The Moon Rise Run

  • Date: April
  • Distance: 5 km

The event

As night falls, the 5k course will be transformed into an enchantingly lit passage across the park. Then cross the finish line, enter the festival and sample music from Manchester’s best up-and-coming bands and treats served by artisan food vendors – think glowing, lantern-lit trees, live music and DJs, street food and bar.

The running course is a gentle exploration of the park and Moon Rise Run is an inclusive event – suitable for everyone from novice runners and serious athletes to music lovers, festival fans, families, big social groups, and anyone looking for a new and memorable experience. The idea is to combine fitness and well being with fun and socialising, all as part of a shared experience in a beautiful, specially created environment.
