New course in 2014 - nice running and good post race meal! Three lap course
in park suitable for spikes.
This is a three lap course with each lap just under
two miles in length. The race starts adjacent to the athletics
track (HQ of Stockport Harriers) and initially follows a flat
section through the park before a long medium decent. The decent
takes runners to a large field where the course follows a couple of
technical turns before the start of a long gradual climb which ends
with a short but very steep section. The remainder of the lap is
flat and follows a muddy section of path back to the start.
Changing and showers available at track where drinks can be
