Can we count on you to run for Team Age UK?

Here's how you can get involved:

  1. You first need to register your place through the Greater Manchester Marathon wesite.
  2. Once you have your place, create your Age UK fundraising page on JustGiving. Once you're set up we'll send you an Age UK t-shirt and introduce you to our team who will support you with your fundraising.
  3. Download the Age UK's sponsorship forms (PDF 1 MB) to manage your offline fundraising.
