We often complain
about what the councils don't do, but Manchester City Council deserve nothing but
praise for the "Great Manchester Run". The runners arrived in a happy and cheerful
mood, like daisies on a fresh sunny morning. The smiling faces and camaraderie was

climb their own Everest, beat their own records or dress up and run for the fun
of it. At the end a nice medal to prove to everyone, "I did it !"
