Wythenshawe Community Run is a not for profit community group operated by volunteers and funded by grants and donations.

We offer a free 2k or 5k run every Sunday with both runs starting and finishing at Wythenshawe Park Athletics Track at 9am prompt. The course is all on paths (so no mud) and is completely flat so it's perfect for both seasoned runners looking to improve times and for complete newcomers to running and you can Walk, Jog or Run our courses at a pace that suits you.

All our runs are fully marshaled we have qualified first aiders with fully stocked first aid kits at the start/finish and on the course at 2k, we also have an onsite defibrillator.

Both our runs are free to take part in however we do ask runners to register for health and safety reasons and to access our electronic timing system for post run results. You can register by clicking on this ​Register to run​​​ button or in person on the day by heading for the registration point at the track.

Wythenshawe Community Run is a run, not a race and we welcome all ages and all abilities, we actively encourage families to take part together at their own pace. We also encourage responsible runners with dogs and runners with single buggies because ultimately our run is about getting people running together in the fresh air and achieving their own personal goals.

We are a very friendly run so if you are worried about coming down and taking part please don't be as a warm welcome is always guaranteed not only for the organizers but from all of our incredible regular runners!

Absolutely!! We are a community run operated for the benefit of local families and the local community! Our 2K and 5K runs, the car park, all the facilities and refreshments at the end of the run are all completely free. (We even occasionally have free chocolate at the finish but that's a suprise!)
You can run without registration but we encourage you to register to get an official time and a finishing position at the end of your run!

If you are unsure or haven't exercised for a long time please seek medical advice before taking part.
As a community run we haven't set an age limit on participation but would ask Parents and guardians to use there discretion when deciding if younger children would enjoy taking part?

As a guide children over 4 years of age are usually fine but we ask parents to run along side any children under the age of 11 or that they feel may become distressed by running alone.
We ask that all runners under the age of 11 are accompanied by an adult, during the whole of the run they must be within arms length of a parent , guardian or carer. We also ask that in this situation if either runner has to withdraw from the race for whatever reason then both runners must withdraw.
*Please do not ask to leave anyone under the age of 16 with a course marshal or race organizer whilst you run as we cannot legally accept responsibility for any child.
Yes we do but you need to register here Wythenshawe Community Run Registration form to be guaranteed a time and place! its free and very simple and you will be issued with a unique run number the first time you attend the run. We use web scorer and you can see examples of previous runs here ​Webscorer​​​

Sunday the 20th August is the Wythenshawe Games 10k run in Wythenshaw Park at 10am so we are cancelling our run partly because the 10k uses some of our course and also because we want to encourage as many of our runners as possible to support this local run by signing up on the link below.

On Saturday the 14th May we received the very sad news that Mike Dunne has passed away after a short battle with Cancer. Mike has been a integral part of the Wythenshawe community Run team from the very start and a huge part of why we were able to continue after Great Run Local folded. Mike got us access to the park, the track, Porta-cabins, Toilets and Changing room, he set the course up every week and he was always the first person at the track on a Sunday morning and the last person to leave. He himself was a very accomplished runner and he loved watching people find a love for running that he had for his whole life. Mike was a good friend to all of the Community run team and a genuinely lovely person who was so full of joy that will be very sadly missed. In association with Sale Harriers we will be hosting a remembrance run for Mike on 4th June with a book of condolences for regular runners to write comments for the family.

We need Marshals from 8.45 am until around 10.00 am. Roles include...............

Start and Finish marshals to help the Race Director brief runners on the course and record finish times and names.

Course marshals who help set the course up pre - run and direct runners safely around the course.

Car park marshals to help runners arrive and park safely.

Tail runner to safely follow the back of the run and advise marshals to stand down.

Refreshments volunteer to greet the runners with a free refreshing drink at the end of the run.

You don't need any specific skills as we will provide full training and individual mentoring and we will always try and match volunteers to a suitable position and we we always guarantee good fun!

We can also help our younger volunteers to complete the volunteer section of their Duke of Edinburgh awards in a fun, relaxed and rewarding environment.
