Sadly, during lockdown, Great Run Local ceased its Sunday morning runs in Wythenshawe Park. However, some local worthies have got together with Run Britain to organise a replacement for the 5km and 2km events. This is especially important for the youngsters who take part in the 2km runs - possible Olympic champions of the future start their running careers here. Today just a modest number of us took part in the second of these Sunday morning runs. Well done everyone concerned, and long may they continue.
It was good to meet with a variety of folk, and I thank Richard Bacon (80) for pacing me around the course in a little under 27 minutes.
