Runner Feature – Run Wild Manchester

Run Wild Manchester is first and foremost a community, encouraging one another to live a healthy lifestyle. With groups for all abilities, students, staff and alumni of the University of Manchester meet once a week to take part in a running session around the streets of Manchester.Run Through Group Photo 

Members run with us for all different reasons, with Ellie Caitlin Williams saying, “I first started running when doing my A levels because I decided I needed to improve my fitness level. When I first started university, I felt very lonely and isolated and running massively helped my mental health and made me feel far more confident. Joining a running club also helped me to meet lots of people at university… Overall, I run for my mental health as it allows me to think clearly in stressful situations.

 

As a community of runners, we like to choose events that we can all participate in together. The Run Media City event series was the perfect event for this and a great way to keep members training, especially when fewer runners were about in the summer holidays. The 3 events were really well organised with members improving dramatically over the course of the 3 months with several PB’s being achieved by the final event.
