Everything was brilliant and the atmosphere was great, I only scored lower on the course as lapping yourself 4x isn’t the best, as you know how long left you have left at every lap!!

Good fast course, only problem was the footy fans getting in the way going across the bridges going to the match.

I really enjoyed it. Brilliant warm up, stewards were motivating all around the course and other runners were all lively.

Enjoyed the event, especially because it was a midweek event. The only slight issue was that it was at the same time as Manchester United game. Let's just say some of the home fans wasn't very supporting of some of the runners. Overall was a good event.

As you’d organised this race on the same night that Manchester United were at home I was stuck in traffic on the M60 and missed the race. Very very disappointing

This was my second run with run through and lets do this. Being completely honest I enjoyed my first one at Tatton park so much I couldn’t wait to do another. This one was a little more special as it was my late mothers birthday on the 25th May and wanted to celebrate by doing the run media city. The course and the team were awesome could not fault anything. The amount of energy the team put in and organisation is amazing. All runners had an incredible time you could really feel the vibe. I was expecting it to be a little quiet as it was a mid week and evening run and it was the total opposite which was awesome. Loved every minute and step of the 10k. I even managed to knock 2 minutes 10 seconds off my PB with the MC telling me to get the bell rang. Totally awesome all of it!!
