In short: Great atmosphere In full: Liked the track start, especially with Benny Hill music playing. I knew I'd be bringing up the rear and I did, but it didn't matter. Still got a great welcome back into the stadium at the end. Great support and encouragement from organisers and other runners thoughout. Really enjoyed it.
Hills were tough, but the last one was made better by faster runners, who were already driving home, shouting encouragement from their cars. Didn't enjoy the stretch of running up a hill on a busy road. Crossed onto the pavement in the end ignoring the sign for runners to keep left. Date of review: December 19, 2012
In short: Superb organisation, Fabulous design tech top. In full: If you want an easy 10 miler then look away. This is a test of endurance and strength, Marshalls are legendary as is the goody bag and quality running top that you can actually wear running. Date of review: December 14, 2012
In short: awesome race, really friendly and a fab goody bag In full: what more can i say..if carlsberg made races! challenging course but the downhills make up for the uphills. Fantastic marshalls and great organisation. The goody bag will never fail to make you smile and a great tech t-shirt. What more could you want. Date of review: December 13, 2012
In short: Great atmosphere & challenging run. In full: This is a great club race, the marshalls & fellow runners are friendley & encouraging. It is a challenging course, the hills are legendery :-) this was the third time I have done this race and will definately do it again, although may have a try at marshalling next year to give something back.

In short: Rubbish but brilliant? Just brilliant I'd say! In full: Excellent race, well organised, well marshalled and quite challenging at times! Some nice scenery interspersed with some housing estates! All in all a cracking run, definitely back next year!!!
In short: Yet another superb race from Stockport Harriers. Enthusiastic support from the marshalls. Having your name on the race number really helped In full: Great Goody bag. Enjoy this race year after year. Superb commentary from Tony Audenshaw and a unique selection of music to start us off (Benny Hill Themme). Date of review: December 12, 2012
In short: Favourite race of the year! In full: By far the best race of the year. Stockport Harriers go a long way to make the race as enjoyable as possible, very well organised, excellent goody bag and very enthusiastic marshalls. The fact that the race is always full, (with a waiting list) some time in advance goes to show how popular the race is. Date of review: December 12, 2012
