You can run your 10 mile Virtual Stockport 10 on our designated route or on any 10 mile route of your choice anywhere in the world. Races run on treadmills are not permitted, but you can complete your race on a 400m track as long as you run 40 and a quarter laps. When you submit your result, you will be given the choice of submitting a time for either the official route or one of your choosing. You can run your race any time from Sat 5 December up to Sun 13 December. You may run with up to 5 other runners as long as the social distancing and/or PPE requirements in place at the time are observed.
Here is a link to the Designated VSTK10 route including a written description.
You can enter up to, and including, the 5th of December.
In common with the vast majority of races we do not offer refunds or deferrals.
We appreciate that some runners will get injured in the build up to the race so we allow numbers to be transferred up to and including 5th December. Requests received after this date will not be permitted. To transfer please get in touch with us using the contact form
The course is run on tarmac and pavement and so road shoes are recommended.
You must be 18yrs old on the day you race. A runner turning 18 during the period 5-13 December may enter but should not complete the route prior to their 18th birthday.
A custom-designed finishers medal (posted to you approx. 4 weeks after 13 December)
Prizes for the first 3 M& F finishers completing the designated route as well as AG prizes (in 10 year age groups) for the M& F AG winners completing the designated route, i.e. 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+

As the race may be run any time over a 9-day period, there are no changing rooms or toilets available in Woodbank Park
Please remember that the route is not traffic free and there are no marshals. Whether you complete the designated route or one of your own choice, you are permitted to stop your recording device long enough to wait for traffic to clear and submit your moving time. Anyone who in the view of the organiser has abused this rule on the Designated Route may be asked to provide a link to their recorded run for review.
For those running either the designated route or another route on public highways may wear a bone-conducting headphone such as those made by After Shokz since there are no marshals to give instructions. However wearing any type of headphone on routes following public highways is NOT recommended and are worn solely at the risk of the runner.
As with all runners, you will need to determine whether the conditions on the day are suitable for you, but we welcome VI runners and you identify yourself as such, will give a free entry to your qualified Guide Runner, whether you are using the Designated Route or one of your own choice.
All the net proceeds from the Virtual STK10 Race will be shared between NHS Charities and the Stockport Foodbank
