Please send results to firstname.lastname@example.org, preferably as a spreadsheet, they will then be posted on this site.
The results for today's Mynd Mac race are available here.
The date of the upcoming Shienton Steeplechase was incorrect in the calendar. It has now been corrected. The correct date is 7th May (so does not clash with the Wrekin Streak).
Results so far (after 5 out of 6 races completed) are available here.
This from Edward Andrews:
As members of local running clubs, I am emailing you details of a 5km Trail Race that I am organising in June. The route is hilly with fantastic scenery and this year we are pleased to be sponsored by Wenlock Spring Water and Hobsons Brewery!
I hope that you may be able to spread the word amongst the members of your clubs.
We held a successful event last year and are hoping that it will grow even more this year.
From Laurence Wilson:
I received this from thier RO:
By pure coincidence there was an aerial film crew on the Mynd while our race was going on. They have kindly allowed us to show it here.
It was made by Aerial-Imaging Specialists Limited.
Results for today's Cardingmill Canter race are here.
A larger than normal field of 114 took part and all came back safely, no incidents, no injuries. No records broken either, the going being a bit on the soggy side. The weather though was kind, it was sunny! Blimey! First home was Tim Werrett in 42:45, closely followed by Pete Vale in 43:02. First lady home was Mel Price in 48:46 and eighth overall.
Just a reminder that the Cardingmill Canter race this Saturday will be run under the new FRA rules as if it was a medium race. This means you will be required to carry full waterproof body cover, hat & gloves, map & compass and a whistle. If you haven't got the kit you will not be able to race. Please bring all the required kit.
