The Race Course for the Big Fun Run Manchester


  • Big Fun Warm Up
  • Great finisher’s medal
  • Quality goodybag
  • Fantastic running experience



The run starts and finishes on the grass area to the north west of Heaton Hall. After starting on a short stretch of grass, the course is run on tarmac until it returns to this section at the finish. As the runners approch the tarmac, the route turns right and heads south past Heaton Hall and on towards the lake. The route continues round the lake and then heads north east past the golf course and then swings back past the front of Heaton Hall where it turns north and back to the finish area.

Car parking is available in a designated area on a first-come first-served basis. Cars should enter off the A665 and St. Margaret’s Road. There may be a parking charge for parking in the park. Pedestrian access is available via all entrances. Runners are encouraged to consider public transport or car sharing.

Heaton Park is the biggest park in Manchester and the largest municipal park in Europe. It has a Grade I listed, 18th-century country house called Heaton Hall, 18-hole golf course with driving range, a boating lake, an animal farm, woodlands, ornamental gardens, an observatory, two playgrounds, a Papal monument and a volunteer-run tram system, restaurant and lakeside tea room combine to make Heaton one of the most popular family days out in the North West.
