GBM - I'll see what I can do but Wednesdays are a problem for me as I have to get my son to cubs and back. 

For the un-educated amongst us

Rainow is not a team race, according to the web site anyway.

02/05/2013 at 12:10

Daz--I know things happen quickly in Hollywood but i can't believe they've already made a film of last nights Buxworth 5. Gerard Butler playing me is brilliant casting!   Sorry for trying to get others to Rainow. As BHB has just pointed out i don't even think there is a team prize at Rainow as it is only a small-ish race. 

 

BHB--Maybe we could focus on Shining Tor the following Weds as its a tougher race with a bigger attendance and all the other local clubs are usually well represented. If my plan to turn Stockport Harriers into the best fell running club in the country, if not the world, is to come to fruition then i think thats the race to start!   Nothing to stop you using Rainow as a dress rehearsal though.

Gerard the Butler, is he the old guy that plays in Batman?

TB - I was going to put a link to my work website to show I had passed an exam but then I changed my mind and thought that was twatty and everyone would think I was a saddo so I deleted it.

I HAVE PASSED AN EXAM THOUGH! WOOP WOOP WOOP.

03/05/2013 at 08:16

SW--Good for you! 

03/05/2013 at 09:26

Eleven plus?

03/05/2013 at 09:27

Or -good house-keeping? seriously, well done, I think your into accountancy of some description

03/05/2013 at 12:53

TB - yes work at an accountants doing trusts and estates mostly. Exam  was the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners Advanced Certificate in Will Preparation (England & Wales).

It was the first exam I have done since failing my mock A levels about 28 years ago so pleasantly surprised.

SW - well done!

TB - Gerard? it was Alfred wasn't it? I thought it was me that dropped a bollock!
03/05/2013 at 13:24

SW - Saddo!
(no, seriously, Well Done! )

PPP - I think you had the wrong op!

GBM - Shining Tor has been shortened to a lower-level 4M race (that doesn't even go to the summit of Shining Tor!)

As today is summer, might pop out for a few drinks later with Mrs Has Been.  Won't be straying too far from Town Bar/ Orangery or Liz so if you are in the Heaton Moor area you are welcome to join us.

Would have liked to do Shining Tor, but it is too close to Christleton. Might try to do Rainow instead as a taster and then the next team event, whichever that is.

03/05/2013 at 16:28

BHB. dont forget it's the Heatons beer festival. The Liz will be rammed tonight!

I wouldn't class 12 deg as Summer though, it's going to be a whopping 15 tomorrow!

 

03/05/2013 at 17:04

Well done Buxworthers.

I might have a look at a few of those fell races. Can't make Shining Tor but I'm considering Kettleshulme and Goyts Moss.

Good luck to Daz, RC and anyone else racing this weekend.

03/05/2013 at 17:04

I hadn't forgot, in fact I didn't even know.  I doubt it will make that much difference, they are all lager drinkers in there (and it is normally rammed anyway).

So this must be Summer's Eve then.  You must have heard the joke about the favourite two days of the year being Christmas Day and Summer?

03/05/2013 at 17:08
Good luck Daz and RC

NI - good luck in the marathon! I would love to do that one. I have happy memories of Richmond Park as a kid. Could it be the first Stockport Harrier Marathon victory since Mowgli's pomp? hope so.

BHB - you missed summer it was in Norfolk, 19' this morning, unfortunately 10' when I got home

03/05/2013 at 22:50

PPP-what's a bollock between friends

04/05/2013 at 11:30

It's the Mellor March on Sunday morning and as usual I'm going to do a quick lap of the 12 mile route starting at 8.00am so I can get back by 10.00am to start the walk about 10.30. All welcome for a social run - I know a few of you have been round in previous years and I recall some of you were even drinking beer at 10.00am in the Royal Oak
