With a 10k and a half marathon to choose from, the Simplyhealth Great Manchester Run is a running event like no other. A celebration of everything that’s great about the city, the event is known for its buzzing atmosphere, incredible supporters and Manchester anthems that rock the city’s streets. The 10k course goes past Old Trafford, the Imperial War Museum and the Lowry before heading back to the spectator packed finish line. Suzanne Mann took part in the 10K race, finishing in 1:42:54.
Calderdale Way Relay
The Calderdale Way is a 50-mile (80 km) long-distance footpath in West Yorkshire. It was devised in the 1970s to draw attention to some of the attractions in the district of Calderdale, which was being established at that time. It is also the basis for the annual Calderdale Way Relay organised by Halifax Harriers.
Thanks to all runners who took part, as well as to Nathan Crossley who did a fantastic job of organising the teams. The Mixed Team finished in 40th position and the A Team finished in 59th.
