This years Asics Great Manchester Run was filled with Joy, Tears and laughter. Sports King Teamed up with Asics to put a few of the staff through a marathon relay, Owner William Stephan and Staff Members Stephen Roberts, Matthew Stephan and Lee Lambert trained hard over the short period they had before the race on April 6th 2014.
We parked the team bus on the E2 carpark next to Asics and grabbed a bit to eat for breakfast in the VIP tent, a few famous faces but all in a concentrated mind set for the race.
As the first runners set out we waited a futher 15 minutes for the Relay runners to take to the start, Matthew took on the first leg and completing it in under 56 minutes, William took to the second leg after catching the tram with Stephen and Lee to the next start point in Timperley, over the next few hours it was a race against time for us taking pictures at the different locations.
Overall finish was in 12th out of the 143 teams and 10th overall in the Mens. Next year the lads aim to train well in advanced and hopefully secure a top 5 position.
