Just watched the coverage of the Great Manchester Run on BB2!

What a wonderful event this has turned out to be. Not only does it showcase the city, but more importantly it brings so many people together with so many stories and worthwhile causes!

This led me to think about doing the run next year with my fellow Manc forum members! :)

Not only is it a good excuse to meet up, but we can raise some money for a good cause!

So who wants to do it? :)

I am built for long distance running and used to be quite good but in the past few years I've developed asthma (the dirty Manchester air maybe?)and now I can't do it anymore. :( I only cycle these days. But I'd be there taking photos of you lot. ;)

Maybe we should do a group cycle around Manc then shortly afterwards. Like a Paraolympics kinda thing...

Caw!

Can you walk?

If not, we'll push you around the circuit, as long as you build a decent a bogey kart! :)



Washing day on Gorsey Bank Estate. Old pram wheels in the foreground are a little boys dream for constructing a go-kart or 'bogey'.

Well it's only 10k but I don't think it's happening jrb, sorry! The thought of merely walking when everyone is running/jogging it, I dunno........

I'll sponsor you all but I'm a student so don't expect too much. ;)

You need an incentive Caw!

Seeing as your a student, why don't you hand out flyers around the course?

That should get you through!
