Excuse me…Do these shorts make me look fast?

Dave Reynolds: last seen running fast at the turn of the millennium at Whitefriars Junior School. This will be my first ‘proper’ run and I’ll totally be “all the gear, no idea”. I only ever normally run when chasing a rugby ball or football!

We’re raising funds for the Citywise ‘Heroes Academy’ summer projects. The money raised at last year’s Great Manchester Run gave 120 young people access to the free holiday club. The play-based curriculum is designed to support their transition from primary to secondary school: learning in disguise as fun! We use the theme of superheroes to help young people discover what it takes to become an everyday hero.  #thecityneedsheroes – could you be one?
