Tues 15th July 2008, 7.30pm start
Just giving the East Cheshire Harriers Black Knight Charge a plug. It is staged through Daisy Nook Country Park at Ashton Under Lyne. It is 6 mile offroad and consists mainly of track and trail, the start and finish is along the canal banking. It is a very demanding course with several short climbs,two years ago the weather was blazing hot, last year the course was like a mud bath and the river crossing had to be closed for safety reasons.
Registration is at ECH headquarters on Richmond st and the start is about a 15min jog so get there early, if you check out the club web site there is an entry form or enter on the night. www.eastcheshireharriers.co.uk .
Most important thing is the bar will be open after the race and there will be potatoe pie served what more do you need.
see you on the start line
I have just been around the course, it is wet after all the rain we have had so off road shoes or fell would be advised.
I agree and what a good turnout over a hundred runners and the weather was great. I forgot how tough some of the climbs in the woods can be. Anyway thanks to all that made it a great night particularly the marshalls and backroom staff. see you next year.
