In short: Great last run of the year In full: Very well organised. Parking well sign posted. Registration was easy with lots of friendly smiling faces. I ran with my son in the half mile pre-race and very enthusiastic support for all races. Liked the call out of runners names as everyone came in at the finish. Nice medal. The 5 mile run was a little hilly but very enjoyable run. Date of review: December 7, 2014
In short: Mud and hills In full: Felt much harder than last year, probably because of the deep shoe-sucking mud and bog. And the hills were just as tough. But the sun came out half-way through and it was positively balmy at the finish.
I was lucky enough to win my age category (M60)(first time ever!) due to a judicious sprint at the finish. Date of review: December 7, 2014

In short: Only need one word BRILLIANT In full: This was absolutely fabulous, a great new course, lots of lovely mud and some really challenging undulations. Great technical Tee-shirt as well. Same again next year please Date of review: December 7, 2014
In short: The Best Got Better In full: As ever, Stockport Harriers lay on the best organised, most friendly, race of the year.
Every year, this gets better, every year they listen to feedback and improve upon the past. Not sure I can suggest anything to improve upon this fantastic race, other than not increasing the numbers anymore. It is perfect as it is.
In short: A great race - as ever. In full: The Stockport 10 remains one of my favourite races of the year. Great organisation, brilliantly supportive marshals, and the one and only Tom Potson, aka Tony Audenshaw, providing the commentary.
No PB for me this year, but despite the rain and hail another brilliant running of the event. Date of review: December 7, 2014

In short: Great start to the festive season In full: Great organisation...the legend that is Tom Potson who had me in stitches before the start. Great baggage collection too. Date of review: December 7, 2014
In short: Well organised and very friendly In full: I've been thinking about doing this for several years and finally took the plunge this year. The race was excellent, very well organised and really friendly with a challenging and interesting course. The marshalls were fantastic and actively encouraged you using your name which was cleverly printed on your race bib. Really enjoyed it :) Date of review: December 7, 2014
In short: A good race with some steep hills. A good 10k workout. Greenwich park is a hill :p In full: I heard someone complaining that it Was listed as a flat race. Well we all make mistakes, but if you sign up for a race And it's harder than you think, surely it's more of an achievement when you finish!?!? Just remember without guys organising events, we are all stuck running the same old routes. Medal could be better , that said I've got worse. Date of review: December 7, 2014
In short: One day all clubs will be this well organised In full: makes you feel good in the build up to Christmas, well marshaled by all the usual suspects! very very friendly atmosphere and support from course marshals and a technical shirt and medal worth more than the low entry cost! and they still manage to support local charity (this year its our local hospice)well done everyone, runners and marshals and sponsors.

In short: Old school cross country on a wonderful muddy new course In full: Loved the new course and was much muddier and tougher than the old wasing estate one. Everyone seemed to have had a good time although some had to extract lost shoes from the mud. Just used two bowls if water in the back sink to clean my trailfox shoes as they were too muddy to bring in the house! Can the organisers can find more mud for next year?
