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?)
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
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!
Now there's an idea Morticia......Brilliant! I can live with a little chafing....
You'll be ok Tigerjames. Do it.
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.
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]email@example.com]firstname.lastname@example.org
This race starts and finishes at Woodbank stadium and so I would therefore class it as undulating as opposed to hilly.
Entries are filling up fast and we are now over 700. It's being featured on Runners World next week as 'Race of the Week' so expect the the remaining places to fill up pretty quick.
Just a quick update on this. As Eric says we are now past 820 entrants for the race and it's looking like being another sell out. The entries will be kept open until the end of the week and then its very likely the Race Full signs will go up. So if you've not already done so get your entry in now. All details of how to enter can be found on the website: http://www.stockportharriers.com/index.php?q=club-races
Also if you cant run this we are short of marshals so if you can help please fmail me & I'll pass on your details.
And dont forget to look at the Video Teasers to give you some clues as to whats going to be in the Goody Bag.
Got my number today - I must have been a bit quick off the mark, as I got number 9! Really looking forward to this one now, just hoping the weather is ok for it.
