FC women's team sign up for the Minithon - register today!

Fresh out of hospital, club press officer, Andy Walker and Minithon organiser, Phil Frampton on his crutches, have signed up for the 19 October FC 5k Minithon & Sponsored Walk to raise funds for the club. The FC women’s team will also be joining in and big respect too to Paul Cavanagh who will be cycling from Whitefield to Boggart Hole Clough, running the course then finishing off with an ice bucket challenge. A triathlon with a twist, if you like.

If you can walk or crawl, you can join Margy on the course around Boggart Hole Clough. If you can run, you can challenge last year’s fastest player, Tom Greaves or his team mates. We are expecting a bumper turnout of both players and supporters as the club goes on display in the first north Manchester Minithon to raise funds for the club and our partner charity, ACE. We are also being joined by Moston Juniors, who in a fine gesture have agreed to raise funds and divide them between their club, FCUM and ACE.

Sign up now here and come to Boggart Hole Clough to “Run, Walk or Crawl??? to raise funds for the club. It’s just £10 to register online or £20 on the day. We have some great prizes this year for the winners of various categories including Best Headgear, Best Dressed Entrant and Branch, Fastest Dog & Owner, first player home etc - all given out at the After Run Social in the scenic Lakeside Café.
Please note that registration on the day is £20 for adults and £3 for juniors.

This year entrants again have the option of raising funds entirely for FC United, entirely for our partner charity, ACE, or jointly for ACE and FC United together, as you and your friends and family will see when you register. More info here

You can back any of the runners and riders below. The Santa Monicans (£565) have raced into second. Will the power of the Yankee Dollar overtake Hobbling Hipster Phil Frampton (£750)? John Bradley is still doing well (£523), while Triathlon Kavanagh (£360) has stormed past Baglady (£345) and Old Grey Mare Stott (£185) heads the chasing pack with Vinny Thompson (£100) making a late charge on the rails. Newcomer, Craig Lindfield (£75) leads the players stakes followed but there’s late money on Margy (£35).
