I undertook my first run around manchester airport today. It WAS supposed to be a 4k run.......we were told mid week it was slightly longer......it turned out to be 5.75k!!
Tough going as very rugged ground. Rough dry soil. Narrow trails. Potholes. Hilly etc.
Did it in about 47 minutes.......I forgot to stop my watch whilst I was accepting my medal from Gary Lineker...whoops!!!
I thought I came in near the back.....but it turned out I was around 50-60th.....judging on the numbers of finishers waiting for transport back to the airport.
Those planes got really close overhead lol
The sun was shining and it was a glorious day. A few dressed up in fancy dress. Raised about £7k for Medcare/comic relief I believe.
Was thinking of doing a 5k next year but it turns out I have already done it now, even if it wasn't all running i am still chuffed! Hope everyone had a great weekend. Happy trails x
