Best race of the year
And of we go again.
I understand there is a new route? anyone know why or what it is.
If anyone gets chance to take a look at the funny promo video its here
A running club with a sense of humour
keep up the good work Stockport
It fills up pretty quick as well
I like the video - another good one from Stockport and 'Mr Potson'. No mention of the goody bag this year though. How strange.
I'm looking forward to trying out the new route, which sounds like a big improvement.
I'm already in but that video is really funny. If you pause the video when it flashes up on the map, you should be able to see the route.
Just to warn people that the race is almost full
Anyone got a link to the new route? i know they show it in the promo vid but it would be nice to have a proper look
Looking at the video and pausing it at 1:30 shows the route, but I can't any change from last year
1,100 places taken up so only 150 left. Expect online entries to be stopped by Friday 18th October.
I did a 10k in Stockport in the mid-80s, the last year I did any running. I started again this March so have decided I have to do this one.
I reckon I'll end up near the back of the field but never mind - sure it will be an enjoyable run.
**Race Full** Best of luck to all you lucky people who've got a place! Happy training.
Race full nearly two months in advance. Impressive indeed and a reflection of the hard work that goes into making it so popular.
Already practising reps up New Zealand Road.
Eric whats this rumour of a new route about? You've not made this flat or something have you?
Cake - no flat route, that would be boring, wouldn't it?! The route is on the Harriers website although there is one slight error in this - instead of running straight into Woodbank Park just after 9 miles (at the new car park) you loop quickly into Vernon park to the tea rooms/museum, round the hedges and into Woodbank Park via the reverse Park run route and so making the dangerous car park redundant. The big Overdale hill has been taken out - you still have to get to the top but we've made it longer and so more gradual. The horrible Harrytown bit on the main road has gone and instead you have a beautiful run down to the Goyt Valley and out at Bredbury Hall where we will this year have our second water station!
Excellent although I quite liked the Harrytown bit in a way I hill's See you there mate I'll be the fat bloke.
Is ther a waiting list? I know I have missed getting a place but just on the off chance?
Unfortunately the waiting list is extremely large so we're not taking anymore - sorry!
Looks like I'll be unable to run. Are you the man to contact to make sure my place doesn't go to waste and somebody else can run?
I've developed an issue with my neck/shoulder and am unable to lift my right arm. If I can be fixed as quickly as the problem developed then I'll run but doubt that will happen.
I'm gutted as this is my first year running for a long, long time. Prior to this year my only official race was with Stockport Harriers doing a 10k in the mid-80s. I also wanted the quality goody bag and tech top.
Ed, sorry to hear that. You have a couple of choices here: 1. defer your entry until next year. 2. turn up on the day, collect your number and this will then also entitle you to collect your goody bag with t-shirt! To defer contact Alan Dilkes - firstname.lastname@example.org - details on the Harriers website if this link doesn't work properly.
