Join the Salford 10k University Team!

Jun 07, 2018

Salford 10k University Team, 2017
The 2017 Salford 10k University Team!

Last year we entered a team of 50 staff and student runners to take part in the UKFast Salford 10k as part of the University's 50th anniversary celebrations, bringing home the 'UKFast Business Trophy' for the fastest team to boot! 

This year we're looking for even more runners and would love you to take part.

The race will be taking place on Sunday 9 September at MediaCityUK, starting at 10.15am. To run as part of the team you will be required to wear a branded University of Salford t-shirt and join us for a team photo before the race starts. Your picture may also be taken during the race and both the team and race photos may be used online at a later date. 

If all of this sounds good, and you can definitely commit to taking part, then please register your interest below and provide the t-shirt size you require. We are hoping to provide FREE places for everyone who wishes to take part - but will only be able to confirm this when we have final numbers.

The event organisers, Sports Tours International, require all runners to register for their race pack individually so that they have emergency contact numbers, personalised race chip details etc. They will provide a discount code so that you can claim your pre-paid place for free. These instructions will follow at a later date when your race place has been confirmed.

Registration closes on Friday 29 June. 

Please register your interest on the Eventbrite booking page here
