Blue Run is back in 2023!

The Blue Run is back at the Etihad for 2023 and we can’t wait to see you all again, in support of Manchester City’s charity, City in the Community!

Taking place on Saturday 25th March, we have two distance options for our fans to choose from. Your mini blues can enjoy taking on our 2.5km route whilst our 5km option offers more of a challenge.

It’s your choice to run, walk or dance your way around the route.

Our Blue Run route will take you from the Etihad Stadium to the City Football Academy, whilst being covered in blue powder along the way!

There will also be a pre-race warm up and entertainment to get you ready to be covered in blue glory!

Some runners might want to push themselves even further, running a set distance in the build up to the Blue Run and finishing their challenge on event day – it’s your run, your way.

Can’t get to the Etihad? Prefer to run at home? No problem! Sign up to our Blue Run at Home and have your own Blue Run and choose a distance of five, 10, or even 15km we will send you a pack in the post – including internationally!

Entry fees

Adults - £15.00

Junior (under 16) - £12.00

Mini Blue (under 5) - Free

Blue Run at Home - £10.00

All registration fees will include an event t-shirt*, medal, and training support.

We will also have a range of competition prizes available including our ‘Bluest Fan’ and ‘Top Fundraiser’.


As an extra bonus this year, everyone who signs up for the 2023 Blue Run before 11:59pm on Sunday 22nd January will be entered into a prize draw where one lucky entrant will win a Manchester City replica home shirt signed by Phil Foden.

Fancy some friendly competition? Join our Blue Run Strava team and share your training routes and times with fans in the UK and across the world.

The Blue Run 2023 will support City in the Community's work, empowering healthier lives through football. All funds raised will go towards sustaining the charity's programmes, which create healthy people, healthy futures and healthy communities across Greater Manchester.
