The City of Salford 10K is becoming one the most popular and recognised 10ks in the North West, with over 3,500 entrants in 2014. The attractive September date coupled with a new fast start makes for the ideal course to get your hands on that all important personal best!
Also known as the City of Manchester 10K, We Love Manchester 10K Run returns with its traditional start and finish at the Regional Athletics Track, Sportcity, next to the Etihad Stadium, home to Manchester City FC. The route starts on the track before heading out through Sportcity and on to closed roads around the local area. After a first loop of around 6.5km, participants head back into the campus for the start of a second loop and a finish on the track itself, in front of hundreds of cheering friends, family and supporters. The race is well known as one of the friendliest 10k races around.
One for horse racing fans, the Grand 10K at Aintree Racecourse, home to the Grand National, returns for a third year. The event attracted over 900 runners in 2014, ranging in all ages and abilities.
