With over 3,000 runners, ranging in all ages and abilities, joining us at the Etihad Campus for the 2014 We Love Manchester 10k, we can't wait for another great event for 2015.
The 2015 Decathlon We Love Manchester 10k Run returns on Sunday 12th July 2015, with its traditional start and finish at the Regional Athletics Track, Sportcity, next to the Etihad Stadium, home to Manchester City FC.
The officially measured route of the Decathlon City of Manchester 10k run, which the event is sometimes better known as, 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, the Decathlon City of Manchester 10k 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. This Decathlon Manchester 10k is well known as one of the most friendliest 10k races around!
