Run It Back: A Recap of the Epic SUDU Shakeout Run

Run It Back: A Recap of the Epic SUDU Shakeout Run

Just days before the official SUDU launch, we hosted our first-ever Shakeout Run, bringing together the most dedicated runners from across Manchester. And with the buzz of the AJ Bell Great Manchester Run still fresh in the air, we knew there was no better way to introduce SUDU to the city than by doing what we love most – running! 

The SUDU Squad Takes Off 

On May 23rd, over 300 runners from Manchester descended on SUDU HQ. Bustled with excitement, the SUDU Squad donned the debut Run collection for the first time.

Our resident DJ set the mood with energetic vibes, amping up the crowd before SUDU Squad member Chris Millard led a dynamic warm-up session. 

Hitting the Streets, SUDU-Style 

With 300 runners strong and fueled with pre-run energy, we set off on a 5K shakeout run through the city streets. Three different pacers led the charge, catering to runners of all abilities with 5.30, 6 and 6.30-minute paces. 

As we moved through the city, we couldn't miss the SUDU billboards that had just taken over Manchester that very day. 

Victory Laps and Post-Run Fun 

After conquering the streets, we completed our victory laps back at SUDU HQ for a well-deserved post-run celebration. Cold beers (including non-alcoholic options) flowed freely as runners mingled, shared stories, met the SUDU Squad... there were even prize giveaways to add to the excitement! 

A Huge Thank You – and What's Next! 

We'd like to say thank you to everyone who showed up and embraced the spirit of SUDU, despite the rain! 

Your energy was contagious, and we can't wait for the next opportunity to connect with you all. Stay tuned on our social media channels – find us on TikTok and Instagram – to see when and where the SUDU Squad will be popping up next!
