IMPORTANT EVENT UPDATES
In common with other UK Athletics Clubs and Race Organisers, Stockport Harriers & AC have carefully considered the feasibility of conducting our annual races in view of the social distancing requirements resulting from the Covid-19 global pandemic. Planning for large events like these takes place months before the race date. Stockport Harriers & AC already announced the cancellation of our summer event, the Offerton 5 Multi-Terrain Race, back in early April. While we do not know what the position of the government and UK Athletics will be on organised running events later in 2020, we believe that even if such events can be held, the size of the field will be limited and social-distancing requirements too onerous to enable a safe and enjoyable event to be held this year. Consequently, we have made the decision to cancel the Stockport 10 (‘STK10′) planned for Sunday, 13 December 2020 and to hold the next STK10 on Sunday 12 December 2021.
Because the STK10 is a long-standing, iconic event that has a place in the hearts of many North West runners, we are planning to organise a Virtual STK10 Race, which will be held in early December 2020 and for which the net proceeds will go to charity. It will be both affordable and have elements to make it an attractive event that many of our regular STK10 runners will want to enter. We expect to announce the details and open registration in late June/early July.
