Azeem Amir, who hit the headlines last year when he became the youngest blind runner in the world to complete a Tough Mudder, has confirmed that he will take on the Simplyhealth Great Manchester Run 10K. Azeem will be one of 25,000 runners competing on Sunday 28 May, a turnout that makes it Europe’s largest 10k road race.
Saturday’s (25 March) inaugural Chester Ultra made a lasting impression on all who took part with a classy debut for this new race, part of the GB Ultras series of endurance events. The new ultra enjoyed a picturesque 52-mile route that was a mixture of canals, trails and hills with warm, sunny weather as a bonus.
The first International Cross Country was held in 1903 as a competition between the four home nations of the UK before expanding to include European teams; the first African team to compete was Tunisia in 1958. A junior men's race was added from 1961 and more controversially at the time, women were included in 1967. The event became the IAAF World Championships in 1973 and the latest was held at Kampala, Uganda on Sunday (26 March).
