Emily will be running the Manchester 10k which will be her first 10k race and she wants to raise money for an amazing charity (OCD-UK) which has helped her so much since being diagnosed with OCD.
This year’s winners were Ed Fazakerley and Alice Stiles.
Runners up were Rocco Zaman-Browne and Mike Long for the men, and Trinity Powell and Lindsey Farrelly for the ladies.
Manchester Harriers have an athlete in the first 10 inductees of the IAAF World Athletics Heritage Plaque, the first British athlete to do so.
Emil was the last British athlete to win a long-distance running gold medal at the Olympic Games prior to Mo Farah’s 2012 double. Voigt’s success was 104 years earlier at the first London Olympic Games where he triumphed in the 5-mile event in a time of 25:11.
