FUN IN THE SUN AT THE UKFAST WE LOVE MANCHESTER 10K
In bright sunshine and warm temperatures, over 2000 runners took part in the annual UKFast We Love Manchester 10k at the Etihad Campus, Manchester.
Runners came together on a day where temperatures topped thirty degrees to complete one of the regions best loved 10k runs, where £1 from every runner goes directly to the official charity, the We Love Manchester Charity.
Kevin Harmer, UK Events & Sponsorship Manager for Sports Tours International said; “Experienced and first time runners battled not only the 10k course but the temperatures too – and it was amazing to see so many personal best times and smiling faces at the end.”
UKFast CEO Lawrence Jones MBE said; “Yet again the UKFast We Love Manchester 10k was an amazing success. Congratulations to all the runners who took part, showing amazing motivation and focus to take on the course in this heat.
“It’s an honour to be involved in such an inspirational event and to see Manchester come out and enjoy the race. Team UKFast is already in training for the UKFast City of Salford 10k in September!”
In the Men’s race, Mohammed Abu Rezeq from Altrincham & District AC in a superb time of 31 minutes 27 seconds defended his title with ease and from Liverpool Pembroke & Sefton Harriers & Athletics Club, Kirsty Longley took the women’s title in 35 minutes 28 seconds.
Chorlton Runners took the Affiliated Club Trophy for the Women and in the Men’s category it was Stockport Harriers taking home the title and trophy to their respective clubs.
