Vice-Chancellor Professor Helen Marshall invites you to join her in the 2018 Vice-Chancellor’s Fun Run to raise money for children’s cancer research charity Kidscan. Participants can join the Vice-Chancellor by running, walking or jogging their way along the new 5K route, taking advantage of the newly redeveloped Peel Park.

You can sign up here and entry is £8 for colleagues, students and members of the community. The closing date for online entries is Thursday 24 May.

Daley O’Neal from the Sports’ Centre and member of DSAS Events said, “We hope to build on the tremendously successful events in 2016 and 2017, by generating better engagement from participants and spectators. Furthermore the VC’s Fun Run provides a platform for improving staff and student wellbeing, making this truly a ‘fun’ run.”

Registration will take place from noon, with the race starting at 1pm from outside University House.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Helen Marshall added, “I am really pleased to once again present the 5K Fun Run supporting Kidscan. Through sport and wellbeing activities we are able to come together for a great cause and create a great sense of community on campus. I look forward to taking part in the new route this year taking advantage of the Peel Park developments. I am also hoping that now the date is a little later in the year the weather will finally be on our side. I look forward to seeing you at the start line!”

We encourage you to support our runners by heading to the Broadwalk for 1pm and where you will be entertained by Shock Radio.
