medal was great.
  • Did the 5 Mile in 2018

    The course was muddy in parts as it had been raining heavily the night before.
  • Did the 5 Mile in 2018

    I went in trail shoes and they definitely made a difference.
  • Did the 5 Mile in 2018

    I would recommend running in trail trainers as I ran in my road runners and was slipping and sliding everywhere.
