Runners in the north west seeking a summer PB may be interested to hear that they can still take register for of one of the quickest races on the circuit, the We Love Manchester 10K. The reduced price entry for the event, scheduled for Sunday 13 July, is set at just £15 (or £13 for club runners), closes this evening however, with prices thereafter at £20 and £18 respectively.
The race returns with its traditional start and finish at the Regional Athletics Track, Sportcity, next to the Etihad Stadium, home to Manchester City FC. After a first loop of around 6.5km, the course comes 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.
Previously known as the ‘People’s Run’, last year’s race drew in 3,000 runners and organisers Sports Tours International are hopeful they can improve on this turnout on Sunday. The 2013 race saw Mohammed Abu-Rezeq take first place in a speedy 30:39, with Gina Paletta top in the female competition in 35:31.
