Entries are open for our 20-miler, three weeks before Windermere marathon and four before Edinburgh, and back in the North Staffs Road Runners Association calendar, for those to whom that last fact is relevant.
Online entry is available here, and via UKresults.net, and entry forms can be downloaded from the race home page - http://www.southcheshireharriers.org.uk/clubraces/20m/20m_main.php - where there are details of prizes, past results, map of the course etc.
Otherwise, I'm happy to answer any questions anyone has about the race, and direct you to the comments/feedback section for some very gratifying reviews of previous runnings.

Sorry Charlie, I hadn't realised that you had already started a thread!
Hi Kirsten - probably similar difficulty to Stafford. The main climb in ours is at about 9 miles: it is probably a stiffer gradient than Stafford, and it goes on a bit, but you don't have to do three laps of it. That isn't the only climb on the course either, though the others are nothing spectacular.
But I wouldn't want to kid on that it's any easier than Stafford.
Does anybody know any 20 milers in July/August in Lancashire/Cheshire
Doing Loch Ness marathon in September so want to do a 20 mile race as part of the training.
Hi folks, I don't know the total entries at the moment (there are two online entry systems plus postal entries, and they don't all come to me direct), but I do know they are down on the last couple of years, which I think may turn out to be because of the revived Manchester marathon on the same day. We can't avoid clashing with something, and you live and learn.
1.) There's still a month till the race, more or less, and it has started to pick up in the last few days;
2.) The race is in a local league calendar, and a lot of those who race will, I suspect, enter on the day (I know of quite a few from our own club who are planning to run but haven't entered yet); and most importantly
3.) No one would be made to feel to slow or too much trouble, even if they were the only runner out there! There'll be at least one 'sweep' runner to see in back markers, and in past years our marshals have sometimes run in with people to keep them company. Don't worry about your time.
Hope that's some reassurance - even if it sounds slightly like I'm trying to reassure myself
