We’re excited to announce that some of the team are doing the Heaton Parkrun on June 22. Inspired by our Rob’s momentous effort to run 2400km in 2024, our founder Jack Broadley, and trustees Ian Arnison-Phillips and Harry Johns, will be joining him early doors ready for the 9am run, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

We will need to be too, as we will be about to embark on a nice and easy (as Rob would say) 5km jaunt through Heaton Park. What better way to start your Saturday morning though!

We will be representing BTUK and hopefully raising some awareness around testicular cancer whilst we’re at it. So come and say hello! We would love to chat – just let us catch our breath first! You can find us somewhere around the Pavillion Cafe afterwards where we will be handing out leaflets and chatting to people. We hope to see you there!

What is Heaton parkrun?

This is a 5km run that occurs every Saturday at 9am in Heaton Park, Manchester. It is a free and friendly community event where people can run, jog, or walk the course. Participants must register before they come along, but other than that you are free to along as you please.

The Course

The course is 5km long and is mostly on tarmac paths and gravel. Of course, this is Manchester we are talking about, so expect some wet or muddy patches!

Heaton Park is the largest park in the North West, covering over 600 acres. It is the location of Heaton Hall, a Grade I listed 18th century country house.
