With less than a week until race day, those considering taking part in the We Love Manchester 10K are encouraged to register to be a part of what is now regarded as one of the most popular events in the northern calendar. Affectionately known as the ‘People’s Race', the 10k is set to build on last year’s turnout when almost 3000 runners took part.
The 10K boasts a fitting start and finish at the Regional Athletics Track, Sportcity, next to the Etihad Stadium, home to Manchester City FC. Moving out of Sportcity, the course loops at 6.5k comes back into the campus to let runners enjoy a cracking finale on the track.
Last year saw the leading runners take advantage of the fast and flat course, with Mohammed Abu-Rezeq claiming his third successive victory in a time of 30:39 and Jessica Coulson taking top position in the women's field in 34:04.
Cash prizes for a race that is known to offer a prime opportunity for setting a PB will be of interest to those likely to finish high up the field: £250 for the winner, £150 for second place and £75 for third place.
Standard entry is priced at just £25, or £23 for club-runners, with a Toddler Trot available for 0-5 year olds. More information and registration details are available here.
