  • Honestly got no idea what I'm going to do with any of the contents of the bag, but I'm still really looking forward to this - looks like the weather should be ok too, a bit of fog notwithstanding.
  • The fact that the, fantastic tech shirt not withstanding,, the goody bag contains mostly useless crap is what makes it so brilliant and world famous.  How can you not love a goodybag that contains a screw and a Penguin bar ?  Classic
  • Yeah, I knew it was likely to be a lot of bonkers stuff in there. Was hoping for some rawl plugs though image

  • I'll be packing in the morning,  so look out for a handful of rawl plugs

    We aim to pleaseimage

    Yes we've still got some left over from last year.

    For information on parking & how to get there, etc read the race pack on the website. Lots of useful info. http://www.stockportharriers.com/index.php?q=club-races

  • Is Woodbank Park signposted? Really looking forward to it. Seems ages since my last race but it`s only 3 weeks, i think! image
  • Just driven round most of the course and ice appears to have gone.

    That`s good to know! My first race as a vet. image
  • Race Number 97 checking in
  • On the M6 heading from Wigan, thermometer is flashing -2 C, sub- tropical! No. 805 and looking for a PB today on this course. Good luck all!
  • id like to thank the organisers for this fantastic race.

    A good undulating course, well marshaled and a bargain entry fee. (the technical tshirt is worth the entry fee alone!)


    Can any tell me the who guy was running with the rucksack?




  • Had a whale of a time, thanks for organising such an ace event image

    And a special thanks to the pirate lady who "raced" with me all the way around to our sprint (ha!) finish image
  • What a superb race! Probably the best marshalls I've ever seen. Don't mind a few hills (although some of the downhill bits were a bit fierce!)

    Got a PB (but I've never done a 10 miler before, so all I had to was finish for that), 4 minutes faster than my target time which isn't too shabby. Even managed a half-decent sprint finish, then forgot to stop my watch. Doh!

  • Thanks enjoyable race Hope the fella who was running alongside who slipped on the kerb at 8 miles and pulled up is OK
  • PS The hound also says thank you for the dog biscuit in the goody bag image
  • What an excellent run out. Thank you Stockport Harriers and particularly all your marshals for standing out there on such a chilly morning. Crackin' good shirt for the effort as well. Made my PB so well stoked.
  • Dog biscuit???? I thought it tasted a bit funny but I was that hungry I finished it off!!! image Hi Frodo - sorry I didn't get to say hi. I looked out for your dog but didn't see her. Hope Mr Frodo is feeling better.

    Another great race - thanks to everyone involved. Those hills just dont get any easier do they?

  • Results are here.

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

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

    Cheers NI.
  • 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 
  • I'm sure you'll all agree a fantastic mornings running - with some great results and so many smiling faces at the finish line.

  • Compo great result !
  • 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 ? 

    Thanks

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

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