Hatters Half Marathon 2022.

Sunday 4 September 2022 will see the Supporters Cooperative stage, for the seventh year, the Stockport Hatters Half Marathon, with the magnificent support of Stockport company RKL Engineering: http://www.rkl-engineering.co.uk/

 

Race Director John Giles sticks with the proven winning formulae that keeps this classic road/trail race towards the very top of UK race listings. The race starts at Edgeley Park before heading off via
Stockport roads to the Trans Pennine Trail where runners then follow the mighty River Mersey that beautiful raging force of nature that for centuries formed the boundary between the ancient kingdoms of Mercia and Northumbria and more latterly Lancashire and Cheshire, returning to the finish at the picturesque Alexandra Park.

 

Edgeley Park provides a pre-race base from where the race starts, at 9.30 am.

Winners last year were Nick Lee of Horwich RMI in 1.17.28 for the
men, and Rachel Rozhdestvenstaya in the Women`s race who clocked 1.29.26.

 

Entries are already flooding in for this popular event, and a great race is in prospect.

And finally, we are offering free race entry to anyone who will help us raise money for the Danny Bergara Statue Appeal by running the race as one of our `Danny`s Heroes`.

 

Last year Lydia Eames and Rick Ebbage ran the race and raised a
brilliant £665. This year DJ, TSBW front man and former Supporters Cooperative board member Nick Lee will run it as a `Danny Hero`- ifyou would like to join him on the start line and raise some money for a worthy cause please contact John Giles at the above email address.

 

Bergara Gin.

We are delighted to confirm that the third and final batch of the

fabulous `Bergara Gin` has sold out.

 

Our thanks and congratulations go to Cheryl and Paul at the

magnificent @Stockport Gin for this tremendous effort that has contributed significantly to the Danny Bergara Statue Appeal!

 

Big Kev Evening Aids the Statue Appeal.

 

The 1883 Suite at Edgeley Park was the scene of a fantastic evening with County great Kevin Francis featuring recently.

We are pleased to confirm that a total of £2011.50 was raised via our raffle and auction in support of the Danny Bergara Statue Appeal which has now topped £26000 !

 

Our thanks go to Kevin & all the County fans present whose support made this possible!

 

Keeping in Contact/ Raising important Questions.

 

With the Club obviously engaged fully with the teams progress in what remains of this vital season, time available for them to meet with ourselves has been unavoidably curtailed.

 

However, the club have agreed to receive and answer pressing
questions from the Supporters Cooperative if we submit same to them which we are in the process of doing now.

 

We will report further as soon as possible following the receipt of the Club`s reply.
