In less than a week team Elucigene will be strapping on their running shoes and taking part in the Great Manchester Run; Europe’s biggest 10k.

The event will take place on Sunday 10th May with over 40000 runners from across the country making their way to Manchester to take part. The run attracts a number of elite athletes every year, and abilities range from professionals to those taking part just for fun.

Eleven of these will be our own runners who have experienced eight gruelling months of training since signing up in September. The run is renowned for its fantastic atmosphere and we are very excited to be joining such an iconic part of Manchester’s culture.

Our team will be running on behalf of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, the UK wide charity who invest in cutting edge research, deliver practical support and offer a wide range of welfare grants to those suffering from cystic fibrosis. Their aim is to ensure that everyone afflicted with cystic fibrosis is able to receive the care they need regardless of where they live and their circumstances.

For all those involved: good luck, we’ll see you at the finishing line.
