Woodbank Park, Turncroft Lane, Stockport. SK1 4JR


Seasons Used










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 purchased.

Post Race Meal


A post race meal will be provided at the track.
