I understand that of 17:00 hours today, due to persistant trespassing by runners and walkers preparing for next weeks Longmynd Hike, permission to use private land between Welsh Lodge and the summit of Black Radley as part of route has been withdrawn, this means that the competitors will have to take the longer route following the tarmac road via Mynd and access the summit from the northern end. this is not just in practice, but in the event itself.
The finishers list and an event report are available at www.wistanstowwalk.blogspot.com. Well done to Andy Davies for annihilating the previous best time, doing it in 4h 1m despite losing time looking for a checkpoint that wasn't out yet!
A new local race has been added to the calendar, organised by Dave Farrow. See the Bury Ditches race information page.
Dave has invited the Church Stretton 'Tuesday' group give the route a try-out on Tuesday 7th September. The route starts and finishes at the pub, so that's a plus!
Steve Cale of Shrewsbury AC rounded off a superb series with a fine run at The Ragleth Inn Race, in very wet and slippery conditions, Steve managed to get within 3 seconds of Mark James' course record, to prove he was the rightful series champion, In the series he ended up 9 points head of Paul Jones of Oswestry and 13 points ahead of Ian Grindley, Both Paul and Ian had their rewards, by winning their respective age category group.
