We Love MCR is offering a special package to MMU volunteers.

Development manager Ged Carter said: “If you’ve ever been to the Great Manchester Run before, you’ll know that access for runners to toilets, secure bag storage and refreshments can involve long queues.

“Our VIP package provides the perfect solution, and saves you up to £49.”
Part of the package includes access to the town hall extension, which is separate from the usual bag drop-off and toilet areas.
