Companies of all sizes in Manchester’s booming business sector are warming up to compete in the Great Manchester Run Business Challenge on Sunday 22 May.
The Business Challenge has become an annual fixture in the calendar of Manchester businesses, taking place as part of the Great Manchester Run, which will see up to 40,000 runners challenging themselves over 10km through city centre streets closed to traffic and lined with cheering crowds.
Last year more than 200 companies and organisations entered more than 3300 runners to compete for the prize of Manchester’s Greatest Businesses and raise hundreds of thousands for local and national charities.
With new businesses being created daily in the city, this year even more companies are expected to enter male, female or mixed teams of 4-8 runners to compete for the trophy awarded to the fastest small, medium and large businesses.
There are different prize categories and all businesses that enter 12 or more people into the event will receive a free engraved plaque to present to their fastest runner.
Last year’s winners of the Business Challenge trophy were John Caunt Scientific Ltd (small), Join the Dots (Research) Ltd (medium) and Pets at Home (large).
