Sitting this morning with aching legs, reflecting on another Great Manchester Run and our wonderful Kirsty Club runners. This year was obviously difficult following the recent terrorist attack. None of us were sure who would turn up, or if there would be much support on the streets. Until very recently we weren't even sure if the run would go ahead. We needn't have worried though because the city did us proud with a huge turnout and terrific support all day long.

Thanks so much to the organisers, the police, security staff, and of course our amazing Kirsty Club runners. This is such an important fundraiser for us so we're delighted it went ahead and we've been able to raise more funding for the awesome Francis House Children's Hospice.

See you next year!
