List is up and I`m in!

How tough is it? I wanted to attack my PB at Preston this weekend but been really ill with flu so might have to refocus and race hard at Stockport. Is it PBable? How does it compare to Spire 10 or Caldervale?

Weyhey, I'm in too.

the egyptian, it's quite a hilly course so I would guess not a good one for a road PB. However I'm no judge (and certainly no speedster) because most of my events are off-road mountain / fell / trail, so this is easy in comparison for me. (Did I mention I'm not fast?)

Just entered this one. My  local race. Used to be a member of Stockport Harriers, but never done this race before. I'm dying to know what's in the goody bag!

Good to see our webmaster has got his act together.

Looking forward to the goody bag. Hoping for a gnome myself...

Are we all wearing tinsel??

Instead of running kit? Won't we get bad chafing? Maybe as race sweeps my friend and I should wear fancy dress? I will email the fancy dress shop in Stockport and see if they have a Viaduct costume.

I really need to get knitting my last finisher's prize. All I need is a genius idea. This week would have been a good time to have got it done as I have run 0 miles due to a chest infection

I just hope the snow doesn`t appear or it`ll be tough to get there from Sheff.

Video teaser no.9 was shot at the Woodbank parkrun this morning, should be out sometime this w/e.

Entries are picking up for this now and we just might sell out. Be warned!

Might give it a go....Looks hard for a newbie like me.....them hills look like a killer....Need to make up my mind fast

Tigerjames - hills aren't that bad  It's a great race and perfectly suitable for a newbie (and then there is also the goody bag )

Now there's an idea Morticia......Brilliant! I can live with a little chafing....

You'll be ok Tigerjames. Do it.

How hard / long and where are these hills? Still wondering whether to race hard or not.
25/11/2010 at 20:32

Its mostly flat / downhill until mile 5, where the first hill kicks in for about 3/4 mile, with a nasty sting in the tail as you turn into the estate. Miles 6 - 7 are rolling, then flat & downhill to mile 8 1/2 (apart from one 50 mtr climb) Its then up hill (varying degrees of steepness) until you get onto the path in the park then it flattens out to the finish.

You have to buckle down after turning onto the estate and then dig deep on the final hill.

are you sending the numbers out or do we pick them up on day
26/11/2010 at 10:05
Thanks Kwaka. Sounds like fun but a tough finish! Can`t be worse than Mansfield with about 3 miles uphill at the end on the hottest day of the year!
26/11/2010 at 15:55

I think the numbers are being posted out. I'm not the head honcho this year just helping out. Drop an email to /forum/smilies/confused_smiley.gif[/img]]
