10 weeks to the Manchester 10K Run – running for charity

With only 10 weeks to go until Sunday 22nd May and the Great Manchester Run we hope your training is going well and have some tips to keep you going and a fantastic plan to get you up to 10K 10km_training_programme_beginners

  • Push yourself and don’t give up without a fight! Running is hard at first (it’s normal!), expect some huffing and puffing, but keep pushing – not so hard that you feel dizzy or ready to pass out, just go beyond your “normal limits”.
  • Improve your diet – even as a beginner runner what you eat can be the difference between completing your daily goal and failing it. So, if you think your runners diet might need a tweak here and there, now is a good time.
  • Rest: You can’t train efficiently if fatigued. Take rest days seriously.
  • Running workouts – Don’t worry about how fast you run; just cover the distance–or approximately the distance suggested each day. Ideally, you should be able to run at a pace that allows you to converse comfortably with any training partners.
  • Remember the women and staff at MASH are right behind you  the funds you are raising will make a real impact on a woman’s life. At MASH we are aware that we cannot provide our life changing service without funding and you are crucial to ensuring we are here every day for the women
  • With just over 10 weeks to go this is a great time to get your JustGiving page live and start raising sponsorship. If you want any help or support Helen, our Fundraiser, would be delighted to hear from you on

If you haven’t signed up and are thinking of running for MASH we would love to hear from you on or Helen on 0161 274 3555
