There is an informal social run on a Tuesday night from Church Stretton (Little Stretton first Tuesday of the month) - info HERE.
We have our own mini-Paddy Buckley (takes 3-6 hours)! For info on the Gill Harris Long Mynd Tops Challenge Click Here. The records were updated 20/01/2013, click here to see details of completed rounds.
Please send results to email@example.com, preferably as a spreadsheet, they will then be posted on this site.
When filling an entry form for a race can you make sure your name is written very clearly in exactly the same way for every race (e.g. always Andy and not sometimes Andrew). Mistakes hard to correct afterwards as the results information is published in many places (often within hours of the race finishing).
