Event Description

It's a Piece of Cake 10K is a community-focused, chip-timed road race in Boggart Hole Clough, North Manchester around one of the region's largest and most beautiful parks. The course takes in three undulating laps of the park, starting and finishing near the lake.

Don't let the event’s friendly atmosphere detract from the challenges of this undulating course, which includes Angel Hill – it’s steep but thankfully short! The challenge of the hills draws many runners of all abilities from far and wide. You can view the route on Strava.

The race starts at 10:30am and race numbers can only be collected in person from race HQ between 9:00-10:15am. Registration on the day is only available 9.00-10:10am (£20 affiliated/£18 unaffiliated - cash only and with no T-shirt).

Car parking is in the park's main car park off Charlestown Road with race HQ near the lakeside cafe, 5 minutes’ walk down the hill from the main car park. 

The event offers cash prizes for first three finishers for each gender category, as well as other prizes for veteran and importantly cakes! Runners must be at least 18 years on the day of the race to enter.

We want to avoid environmental waste and so entrants before 4th April will be given the choice of entry plus a purple coloured technical T-shirt, or entry without a T-shirt (race entry price is lower for this option). Anyone entering after 4th April will not have the option a T-shirt. There will be a water station on the course and fruit/snacks available at the end.

The event will start with a warm-up led by the excellent Kate Frain from Witness the Fitness, who provide personal training and community-based group training at locations around Manchester. Check them out if you're looking to get fit and have fun!

Each year we encourage those attending to bake a cake for sale afterwards to raise money for the George House Trust, a local charity supporting people living with HIV. Cakes will be available to buy after the race.
