The MPIB Run is a well-run 8km and 12km event, on a very hilly course, which in 2013 gave out some great prizes including New Balance vouchers, Sworke sunglasses, cases of isotonic drinks and very shiny trophies. Trophies and New Balance vouchers will once again be awarded to next year’s Top-10 finishers in each category.
The countdown – only 79 days! – has already begun for the 2014 event on January 5 and the organisers are providing Saturday morning running clinics aimed specifically at people who are new to running. Here’s the info:
