Register to join the Team MFT Blue Wave

The Team MFT ‘NHS blue wave’ is returning this year at the Great Manchester Run 2021.

The event brings teams together from across MFT to have fun and improve our health and wellbeing as part of the biggest 10k in the UK. We want to bring back all of this energy and excitement into the event this year. Supporting your health and wellbeing is a key element of our workforce recovery programme.

The iconic event will be delivered safely by Great Run Company, in line with government guidance and operating with a reduced number of participants based on the government’s roadmap to relax social distancing and allow large events to take place. This year to ensure safety there will be 28,000 participants instead of the usual 40,000.

For 2021 we want as many of you as possible to get involved, hitting the streets of Manchester to emphasise the unity of #TeamMFT. This event truly is for everyone, whether you’d rather run, walk, jog or use a wheelchair. It’s all about taking part, building up some team spirit, and celebrating the NHS.

Thanks to the MFT staff lottery, we have again secured a reduced registration fee of £23, and you’ll also receive a Team MFT technical t-shirt along with loads of support and encouragement from our team.

Anyone who joins Team MFT is also very welcome to fundraise for one of our MFT Charities, however this isn’t a condition of entry and you’re very welcome to just take part in the event. Should you wish to fundraise, the Charity Team is here to support you. You can raise funds for any ward, service, department or project of your choice across the Trust.

So what are you waiting for? Prepare to feel good and be part of it! Sign up here today!

If you signed up to the 2020 run and have not received your token from Great Run, please contact charity.events@mft.nhs.uk

As the reduced registration rate is subsidised by the staff lottery we unfortunately cannot offer this discount to staff family and friends, however they are very welcome to register for the Great Manchester Run separately here and fundraise for an MFT Charity of their choice.

For younger family members, there is also the Junior (2.5k) and Mini (1.5k) Great Manchester Run, with charity places available. Contact charity.events@mft.nhs.uk for more information.
