Stockport 10 mile 2017 Race Report

After a very cold week things warmed up for the final race in the Club Road Race Championship at the Stockport 10 mile race. This challenging race starts and finishes at the Woodbank track and goes down to the Goyt river, up to a housing estate overlooking the river, back down to the Goyt river and then finally back up to Woodbank Park.
