2017 Vice Chancellor's 5K Fun Run Review

Date: May 03, 2017


Well done to all 66 participants in this year’s VC Fun Run Event, the 5k was a huge success again, and we would like to thank all of our partners, for their assistance in the promotion and delivery of the event. Paul Green and our very own Niamh Gill were the winners of the Salford 10k places, as fastest Male and Female – well done to both!




The final amount generated is still being collated by Kidscan Children's Cancer Research but we have the current total at a massive £1,055.43. A big thank you to everyone who fundraised or participated! This helped to create a fantastic spectacle on Campus, as we now look ahead to a huge Summer of Sport for Team Salford, with the DSAS Sports Day and Salford 10k (in Partnership with Sports Tours International) over the next few months, as Team Salford look to continue to generate mass engagement in Sport, and create inclusive participation pathways into physical activity for all.

Those looking to continue to #GetActive within a Running Setting on a consistent basis can join us outside Mary Secole every Wednesday at 4.15pm, for our introduction to running sessions. We hope these sessions can act as a consistent form of engagement (for Students and Staff on Campus) over the summer period, as we look ahead to the Salford 10k Event on Saturday 3rd September.
