Stockport Harriers’ Race Series - Race 1

- 17th Mar 2014

Stockport Harriers inaugural ‘Race Series’ got underway on the 9th March when 16 ‘registered’ runners participated in the Trafford 10k.

Although many were preparing for the Spring Marathon season, it was still an excellent turnout and we received some positive feedback from entrants regarding the organisation and course route.

Ross Millington was the first Stockport Harrier past the post in 2nd position overall with a time of 29:23, while James Corden was the first ‘Race Series’ runner to pick up 100 points with a time of 35:15.

‘Race Series’ points were awarded as follows:

100 - James Corden
99 - Pete Rogers
98 - Richard Marlton
97 - Robert Goulsbra
96 - Karl Tavini
95 - Mike Slater
94 - Jill Tavini
93 - David Mellor
92 - David Chrystie-Lowe
91 - Andy Melvin
90 - Samantha Thomas
89 - Sarah Aylmer
88 - John Hughes
87 - Liz Turton
