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.

The trials and tribulations of training for the run have been experienced by almost all of us and there has been plenty of Monday morning achy legs in the office, although we are all enjoying the competitive aspect which is seeing us eagerly comparing split times on a weekly basis!

The good news is that, with 5 days to go, the spirit of our team remains high and we are now looking forward to the big day and focusing on the task at hand which is ultimately to raise money for an excellent cause.

This year we are running to support Shelter, a national charity which helps people struggling with the problem of homelessness. The ever increasing problem of homelessness is very evident to all of us on a daily basis, with many of our team working and living in the city centre of Manchester. Shelter is an excellent organisation looking to change the lives of homeless people for the better and our aim is raise as much money as possible to help their good work.

Look out for us on the day sporting our Shelter running vests (although we’ll be running fast so you might just miss us)!
