Co-founder Ben Green said: “We are delighted to be returning to Altrincham for a third consecutive year and building on the success of the previous year’s events to become a regular fixture of the Altrincham event scene.
"We are extremely grateful to Trafford Council for their support and collaboration, enabling us to put on what is set to be a fantastic event. We can’t wait to welcome all of the runners who will be taking part no matter if this will be their first or fiftieth time running a 10k.”
Cllr Cath Hynes, Trafford Council’s Executive Member for Leisure, Arts, Culture and Heritage, added: “We’re always happy to work with partners like RunThrough. The Altrincham 10k will be a fantastic event to watch but even better to take part in. It will be a great way to keep fit and challenge yourself, and runners can also raise money for a great cause at the same time.”
