Workout with pride…

A 10k run along a canal towpath and a game of water mini-polo are just two of the sports events that can be enjoyed at this year’s Manchester Pride festival.

The towpath run is organised by Manchester Frontrunners, the city’s LGBT running club, and starts at Sugden Sports Centre at 6.30pm on Thursday 27th August. The water mini-polo is organised by Manchester Sharks and takes place at Manchester Aquatics Centre at 2.30pm on Saturday 22nd August.

For those looking for something a little less strenuous, the Marlin Swimming Group will be hosting a special Pride Pool Party for transgender people at Levenshulme Swimming Baths on Monday 24th August.

In addition to these sports activities, Dietcare will be hosting Healthy Living and Exercise Talks in Taurus Bar on Canal Street and An Outlet on Dale Street during August.

Jackie Crozier, festival manager of Manchester Pride, said: “Sports activities are a great way to bring together members of the community from all backgrounds and from across a wide age group. I think we’ve got a nice mix of activities this year and I’m hoping we can do even more next year.”
