We spoke to race organisers, elite athletes and a family running the 10K dressed as the Hulk about why they are racing on Sunday.

Returning for the first time in more than two years due to the pandemic, Manchester City Centre will once again see thousands take part in The Great Manchester Run.

The 10k event will take place on Sunday and whether you do it for the challenge, to fundraise for charity, or simply for fun it’s open to everyone.
