Ultimedia Are Getting Ready to Tackle The Manchester 10k!


That’s right, the Great Manchester Run 2018 is only days away! Eeek!


Our competitors are gearing up both mentally and physically to conquer the Ultimedia Team Challenge on the 20th May, to raise money for the Alzheimer's Society.


For the last few weeks and months our runners have been readying themselves with intensive training - pouring blood, sweat and let’s face it, probably a few beers tears into their training runs. All in preparation for the city’s biggest and best weekend of running.


For a cause close to our hearts


We know that Alzheimer's disease can have a huge impact on all of us in some way, which is why we are proud to be running on behalf of the the Alzheimer’s Society, and to support a cause close to all of our hearts.


Sadly, almost all of us have experienced a family member or friend who has suffered from, or been lost to this cruel disease. Which is why the team here at Ultimedia have decided to challenge ourselves in support of the Alzheimer's Society, a charity that’s aiming to transform the landscape of dementia forever.


We want to raise as much money and awareness for the Alzheimer's Society as possible, in the hopes that one day a society is created where those affected by dementia are not only supported and accepted, but are also able to live their lives without prejudice or fear.


Getting competitive


All of our team members started their training completely from scratch, and we’re now getting ready to give it all we’ve got, to cross that finish line on Deansgate for a great cause!

Now it’s fair to say that we may have gotten a tiny bit competitive along the way. Maybe… just a little.


So, in the spirit of healthy competition we’ve put together…


The ultimate Ultimedia racing league table:



Finishing time

Jade Cosgrove


Phil Chapman


Paul Langan


Elizabeth James

The table will be updated once the run has been completed, so we’ll soon see who’s come out on top!


We also want to give a MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone for their donations so far, and if you’d like to sponsor the team and spur us on to the finish line, please donate whatever you can on our fundraising page.


Thank you.
