Run Media City 5k & 10k – Thursday 31st August 2023 at 7pm!

Come and join us on Thursday 31st August for our next event in the 2023 Run Media City 5k & 10k Series.

Starting and finishing in the centre of Media City you will head out around a 2.5km loop that runs over the canal and runs past the imperial war museum along with the ITV and BBC television studios.

The race involves laps, the course is flat and quick. There will be 2 lap for the 5k, 4 laps for the 10k. The course follows the paths and pavements inside the centre of media city. This is not a closed road race. Each kilometre will be accurately marked out and we have plenty of helpers to encourage you on your way to the finish line.

Included in your entry fee is a unique themed medal, chip timed results, free official photos and post race goodies.


We have been extensively researching into what runners consider important, and sustainability is fast becoming the most important area. Click HERE to see what RunThrough is doing for sustainability.

T-Shirts at events have been a hot topic mainly around them not being a high enough quality to wear on a regular basis. So we have decided to tackle this by offering a RunThrough Kit Technical T-Shirt with a retail value of £22 for £12  with the addition of the Tatton Series logo printed on the chest.

We can do this with our partner RT Kit as part of a strategic decision to raise awareness about the quality of the product whilst reducing the overall cost of events for those who would prefer not to have this included.

If you already have the official 2023 Media City 5k & 10k T shirt in Red and want a different colour, just add to checkout as normal and then send an email to us at  with your order number and the colour of the T shirt you would like us to print the logo on. The range of RunThrough Kit In the Zone T-Shirt colours can be found here: FEMALE and MALE

Come and enjoy the day with us; we hope to see you there!
