Team Venture Arts is ready to conquer the city's streets at this year's Great Mcr Run on Sunday 26th September.A drawing of a rabbit and a tortoise with the text less haste more speed

Last year's iconic event was cancelled due to Covid-19, leaving us with a hole in our events fundraising target. We are so pleased it's back, and we've already got a team of 10 for the 10k. As well as 5k and Half Marathon runners!   Our fundraising goal is to raise at least £4,000! This will go towards the ongoing and significant additional costs of running the dual in-studio and online programme that is now necessary to continue to provide the support our neurodiverse artists need and deserve.   You can help us get over the line by running for us to raise sponsorship, or by donating to Team Venture Arts here (or if you know one of our Team Venture Arts runners, you can sponsor them direct, via their own Just Giving page).   Whether you're peeling yourself off the couch to get to 5k; or you're a decent runner training to beat your 10k PB, or your ambition is to tackle a Half Marathon, you can be sure you're all elite heroes to us! Team Venture Arts - Great Manchester Run 2019 Interested in being a Team Venture Arts runner? Please contact Kathryn at events@venturearts.org 
  Our Team members will receive a digital support pack to help them with their fundraising efforts; a 'Less haste, more speed!' race T-shirt, specially designed by one of our artists, Sally Hirst (artwork pictured above) and a souvenir print to celebrate the completion of their 5k/10k/Half Marathon challenge. There'll also be some fun prizes up for grabs!   If you can, please do support us - and big thanks to everyone who has already lined up to run for us. Go Team Venture Arts!
