The date for this year’s City of Manchester 10k run has now been confirmed as Sunday 5th July and will start and finish at SportCity, Eastlands.
This is the “People’s run”, and Manchester runners, both fun and serious, will take to the streets with many taking part to raise funds for charity. Over 2,000 runners are expected to descend on SportCity.
The run will be officially started at The Regional Athletics Arena, Eastlands at 9.30am on Sunday 5th July by the Lord Mayor of Manchester.
The route this year for the Manchester 10k will be a 2 lap course to accommodate far greater numbers but will finish on the Regional Athletics running track at Sportcity.
There are four nominated charities this year: Francis House, Christies, Cystic Fibrosis and Caudwell Children, although many other runners will be running to raise money for other worthwhile causes and charities.
Runners taking part can run for themselves, for one of the nominated charities or for a charity of their choice. Teams of 3 can run as a group from work and take part in the Corporate Team Challenge of the Manchester 10k.
Race Director Graham Jackson says: “Whilst the winner’s times will be impressive this is undoubtedly a race for everyone. There can be only one winner but the real heroes are those running for their own personal goals and their respective charities. It’s important to realise that whilst the winner will finish in around 30 minutes, people will range right through to the last runner who will probably finish the course in approx 1 hour 50 minutes but you can rest assured they will get the biggest cheer of the day as spectators appreciated why they were taking part!”
