great

My first half and what a great race, the course is nice, flat, fast and pretty. its well organised and the amount of fellow runners really help set a great atmosphere.

what make this race amazing is the FANTASTIC local support, the streets are lined with people, cheering handing out sweats, water etc and i gave that many high 5s my hands was as sore as my legs by the finish.

good

Sports tours always put on a great race and this was no different.

staff and support was very good, medal is great, price was cheap as chips.

only thing for next time is the check if the sun is coming out to play. it was very hot on the day and as the course is very open, might need my hat an sunglasses..

up

felt uncomfortable at this race. i run just under 30 min 5km pace and was lapped by almost everbody. 

that is not the fault of sale harriers but i just wish i had known beforhand.

it is a nice run and very friendly if you run sub 25 mins or dont mind being at the back, its worth a go as it is great value,

but i wont be back until i am much faster.

ok

me and my wife booked all 4 races, we are at the slower runners and soon felt out of place at this run, then to add insult to injury, all the goody bags ran out. we fininshed 5km in 30 mins which we know is slow but didnt feel very fair to not even get a goody bag.

be fast

This is a very fast race, it can be a little intimerdating for the slower runner.

That being said it is very friendly and well organised.

if you dont mind being lapped it is good value for money and when i get faster i will be back to try again

pacer team

i ran this as a pacer last year, fantasic support and really brings the city together.

would definetly recommend this run, its a little expensive but still worth it at least once.

i will be pacing again this year so look forward to seeing you there.

Did the 15km run

The Manchester rain was out with avengence. Puddles a plenty and lots of mud.

The course was challegeing with plenty of hills to keep your legs pumping. plenty of smiling helpers though to help keep peoples sprits high.

Really well organised and friendly.

Will be doing this one again next year..

Terrible

This was a total let down.. Cheap medals tacky t-shirt and to top it off the distance came up short by about 300m. £35 total rip off.. The only saving grace was the volunteers ,who did an outstanding job. I will never do a Human race run again..  The london event was surposed to be outstanding but i think Mancheater was treated as an after thought. Gutted as was really looking forward to it.
