2014 Club La Santa City of Salford 10k
Take part in the 2014 Club La Santa City of Salford 10k. This is one of the most popular 10k runs in the North of England, with nearly 3,500 entrants in 2013. The nice dry, crisp weather, coupled with the new fast start made for some good PBs.
We are pleased to announce the race has a new sponsor, Club La Santa in Lanzarote, the World's number 1 sports and activity holiday resort. This enables us to enhance the event further and all finishers will receive a Club La Santa technical sports tshirt and a commemorative Club La Santa finishers medal.
The Club La Santa Salford 10k route starts on the Piazza between The Lowry Theatre and The Lowry Outlet Mall, and heads on closed roads westwards along Broadway, along a wide carriageway, allowing runners to get a fast start. The route then turns back into MediaCityUK, past the BBC North offices and across the bridge into Trafford Park. After a tour of Trafford Park, the route comes back across Millennium Bridge onto the Salford side, and a loop along the side of the Quays to the Watersports centre, before finishing in front of all the cheering friends, family and supporters in the Piazza.
In 2013, the Salford 10k saw a new mens champion, TesfayeDebele from Bradford Airedale in a fantastic time of 30:09. Last year's winner Mohamed Abu-Reseq of Altrincham was second, with Salford's Stuart Robinson third. The ladies 10k was won by Rachel Burns of Liverpool Harriers in a great time of 35:58, with Kirsty Longley of Liverpool Pembroke in second and Gwen Kinsey of Stroud + District in third.
The 2014 race will start at 10:15am and we have been promised by Metrolink that the trams will be stopped on schedule to allow the race to get away on time and in safety.
