Sports Tours International has announced early bird discounts for three of its UK races, We Love Manchester 10K, City of Salford 10K and Aintree 10K. All three have a reputation for good organisation with fast courses and competitive entry rates.
First up is the Manchester event, which returns on Sunday 13 July to the traditional start and finish at Sportcity, next to the Etihad Stadium. Leaving the track, the course moves through Sportcity and on to closed roads around the local area, before coming back into the Campus and a finish on the track itself. Register before 31 March for a discounted rate of just £13 (£15 unattached).
This is followed by the City of Salford 10K on Sunday 7 September. One of the most popular runs in the north of the country, the event attracted nearly 3,500 entrants last year. The 2013 race saw a new men's champion Tesfaye Debele, who completed the course in an impressive time of 30:09. Like the We Love Manchester 10K, the first discount deadline is set for 31 March and the price at only £13 (£15 unattached).
Last of the three events is the Grand 10K at Aintree, organised for Sunday 28 September. Taking place entirely within the grounds of the iconic Aintree Racecourse, the event has quickly established itself as one of the most unique on the circuit. Unsurprisingly, the racecourse is conducive to fast times, meaning a PB is a strong possibility. Again, runners are encouraged to register before 31 March to take advantage of the reduced rate £13 (£15 unattached).
