The UKFast We Love Manchester 10K is known for its fast route and friendly atmosphere. Welcoming all abilities, it is the perfect 10K running event to beat your personal best, meet other runners and raise money for a charity of your choice. With over 3,000 entrants in 2016, the UKFast We Love Manchester continues to grow in popularity and is fast becoming one of the most popular 10k events in the North West.
The race starts on the Regional Athletics Track before heading out through Sportcity and on to closed roads around the local area. After a first loop of around 6.5km, the route heads back into the Campus for the start of a second loop and a finish on the Regional Track itself, in front of hundreds of cheering friends, family and supporters.
An impressive 2,014 people finished the race, including our lone Strider, Andrew Long. Also amongst the finishers was a certain Mr Ron Hill, who Andrew managed to bump into at the end!
