Running for The Wellspring Stockport

Lesley GMRThe Great Manchester Run had it all this year, sun, torrential rain, fancy dress and celebrities.  Around 35,000 runners took to the streets of the Manchester city centre on Sunday 22nd May to take part in the Great Manchester Run 10km.  The fancy dress costumes were amazing, with one guy carrying an old fridge on his back, all the way…yes the whole 10km.  It was humbling to see so many heart-felt messages on the backs of runners’ vest saying why they were taking part.

So how did Steve and Lesley go on?  Steve, who had done very little training sprinted around the route with no problem and ended up waiting at the 9km mark for Lesley to finally come down into the last leg approximately 10 minutes later.  So they crossed the line together, their time 1:12:18, not bad going for a couple of novices.  The total amount raised for The Wellspring Stockport was £377.00; thank you to everyone who donated.
