Organisers Sports Tours International is offering a January discount for the We Love Manchester 10k. Known as 'the people's race', the event is scheduled for 13 July and will see runners start and finish at the Regional Athletics Track, Sportcity next to the Manchester City's Etihad stadium.
For 2014, competitors will be able to enjoy a slightly modified start, allowing for a smoother exit from the running track. 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.
The certified route with measured KM markers consists of a first loop of around 6.5km, before the run comes back into the Etihad Campus to start the second shorter second loop and a finish on the track in front of hundreds of cheering friends, family and supporters.
Last year event saw over 2,000 runners take part, with Mohammad Abu-Rezeq taking top place in 30:39, with Salford Harriers’ Joe Bailey second in 31:02 and club-mate Tarus Elu in third position (31:15). Gina Paletta was the leading female runner in 35:31.
Interested participants can take advantage of a £10 discount if they register before 31 January. For more information, visit the event website.
