Our Events

Bring your friends to cheer you on, capture the moment on camera, and then we can all celebrate together at the after-party.

  • BEE A Record Breaker: Great Mcr Run – Sunday 24th May 2020
At the Great Mcr Run, we will break the Guinness World Record record for the largest number of people to gather together dressed* as a Bee! (2,176 if you didn’t know). Then we’ll join the 50,000 runners in the 10k sponsored run across Manchester, forming a “Bee Wave” to celebrate our great city.

This is our biggest fundraising event, so we want all our “Bees” to raise sponsorship for us. If 2,200 runners each raise £100, we will generate £220,000 for our good work!

The entry fee to the Great Mcr Run is £39. EXCLUSIVE OFFER! When you secure a place and set up an online sponsorship page favouring We Love MCR Charity – we will refund £25 of your fee into your bank account!

*To take part as a Bee, all you need are wings and antennae (simple to buy cheaply online, or try to DIY), plus a black-and-yellow top – get as creative as you like!

So – get fit in 2020, raise some cash for us, and secure your place in the Guinness Book Of Records! Don’t miss out on what will be one of Manchester’s finest days…
