The Great Manchester Run

Charlie Arnell was 9th British lady finisher in the Great Manchester 10k Run, where time stood still as thousands of competitors paused to remember the Arena victims. Among the field were the Men’s race winner Sir Mo Farah (28:27) and Ladies winner Ethiopian champion Tirunesh Dibaba.(31:08)
Although Arnell just missed out on the cash prizes which were awarded to the top six British finishers, this was an invaluable experience rubbing shoulders with the best with no entry fee or queues! A brilliant day and a good job done said Charlie with a (36:56) finish at 17th out of the 30 elite girls in what were very hot conditions on a not particularly fast course. Next race the Torbay Half Marathon!
