So how does it work?
Register as part of a team (maximum of 6 people per team) or on your own. It will be roughly 5K, depending on the route you take, but take it at your own pace.
Upon arrival at All Saints Park register with your university, you will receive a map with 20 landmarks across the city, with the finish line being at the Sugden Sports Centre.
After a short warm up and brief it will be your chance to explore the city, you have until 14.00 to make it to the Sugden. Make sure you take a selfie, with all team members included, at each landmark and then share it on Twitter and Instagram @SportManchester & @MMUSport #GMSelfieRun along with your team name. You will need to show all 20 selfies at the finish line, and remember the best selfies will win a prize, so the more creative, the better!
The first team to arrive at the finish line with all 20 selfies will be crowned the winner and receive the overall prize. There will also be overall runners up prize, as well as a prize for the winner from each institution, so do not miss out!
As an added bonus there are a few bonus venues with spot prizes for the best Selfie at these locations, all to be revealed on the day!
Those of you who are keen Pokemon Go players there is a prize for the best selfie with a Pokemon at any of the landmarks. There are many Pokestops and Gyms along the way, so make sure you have a full phone battery! Gotta catch'em all!
