Greg’s step-by-step guide to half marathons

Greg is running the Great Manchester Run 2017!

A solitary month lies between myself and the zenith that is the Manchester half marathon. No doubt in the future paeans will be written of such a feat, but for now I do not require your pens, quills or keyboards. I require your hard-earned money. The cause is great and noble and I entreat you for your charity. Citywise is a charity that helps disadvantaged children in Glasgow and Manchester, and it is essential to raise the appropriate funds to run a summer camp for these same kids. My target is a mammoth £250- I am at the mercy of your kindness.

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?
