Manchester 10k – 20th May Mixing with the Elites

by Sam Amend - 14th July 2012 | General News

Loved this race, competitive but great road surfaces and a 5k pb within the 10k.  some windy parts of the course but the icing on the cake was seeing haile gebrselassie on the opposite side of the road racing at speed to go on and win the race.  I was pleased to be in a small elite group of ladies and come in 8th overall, a PB of 35.43 and not bad for a night of no sleep and a stressful day of commuting upto the venue.  Definately one I will do again due to great organisation and ease to get round the course.  I have finally broken the 36mins barrier that has haunted me for nearly 2 years…….
