Passing the new London 2012 Velodrome, Aquatics Centre and Basketball Arena en route to the Olympic Stadium finish line, Mick completed the five-mile course in only 37 minutes – quicker than celebrity runners Princess Beatrice and Olympic gold-medallist Sally Gunnell.
Mick then set his sights on running the Greater Manchester Marathon on 29th April and the Bupa Great Manchester Run on 20th May. He successfully ran the 26 miles and 385 yards through the streets of Manchester in 3 hours 47 minutes – helping to raise money for MacMillan Cancer Support – before taking on the shorter 10K run.
“The weather was appalling throughout the Greater Manchester Marathon and made conditions difficult,” said Mick, “but I got a great deal of satisfaction when I crossed the finish line in Trafford.”
