Bee supportive of OUR NHS at City of Manchester 10K
Run for frontline workers in the We Love OUR NHS Manchester 10K.
The City of Manchester 10K will now take place on 22 November and has been renamed as a tribute to our Manchester NHS superheroes who have gone above and beyond in the call of duty. Organised by The Running Bee Foundation and now known as We Love OUR NHS Manchester 10K, it invites runners to show their support in return.
The original event was to be held for Sunday 5 July but the ongoing situation with Covid-19 led to it being re-scheduled to Sunday 22 November. There is a new and exciting route around the scenic Heaton Park, all of which is on closed roads. The open space makes it ideal for spectators, and cowbells and other items will be provided for them to ‘make some noise’ as the runners pass.
Water will be provided at the start, half way point and finish and there will be plenty of marshals plus route markers every 1K. The Athlete Village will keep runners, their friends and families entertained and there is a technical T-shirt and commemorative medal for every finisher. This event also includes 'MyFirst' Mile to encourage people to complete the distance while experiencing a big city race atmosphere.
This event is supporting the Manchester Foundation Trust Charity – an NHS charity that fundraises on behalf of hospitals across the area. Profits from the race will be donated to the charity enabling them to continue their work, providing outstanding treatment, research and care to patients. Viv Williamson at the Manchester Foundation Trust Charity welcomes any help saying: “We’d love it if those taking part would like to fundraise for the charity and support Manchester and Trafford Hospitals.”
We have clapped for the NHS every Thursday as a way of showing appreciation for their tireless efforts on our behalf. Here is another way of thanking them whilst enjoying a 10K or 1 Mile and all being well, in the company of others.
