I have taken part in the Great Manchester Run every year since 2008 with only two exceptions. In 2010 I was training for a marathon just a few weeks later, and last year I was heavily pregnant with Tall Boy. On both those occasions I have been out to support the runners and cheer them across the finish line. It’s the largest 10K in Europe and the atmosphere in Manchester on race day is electric. The city buzzes with the excitement of a beehive, you can actually feel it.
