Stockport 10



  • First time for me but I'm in
  • compo 1compo 1 ✭✭✭
    just entered via uk results looking forward to the steep hill bit
  • I'm in, through Run Britain (no fee). Did it for first time last year, great run., hope the weather is as good.

  • Hello everyone - I'm in too image

    I'm a bit of a novice at the distance: popped along to the Sale 10 this summer on a bit of a whim as I had 10miles on the training plan for that day image and quite enjoyed it.

  • No Norty I'm not running at all these days.

    New motorbike and new girlfriend. I seem to be otherwise occupied. image

  • Still wondering whether I'm fit enough to do it this year.  Is it getting full, or have I still got some more time before I need to commit myself?
  • Musty- Pleeeeeeeeeease don't start regaling us with tales of your sex life!  image  

    NotReallyARunner- I am sure you will be fine- and it is in my best interests to encourage non-speedy types as then it makes my race sweep job easier! I am 'sweeping' with my mate Diane who is visually impaired, and she is not used to hills, so you could look after the pair of us when we struggle to keep up with you image

    On a more useful note I don't think it is full, no.

  • Not full yet - but filling very fast !

    Dont forget to watch the videos of the goody bag items on youtube

    Just search for 'stockport ten'
  • I like the 'gnome' one best  image
  • Well, I've signed up now, so the knitted snail could be mine.image

    Or will it be a knitted viaduct?  image

  • When do the  numbers get sent out?

    I think its a couple of weeks before. Theres an entry list on the Harriers website.

  • I entered a while ago but still not on that list. image
  • Is that list in the number order? I like the idea of being #7!
  • Just wondering what will be in the goody of tooth-picks...........?? image image image
  • No, those are far too useful image
  • Not on the list and entered some time ago
  • The mealworms were very useful Sprouty. Robins just love them.....image I can remember a girl opening her goody bag & screaming loudly "there are maggots in my goody bag"..... image
  • I live in a flat in the city centre, so don't get too many robins... actually I may throw them at people who think it's funny to ring my doorbell at 3am on a Monday night.
  • I quite fancy this race - what's it like? 
  • It's good Adele. Couple of hills. Nothing too awful. Starts in a park & goes for a gander round the houses. Good atmosphere. Tech t-shirt last year plus goody bag.
  • Mmm sounds like a plan image

    Think I will enter in the morning.

  • My entry's in the post. This is a great event and the weather's always kind.

    I've just watched this year's goody bag videos so far (up to 7 of 10). They tease us mercilessly. My guess on the sandwich sketch is a sachet of mayonnaise. Who's betting on mustard?

    As for the binoculars looking at the trees, a dollop of bird plop in or on something? And what about the walk across the fields with the dog, the shoes and the stench? I see a theme developing and it's not nice. image

    Frodo, fancy seeing you here. Snowdonia and now Stockport 10. We get around. image

  • BritNick- I know what they are!!!!! But I have insider information image Actually I have no idea what the gnome one might be about........?

    Adele- I don't think I have read any bad reviews of this race and so yes you should definitely enter. image

    image Hiya!

    I'm still part-benched, but should be fine by the time this rolls round. I'm loitering on the Lakeland 50/100 thread too as I'm thinking of making the ultra leap this year. I hear you're a bit of an expert in the field... image

  • morticia, wasn't the little fella a Diddy Man of Ken Dodd origin? I'm sure the voice was a speeded up Ken Dodd and it looked a bit like him. I don't know what the sawing was all about though.

    Yeah Frodo, I've done a bit over the years. The L50 is a toughie, even though it's 'only' 50 miles. It demands great respect. Get plenty of long weekends out in the hills to build up the leg strength. I recommend plenty of LDWA events, say 3 - 4 a month.

  • BritNick - Later, you will see my acting debut with Doug the dog my Border Terrier, didn't see you after the BS, another goodturnout from the Harriers, did New York last weekend, tough course but managed to sneak under 3 hrs again.

    the egyption - email the registration guy Alan at the /forum/smilies/confused_smiley.gif[/img]] address, to check on your entry. I've got a feeling the entry list needs an update as he told me there were over 500 entries at last count.
