Staff members from Manchester-based sportswear brand Prevayl have taken on a massive 50km run around the city.
The impressive feat saw employees run a route between 16 billboards that had been erected around town, finishing up at the country’s largest billboard at Victoria Warehouse.
Their progress and stats were all tracked by their own clothing too, thanks to Prevayl’s revolutionary blend of wearable tech and premium sportswear.
The group of runners was made up of staff from departments including hardware, marketing, finance, HR and design, as well as the company’s CEO Adam Crofts.
All of them wore products from Prevayl’s collection for the run on 10 March, including items from its official SmartWear and Performance Wear launch.
Runners were able to sync the data from their smart sports bras, t-shirts and tank tops to the Prevayl App, which acts as a personal fitness data hub, tracking stats like their heart rate, calories burned, body temperature, pace and distance.
Through this, the team were able to see how different their data was from each other’s, including how each team member ended up in different training zones.
The collection is already loved by big names such as athletics and cycling Paralympian Kadeena Cox, West Ham and England footballer Declan Rice, and Sky Sports presenter Josh Denzel.
Although the team have been testing prototypes and countless test samples to get to the launch, this was the first time the team collectively sported the apparel as a group and took to the streets in Prevayl’s home city of Manchester.
A friendly reminder that there’s a takeaway called Jack Grillish in Swinton
As were swept up in World Cup fever, football seems to be slowly consuming every other aspect of our everyday life, including food. Then we remembered there’s a takeaway called Jack Grillish.
lf you’ve never heard of the pun-based fast-food joint over in Swinton, Salford, Jack Grillish is the late-night grill and cult-favourite takeaway named after the man himself.
Despite only joining Manchester City back in August of 2021, it didn’t take long at all for Grealish to get his own takeaway named after him, as the Chorley Road spot formerly known as Food Station changed its name not long after.
Most football legends have to wait their entire career to have a foodstuff named after them, let alone an entire building. In fact, we went there a couple of months back to see it ourselves.
Jack Grillish‘s menu is exactly the kind of thing you’d expect to see at any no-nonsense takeaway in Greater Manchester: big burgers, lots of lovely chicken and plenty of naughty desserts.
Specialising in large trays of baked chicken, cheese and chips, it might not be the kind of thing the man himself can eat whilst away at England camp, but it’d certainly make for a banging tea for anyone watching the France game at home this Saturday.
Put another way, we’re hoping that by ordering from the gaff before the game, we’ll send a message out into the universe and not only will ‘Super Jack’ score but we breeze into the next stage of Qatar 2022.
If you also happen to be a bit superstitious, you can order from Jack Grillish HERE.

Police appeal for information regarding ‘serious assault’ around Old Trafford before United game in October
Greater Manchester Police (GMP) are appealing for fresh information on a “serious assault” committed around the Old Trafford area earlier this year.
GMP issued a press release on Friday, 9 December, asking for members of the public to come forward and share any details they might have on the attack carried along Seymour Grove in Trafford around 1:30pm on 16 October 2022.
They go on to explain that “a man in his 20s was assaulted by a group of unknown males” on the way to the game at Old Trafford, adding that “it is believed that the suspects were also attending the Manchester United vs Newcastle United match.”
It remains unclear whether or not the assailants were travelling fans in town to support the away side but GMP are looking to speak to the men pictured as they may be able to help with enquiries.
As detailed in the statement, “the victim suffered a severely broken jaw, a broken nose, numerous cuts to the face, and damage to the nerves of four teeth which he is likely to need further medical treatment for.” Terrible stuff.
The authorities are continuing to investigate the Seymour Grove assault after having followed up on a number of lines of enquiry since the incident took place and are now asking for the public’s help.
Anyone with information, or anyone who may have footage/images, or can identify the men in the photos, can contact Greater Manchester Police on 101, quoting log number 1589 on 16/10/22; or, alternatively use the Live Chat service HERE.
Alternatively, information can be shared anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
