Nervous now due to severe lack of training. Been working away too much :-[

take it steady  as quite a few hills in it

Will be VERY steady! Can't be worse than the spire 10 can it?

I'm having to defer 2nd year in a row - mother has gone and broke her leg and I have to go look after her. I wonder if I'll ever get to do this race!

05/12/2012 at 14:50

Oh well... have a good race everyone.

I love the idea of hugging a marshal on the way round - especially as I'm one of them!  It was so cold and wet last year I could have done with a hug to warm me up.  Don't worry Jane, we'll all still be shouting and encouraging to the very last minute, and probably for some time well beyond that!  Good luck everyone, and don't forget there are some downhill bits as well....

I'll be at the back Cake, may as well collect all the marker up on my way past....

15 W, sorry to hear about your mum. hope she gets better soon.  You'll be able to sell/transfer your number, there's a big waiting list.  Go on to the Stockport Harriers Website or go on their site on facebook

Cake and DeliH - see you back there. I'm aiming to slide in under 2 hours, but that's probably a little optimistic. I'm struggling with a cold, and coming back from injury myself.

Auntie Ninja, I'll look out for you. Thanks for the encouragement.

I'm hoping it's not snowy, or I might be slower downhill than up!

Sorry to hear about your mum 15 West, I broke my ankle in the spring and am only just building the milage up (work has been getting in the way too). Hope she makes a speedy recovery.

I will probably be wearing a purple long sleeved top and at the back Jane if you want a running chum!

I'll be on the corner of Bents Lane and Vernon Road, just as you do a sharp left turn.  Can't promise I'll be wearing a carnation or carrying a rolled up newspaper but I'll probably be the one in a dayglo vest shouting a lot...

07/12/2012 at 20:36

IN! Just got an entry off someone that can't take part....

Jane, don't worry about being slow....I was nearly last in 2010, & it's a dead friendly club & won't forget you!

I'll wait & cheer you in.

Pyjama Girl   it should be  a good race  if no ice any where

08/12/2012 at 04:13

*Waves* at Tinkerbell....There will be no ice!

08/12/2012 at 15:19

good   no ice here today   

08/12/2012 at 18:43

The goody bags were packed today to the strains of the "Benny Hill" music - everything about this race is fun!  Good luck everyone!

Love it love it love it.

Best race ever in terms of comedy value! Absolutely what running is about and topped off a cracking year for me racing wise. Well done to every single person at Stockport Harriers, Tony(?) the MC was brilliant - course was bit hilly loike second half but I like hills so all good. I'll be back next year and out of a hell of a load of races this year, this stands out to me as a bloody good 'un. Finished in 1:18:14, happy enough with that.

Loved starting off to the benny hill song..... stuck in my head all day now!

Had a great time. Thanks to the marshalls and organisers, and especially to the 2 sweepers who were behind me most of the way - making me feel I wasn't going to get left behind without ever rushing me.

Also big thanks to Pyjama girl for staying until the end to make sure I made it through.

Fairly happt with 2:08 on the back of injury and illness - will aim for under 2 hrs next year.

What was the worm in the goody bag about though?
