South Shropshire Circular

Lead group (including several Mercians) on the traverse to SC3

Well, it's been and gone, and Mercia runners had a great day at the South Shropshire Circular again this year. The 25 mile / 3,600' course started from Cleobury North and took in a lovely traverse around the north end of Brown Clee and then up to the summit, then a further traverse under Abdon Burf down to the main road. Crossing this, we headed up Titterstone Clee (there was a faster going around the hill option, but no-one from Mercia did that, did they?).
