The BUPA Great Manchester Run took place in Manchester, on 17th May 2009. The 10km charity run attracts both amateurs, many in costume, and professional runners alike.
The event has been growing over the years since it started in 2003. We were delighted that friend and loyal supporter of We Are Survivors, Christos Tspraonius, decided that his run was going to be in aid of We Are Survivors and spent much preparation in the gym, early morning training and collecting sponsorship money.
Marathon runner Haile Gebrselassie won the men’s 10km race despite a strong head wind and wet weather and our own champion, Christos finished in 56mins and 5 seconds! Well done Champ!
