The RSPB and Manchester City Council are organising a Fun Run to raise awareness about a new partnership between the two organisations within the Mersey Valley.
There will be a 10k, 5k and family (approx 1.6k) fun run on the day, which will need marshalls around the routes. We will also need volunteers to assist with registration and general information giving on the day.
The 10k run will start at Chorlton Water Park and finish at Fletcher Moss Park, Didsbury. The 5k run will start and end at Fletcher Moss Park.
The Family fun run will start and end at Chorlton Water Park. Therefore marshalls and assistants will be required at both start and finish locations as well as between the two sites on the run route.
The 10k route is completley off-road, mainly following the route of the Mersey River.
