Felix for Manchester
MANCHESTER (GBR): Six-time Olympic champion Allyson Felix will compete at the Manchester Great CityGames on 18 May. She will run the 150m at which she set a world best 16.36 on the specially laid pop-up track in the city in 2013. The American will take on double world silver medallist Marie Josee Ta Lou, as well as Brits Cheriece Hylton and Bianca Williams.
RunBlogRun: Seriously, one of the tastiest races so far in the season. At this distance of 150 meters, Felix and Ta-Lou could be very even. The Great City Games Manchester is one of my favorites. I have been going for several years, having missed it in 2017, and now, again in 2018. A great venue for both, and the 20,000 plus fans on the course.
