Where to rest those tired legs after the minithon

Sunday 19th October sees the inaugural FC United Minithon.

Half of the monies raised through runners’ sponsorship will go to club funds with the other half going to the Medequip charity, which provides hospital equipment for children.

Even if you aren’t taking part in Minithon you can still get involved on the day.

Immediately after the Minithon, all runners and spectators are invited back to the Chorlton Irish Club for refreshments and entertainment.

A disco will be provided until 3pm and the FCUM Juniors and Moston Active Drama (MAD) will be putting on a short play.

At 3pm, Monkeys Punk, FC United’s very own DF band, will be performing a host of classic songs many of which have been re-enacted on the terraces at Gigg Lane.

From 4pm to 6pm, the music continues with a disco and your chance to share you dulcet tones with fellow FC supporters. There will be an open mic, with thousands of backing tracks available, just ask George the kitman for your song and the microphone and sing away to your favourite tunes.

Manchester-based comedian Des Sharples has agreed to be the Awards Presenter for the Minithon Awards Winners. The presentation will be made around 2:30pm.

So instead of hobbling home after the run, hobble to the Irish Club and join in with the fun.
