The Michelmores 5k Charity Run

Michelmores has been organising its annual charity run for the past 18 years.

This year’s Charity Run will take place on Thursday 7 September 2017. The Run starts next to the historic cathedral and winds its way around the City Centre, finishing back at the Cathedral Green. Participants can run, jog or walk – all fitness levels are welcome.

Cost of entry is £18 and includes a good quality run t-shirt and a goody bag.

Timings for the day:

  • 5pm – Race Village open
  • 6pm – Welcome and warm up
  • 6.30pm – Race to start (each wave 2 mins apart)
  • 7pm – Prize giving

The waves for this year's Run are:

  • Wave 1: Sub 23 mins
  • Wave 2: 23 – 25:59 mins
  • Wave 3: 26 – 28:59 mins
  • Wave 4: 29 – 31:59 mins
  • Wave 5: 32 + mins

The Run:

  • is the South West’s largest corporate charity run
  • attracts 1,000 runners each year
  • has raised over £300,000 for local charities since its inception – and this year is raising money for local charity, Balloons
  • gives you the chance to be involved with your local community

Our aim is simple: to raise as much money as possible for Balloons, a fantastic local charity that provides support for children, young people and their families before or following the death of someone significant in their lives. It is the only charity of its kind in the local area.

For every £25 you raise for Balloons, you will be entered into a prize draw to win a three-night weekend stay at a luxury holiday cottage in St Ives, Cornwall. So, raise £100 and get entered four times!
