RACE ORGANISERS

Please send results to results@merciafellrunners.org.uk, preferably as a spreadsheet, they will then be posted on this site.

SERIES RACE COMPETITORS

When filling an entry form for a race make sure your name is written very clearly and exactly the same for every race (e.g. always Andy and not sometimes Andrew). Mistakes are hard to correct as the results are published in many places (usually shortly after the race).

Hell o'the Mynd - This Saturday, 28th October 2017

Joining instructions for Hell o'the Mynd are at the pdf linked below.

There will be a few entries on the day for single laps 21km/2200m with starts at 10am and 2:30pm (£15). Read the joining instructions file below if you want to take this option, and let me know if possible so I can print enough maps and sets of instructions.

Please note: Hell o'the Mynd is staged by Zoe and me (Jim Tinnion) and is not a Mercia race - thanks to Mercia for the loan of some equipment and for hosting the instructions on the website...

Mercia are V50 Relays Champions
