Help us to take on the challenge of beating children's cancer by taking on a challenge of your own. By getting your friends and family to sponsor you, you can raise the vital funds needed to find new treatments. You could also join a fundraisers or a supporter event.
This super fast and flat course takes you from Chester Road in Old Trafford, taking a route around the local area of Trafford and ending at Emirates Old Trafford, the home of Lancashire Cricket Club!
Marathons are never easy, however, we will be there to support you every step of the way. By pushing your fitness to the next level, you can have the motivation of knowing that you are helping us fund vital, safer treatments for children that are diagnosed with cancer in the UK every day.

How to get your place
We have a limited number of charity places available for this year’s Greater Manchester Marathon. If you wish to run for Kidscan, tickets cost £30 and can be purchased via the link below. We ask that you are able to raise a minimum of £300 in sponsorship. The minimum sponsorship allows us to cover the cost of the charity places, whilst investing in childhood cancer research.
If you have already got a place, let us know about your challenge, and we will send you our fundraising pack. This contains full of ideas to boost your sponsorship, tools to help you spread the word and instructions on how to set up an online fundraising page. Plus! – Join our Kidscan fundraisers Facebook group to share tips and tricks with the rest of #TeamKidscan
Register with Kidscan
By joining #TeamKidscan, not only will you be helping to ensure that in future every child with cancer can survive and thrive, but you will have our full support every step of the way. From the moment you sign up, we’ll support you as much (or as little) as you need. Benefits include:
Fundraising can be easier than you think! You can set up an online donation page or use one of our paper sponsor forms to get your fundraising off to a great start.
If you want to boost your fundraising you could run a sweepstake, asking people to make a donation in order to guess how long your run will take you. You can also run your own ‘mini fundraisers’ to raise extra money. These are usually small events like bake sales that are easy to organise and plan.
We love making as much noise as possible on race day! We’ll send out details of where our cheer point will be in advance of the race. We’d love to see your family and friends there on the day! Let us know in advance, and we’ll make sure we have t-shirts ready!
Before signing up to run for Kidscan we ask that you read and agree with the Term’s & Conditions.
