Manchester Marathon 2016

Manchester Marathon 2016

Race Report
This year the Pops have gone marathon-mad! Andy Grant shares his race report from Manchester, where a total of 6 Poplar runners completed the 26.2 miles. Hopefully this will help inspire the runners in London tomorrow.

Ethiopia is a country of contradictions. On the approach to land I flew between mountains, over the top of deep ravines, saw lush green expanses of forest followed by mud flats. Bole airport is a no go area for western women so the hotel arranged a private car to collect me. The journey to the hotel was an interesting one, I don’t think anyone had passed their driving test nor owned a road worthy car. I was relieved to get to…
