Congratulations to all our students, staff and alumni – including our Chancellor Lemn Sissay who ran the Manchester 10k this weekend. A wave of purple took over the city with hundreds of students running, and many raising money for some great causes including the University’s scholarship fund.
There was also a magnificent wave of support at the UoM Wall of Sound with staff and students cheering runners on, and giving everyone a boost. The event was fantastic with a brilliant atmosphere and almost perfect weather for a Sunday run. A massive congratulations to all involved. (Even Barnabee got in on the action).
Missed out on the 10k this year? Or been inspired by the Purple t-shirts? There’s plenty of Sport to get involved with at the University, whether its playing for a sports team, joining a society, or taking some of the Be Active classes.
