Get Your Money On - Updated 14/5/09

Lucy expected to leave the lads in her wake:

In The Great Manchester Run - 40 supporters face agony to secure FC ecstasy

The hot money on who will get round the course fastest is now on Lucy Pendlebury, expected to outlast the boys. £330 has been put on Lucy who has overtaken Rick Simpson.

This Sunday, May 17th will see 40 brave FC United entrants raising money for the club and our new stadium in the BUPA Great Manchester 10 Kilometre Run. And you have a chance to back them online below.

Rapidly closing in behind him on £228 is Darryl Latham, knocking back former third favourite, Martin Andersen. Martin still appears as a safe each way bet, declaring:" All money you donate will be covered by me - a money back guarantee - if I do not beat the time of Nicky Platt in the Run last year - 41mins: 40secs. The money would obviously still go to the cause and still appear as donated by you!" What better incentive for him to run fast than the threat of impoverishment? Nicky Platt is also running - to trip him up?

Masochism seems the order for the day for our lead runners, which you may think is why FC United photographer, Andy Barker is snapping at their heels.

Remember: Back them and you back FC
