Hi Mandie! Hound and boy stayed at home in the warm (tis a dangerous thing, this man-flu )

Had a look at the results - turns out I was just behind you, came in 8 places later

Blimey Frodo - so close, yet so far and all that!!  Hopefully see you at next years race, if not before eh?

All was going well, and I was on track for about 2 to 3 minutes below my pre-race target, just picking up the pace a bit at about 7.5 miles when - wham! I found a piece of ice I hadn't spotted and I was flat out on the ground.  So now I've a grazed knee, grazed hands, bruised ribs and a grazed torso.  That really took the wind out of my sails for what was, until that moment, a very enjoyable race.  Many thanks to the nurse who stopped her car and checked I was OK.  Thanks too to other runners who did the same.  I did manage to complete the course, but running was quite painful, so missed my target..  As ever, thanks to Stockport Harriers for a great race with really encouraging marshalls.  Oh well, roll on next year!

Really enjoyed the Stockpot 10 again - great organisation and support from fantastic marshalls

Don't forget to investigate the contents of your goody bag by searching for the 'stockport ten' videos on or

Wonderful race as usual.  Can anyone provide a brief outline of the route as Mrs John keeps asking me and I keep forgetting to concentrate when I run it ?

Well, you start off at Woodbank Stadium, then you leave there and head straight up. Or at least it felt that way

I recorded the route on my phone, if you want a look at a map you can see it  here

Hope your feeling OK, NRAR.

I believe we might be one of the feature races in RW next month. Look out for the pictures.

Hia, is there any way of correcting your finishing times ?  Mine are around 20 seconds quicker than on the provisional results.

Great race, very well organised, disappointed about the goody bag though, there was nothing in it, and the long sleeve shirts  never fit me as I'm tall (short sleeved t-shirts please). Marshalls were very friendly though. Overall, a really good race, and I will be doing it again.

My finishing time is a minute slower than it was on the clock and had me a almost a minute behind the finisher who was a second ahead of me ??????

I enjoyed it too. Felt like a fartlek at times going really slow on icy bits then pushing on when you got a clear piece of road. Really dull course save the park and the little stretch down that lane but the enthusiasm of the club make it a fun race. Anyone know what the tempearture was when we started?
13/12/2010 at 12:48

It was well below freezing I'd put it at -2 or -3. It was -7 when we we're setting up.

Re-results, drop an email to the results man, he can either put it right there & then or he'll get onto the Race Director to double check the checkers sheets.

Thought it must have been something like that! I did 4 laps before I felt warm. Where will the photos be?
13/12/2010 at 22:11

Glad everyone enjoyed it.  The photos are staring to come in now from the various people who were taking them.  They should be on the Harriers' website in the next few days.

We may go for chip timing next year.
