Great Manchester Run – Alexander & Co winners in the small business challenge
The Great Manchester Run on Sunday 26 September saw Team Alexander out in force again raising money for this years’ chosen charity Sands, a UK wide stillbirth and neonatal charity.
We turned out a smaller team than previously Great Manchester Runs due to the postponements of the event due to the pandemic and personal commitments. However, with the team beating some amazing personal bests, this has already encouraged sign-ups for 2022, when we aim to be back in full force.
We were particularly pleased that we entered two teams into the small business challenge and not only did we win this category (with a combined time almost 24 minutes faster than the second place) but our second team managed to come third, taking two of the three top places in the mixed category.
All the partners and staff members here would like to thank and congratulate the Alexander & Co runners for their stella efforts at the Great Manchester Run. As well as it being such a fun day, we also raised valuable funds for this our charity, Sands.
After all the hard work of the day, team Alexander and its spectators settled at The Wharf in Manchester for a well-deserved rest, tucking into their infamous Sunday lunches (and a couple of drinks too).
