Trafford Labour councillors battle the elements to run the Trafford 10k event

The Trafford 10k run was completed today by some very brave people who had to run in the rain and freezing cold conditions.

With the weather getting worse by the minute the entire event could have been called off, organisers though was not even close to calling it off as many runners had turned up and all up for the 10K run, runners are very brave individuals and run in all conditions.IMG_20190310_125222~2

Urmston Trafford Labour councillor Joanne Harding got a great time finishing in 1hr and 14 seconds and 53 seconds.

Liz Patel finished in a good time of 1 hr 26 minutes and 12 seconds.

Well done to all raising money for charity and hope some of them will be competing in the Manchester marathon next month which we also hope will be run in better conditions.
