Students at the University of Manchester ran non-stop for 24 hours in aid of those sleeping rough on the streets of Manchester.
The Manchester 24 Hour Run Against Homelessness, hosted by the Run Wild Manchester society, saw students run through the city on a mapped out course for 24 hours straight. The run started on the 13th of November and finished at midday on the 14th.
Run Wild Manchester managed to more than double their £1000 target for the charity, with the current total standing at £2234 and still rising. There were 309 runners who took part across the two days with 215km completed in total, making this the biggest event that Run Wild Manchester has put on to date.
The event raised money for the Mayor’s Charity, which will support the A Bed Every Night Scheme. The charity works to ensure that no-one sleeps rough on the streets of Manchester and aims to change the mindset of those that just ‘walk on by’ people sleeping rough by encouraging social action.
