As long as you leave it in neutral you shouldn't have a problem. If you pick the Front end up you definitely shouldn't have a problem. That is the beauty of a manual transmission.

I have a 03 Focus (std 5 speed) and flat tow it behind my class A motorhome all the time and it has never added any mileage to the odometer. Leave it in neutral, steering wheel unlocked, emergency brake off and flat tow it all you want. It's much better then hauling a tow dolly around. Just remember to NEVER back-up when flat towing any vehicle. That was an expensive lesson for me when I first started flat towing. Good Luck!
