Think all is quiet in the world of Stockport County?

Think again! Aside from the small matter of the club appointing a new manager, there are those working away for the benefit of our club.

The Stockport County Supporters Co-operative have been beavering away and have announced the Hatters Half Marathon!

A great initiative, that not only promotes Stockport County Football Club within the local area but also raises the profile of the borough nationally!

Entries for the Hatters Half Marathon, promoted by Stockport County Supporters Cooperative, and sponsored by Stockport`s own Robinson`s Brewery,Sweat Shop and our media partner Pure 107.8, had only been open for a matter of minutes when the first runners signed up via the Run Britain link

A Mr & Mrs Taylor, from Plymouth registered and paid to participate in the half marathon, which the Supporters Cooperative is proud to run in support of Stockport homeless charity the Wellspring.

Mrs Taylor was very complementary about the cost of entering the race, which she said compared very favourably with the price paid to run races elsewhere, and the couple are already looking for hotel accommodation in Stockport for the weekend of the race!

Take note local businesses and Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council – County are still alive and kicking and can bring wider benefits to the community!

So….. interested?

Want to join Mr & Mrs Taylor on the start line, in the shadow of Edgeley Park?

Then, get your diaries out and note the time and date…….

Sunday 6 September 2015 starting at 09.30 a.m.

…..then visit the race website for further details, and utilise the link to the Run Britain Race Entries site to enter !

And…..if you do not want to run but can help us with the race organisation on the day, by marshalling or doing something similar, then please contact Race Director John Giles on, your help would be massively welcome!

Come and be part of the first Hatters Half Marathon and help us strive to make it the best!

Stockport County Supporters Cooperative.
