Unlike the weather, the atmosphere on the day was fantastic, and it was great to spot Mencap t-shirts in the crowd. Mencap would like to say a huge thank you to all of our runners who took part and to congratulate them on crossing the finishing line.
Mencap supporters were invited to join the cheering squad at the 6k point outside the Imperial War Museum North. Volunteers with a learning disability also joined in the fun and enjoyed creating the volume needed to encourage those runners getting tired legs!
This year the Mencap team included Alex Heywood and his two brothers. Alex has a learning disability and has worked for Mencap as an inclusion advisor for over 3 years. He finished the race in just over an hour.
All the money raised will help Mencap to continue working with children and adults with a learning disability.
