The nation’s favourite 10k running event, the Bupa Great Manchester Run, has seen over a quarter of a million enthusiastic runners pound the streets of Manchester since its first staging in 2003.
First held in May 2003, the run was created as a legacy event following the 2002 Commonwealth Games. The Bupa Great Manchester Run has since grown into a weekend festival of sport, including mini and junior events and the Powerade Great CityGames (link to city games site) – a unique elite event that consistently brings together some of the world’s top sprinters on a purpose built track in the heart of the city centre. Winkball citizen video reporters were at the event to interview members of the public and celebrities alike, who all took part in the run to raise money for charity. Did you take part in the run? Do you have a message for those who took part? Leave a wink online now.
