On 15th July RMCH
Charity attended the official launch of the 2015 ASICS Greater
Manchester Marathon in Trafford. Held at The Lawn, Spinningfields,
the date for the race was confirmed as 19th April
The launch was particularly
noteworthy as RMCH Charity was announced as an official charity of
the marathon. Represented by mascot, Humphrey, RMCH Charity were
keen to run up support from potential runners. Armed with green
apples, to feed the health-conscious athletes, the team promoted
the limited number of free places the charity has available.
Opened by Race Director Simon Hill,
the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon takes in some of Manchester's
most famous sites, around the Trafford area of the city, promoted
as the UK's flattest, fastest and friendliest marathons. One of the
flattest in the world, with only 54m elevation gain, this makes the
race great for anyone looking to do their first marathon, or for
those wanting to set a new personal best time.
RMCH Charity are encouraging runners of a variety of abilities
to put their best foot forward with 2 and 4 leg relay options also
available. This gives runners who don't want to cover the full
marathon distance the opportunity to take part whilst still
experiencing the race day atmosphere.
