Surviving the Great Manchester Run

I spent the weeks leading up to the run filled with dread and panic that I couldn’t do it but the atmosphere of the event on the day really spurred me on! 

The support and encouraging cheers of the crowds along the route was exactly what was needed to keep going. Reaching the 7K mark and realising that I really could make it to the end without walking made all of the aches and pains of training worthwhile.

5 days until the Great Manchester Run!

There is now just 5 days to go until 13 members of the Cast UK team take on the Great Manchester Run through the city centre.

Cast UK take on the Great Manchester Run

On Sunday 22nd May, fifteen members of the Cast UK team will be taking part in the Great Manchester 10K Run.

We are running to raise money for the housing and homelessness charity, Shelter. For many of our team living and working in the centre of Manchester, we have noticed the steady increase in the numbers of homeless on the streets in the last few years. Figures from Shelter also show that there are more than 170 homeless households in Manchester, these people are not necessarily on streets but are families with no home of their own, living in emergency accommodation.
