Saturday 9th May – Mini Great Manchester Run

Report from Becky Lodge: Holly Davey, Jenson Brogden and Aston Brogden braved the rain on the M62 on Friday night to travel over to Heaton Park in Manchester for the Morrisons Junior and Mini Great Manchester Run.  After a wet and blustery evening the gang were up early on Saturday morning and ready for action with 2500 other enthusiastic young runners.

Aston was first to race in the 2km Mini Run for children aged 3-8 years.  He speedily finished the course in 10.48, 10thPlace in his wave.

Holly and Jenson both took part in the Junior 2 mile race.  Holly finished 14th in her age group in a time of 14.10 and Jenson was 10th in his age group in a time of 13.04.

They all had a fabulous day and enjoyed watching the Great Manchester Games in the City Centre afterwards.  They even had an opportunity to meet some of their Sporting Idols and get autographs and photos with them.  Here they are celebrating their achievement with Wilson Kipsang.
