Property experts ready to go on the run in Manchester

12 March, 2008 – Property experts ready to go on the run in Manchester

Property specialists from Knight Frank are in training to raise hundreds of pounds for charity in the city's BUPA 10 kilometre run.

Two teams of runners from Knight Frank’s commercial and residential offices on King Street are devoting their free time to punishing training schedules in the build up to this year’s event, which is on Sunday May 18th.

Most of their 16 competitors have run the race before and they are hoping to do particularly well in the annual company team competition, where rivalry with the city’s other major property firms is always strong.

Surveyor Adam Burney, for Knight Frank, said: "We have some very good runners in the field this year, plus a couple of first timers. We are all training  some perhaps more seriously than others  and are aiming to raise as much money as we can for a variety of good causes."

Nine of the Knight Frank runners will be sponsored in aid of MacMillan Cancer Support.

The Manchester 10k is one of the biggest of the UK’s  Great Runs’ and the route takes the competitors through the heart of the city and out towards Old Trafford. The event traditionally attracts a host of celebrities from sport and television.

Adam added: "I am quite a keen runner myself, but whether you are a serious athlete or a fun runner, the Manchester 10k is an event to look forward to because it is always such a good atmosphere and a great way to view many of the fantastic sights that Manchester has to offer, which we sometimes take for granted in our everyday working lives."
