Get on your mark, get ready, set, go. The Great Manchester 10k run commences once again in the United Kingdom later today where an estimated quarter of a million enthusiastic runner will hit the ground running through the streets of Manchester city. The Manchester 10k run was established in 2003 and is the largest and most prestigious mass participation run in the United Kingdom.
This year, Gebrselassie is chasing his fifth title. The veteran Ethiopian will not be taking part in the Olympic marathon but did say to UK’s dailymail.co.uk that he is looking forward to the course, which he has won over the last three years.
The race provides money for various charities and is primarily sponsored by Bupa, the largest British healthcare organization in the United Kingdom.
Stay tuned for the results of this amazing spectacle.
