Hedon Fitmums – Manchester Run for Cancer Research UK

Fitmums early birdsFITMUMS & FRIENDS in Hedon are surely one of the most successful and popular community groups to have emerged in the town in recent years. Fitmums pink-clad runners have become a familiar sight on the town’s streets and in the surrounding Holderness villages.

As well as providing a supportive social club to encourage people to run and keep fit, the group has also supported individual members to get involved in many charity fundraising running events. One such event was held on Sunday in Manchester and twenty-eight Fitmums and Friends were up in the early hours of the morning to catch their 6 am bus to the event.

The Manchester Winter Run was taking place to support Cancer Research UK on Sunday 28th February 2016 and over 3,000 people were expected to take part including our intrepid group, most of whom were expected to take part in the 10km run.

We will bring you more news of how our local runners fared, but in the meanwhile find out more about the day on Facebook and Twitter:
