Team Hallé is back for 2019 and is stronger than ever! Since we first took part in the Great Manchester Run we have raised over £50,000 for the Charles Hallé Foundation, which supports our youth ensembles, education programme and community work. Now in our 15th year of taking part, we have over 25 runners, with a number taking on the half marathon.
We all have our own reasons for running – for some it is a once a year challenge, for others it is one race of many each year. With orchestral players, choir members and administrative staff all running, it is a rare opportunity for the whole Hallé family to work together with a common goal of raising much needed additional funds for the Charles Hallé Foundation. We also enjoy representing the Hallé in a wonderful Manchester occasion – after all, the route does come straight past our home at The Bridgewater Hall!
