It’s really great that I get to run the Great Manchester Run 10k on 21st May on behalf of TfGM’s corporate charities: The Christie Charity and Emmeline's Pantry. The 6 miles will also help me towards my team’s target of 100 miles of active travel for the Bee Active Fundraiser which is running throughout May (please sign up for that if you can). I’ve never run the GM Run before but it looks like the event will be very well supported with a lively crowd! I’m mostly glad that the course looks flat and isn’t longer. More importantly, I would be very grateful for any donations to support the two charities and the great work they do. Please put #YesJimmy in your donation comments as this will let me track my total raised. Thanks!

The Bee Active Fundraiser is taking place from 1-31 May 2023. We invite you to form teams or challenge yourself to complete at least 100 miles under your own power during the month. We're aiming to see how far TfGM can travel together, and to raise at least £5000 for our corporate charities, Emmeline's Pantry and The Christie Charity.

To sign up:
1: Please donate at least £5 on this page as your entry fee, writing #BeeActiveFundraiser in the message section.

2: Register here: Only TfGM staff members can access this sign-up form so if you’re joining our challenge as part of a team with a staff member, they will need to enter your details for you.

3: Once you've registered and paid your £5 entry fee, we'll send you a spreadsheet so you can keep track of your mileage, and ideas for activities and challenges you might like to take part in during the month to boost your mileage total.

Happy moving!

Paul Groves says: This Spring I am embarking on a number of running challenges, starting on the 2nd April with the Paris Marathon (assuming it’ll go ahead given the current demonstrations and strikes), shortly followed by the Manchester Marathon on 16th April and then on 21st May I will be taking on the Great Manchester 10km Run.

The biggest challenge of all won’t be the running however: Mrs G has arranged for us to visit the Eiffel Tower on Monday morning after the run - problem being the lift tickets are all booked up so we’re walking the 740 steps to the second level.

I’m delighted to be running for TfGM’s corporate charities The Christie Charity and Emmeline’s Pantry; any donations will be very much appreciated. For an extra bit of fun I have a bottle of champagne available to the person who can guess the closest combined time that I’ll run. Just pledge a minimum of £5 for your guess (contact me for details). So I can track my contributions to the TfGM charities please include #RUNPAULRUN in your donation comments. Thank you!

An intrepid team of four, Team Bee TfGM, are taking up a last-minute challenge on behalf of TfGM’s charities to run the Manchester Marathon on 3rd April as a relay team running 6.5 miles each.

Leg 1’s Danny Moss says: “The challenge for me is that I planned to do the full marathon last year, I trained for it and was well prepared to do it but ended up occupied on the day of the marathon to be at the birth of my son haha (was on the same day), so had to give it a miss. Therefore, since then with lack of sleep and nowhere near as much time to train, I’d like to give this a go and would also like to help the team complete the relay.”

Ewan Mair, taking up the baton on leg 2, says: “As I have not trained properly to complete the full marathon, (although entered), this opportunity to still participate in it and soak up the wonderful support from the crowd on the day and raise money for charity was an unexpected bonus.”

Third out of the gate, Brad Mawson, says: ‘’It feels great to be able to raise awareness and money for both charities whilst doing something I love; it will be a great event.’’

And Dan Wilkinson, taking the glory for the team on the finishing line, says: “I wouldn’t be able to accomplish a marathon on my own, so hopefully running the Manchester Marathon as part of a TfGM relay team will be good fun and we’ll raise a decent amount for two great charities.”

We wish them well and hope they have a brilliant day out raising funds for Emmeline’s Pantry and the Christie Charity! Please cheer them on by sponsoring them (minimum £5 donation) and adding gift aid if you're eligible. Many thanks!
