Alas, last years run was the last of its kind here. It has now been 'upgraded' to
the Manchester 10K run which means an extra mile and it is altogether a much bigger
event. It certainly felt much longer than last year LOL. This race took place on
26th May which was a bank holiday monday. It started at 11am and the course was once
around the city centre starting at Albert Square and finishing at the G-Mex Centre.
I forgot to mention last year that there are quite a few 'celebs' who take part in
these races, soap stars mostly. I can't say I've ever seen a famous person on these
tracks but I wouldn't know a soap star if one ran me over LOL! The weather behaved
which was nice but the race got off to a slow start as there were so many runners.
It took us all about 10 minutes to get away from the starting line. A good run but
completely exhausting especially the incline leading up to the finish in the G-Mex.
The tv camera's were in here. It was still very busy a long time after the race was
