This event is awesome. We take part every year and whatever your fitness level, age, or reasons to take part, you are guaranteed a life-affirming experience.
My favourite 10K! Incredible support and entertainment all around the course to keep you going. Manchester is a special city and this is always a special event.
Rain, hail or shine, the amazing folk of Manchester come out every year to cheer you on! They pick you up at the start and carry you to the finish!
Wonderful atmosphere and would highly recommend this to anyone whether you're a 10K first timer or not.
A lovely, mainly flat route, which took in both the Etihad Stadium and Old Trafford. A well-supported event, which I will be back to do again next year.
A really good 10K race, can't wait to do it all again next year! Crowds were really supportive and the bands/charity points helped keep enthusiasm levels up.
