Remembering Gill Harris

In Memory of Gill Harris

Friends of Gill Harris, many of them members of Mercia Fell Runners thought it appropriate to remember her in a permanent, and fitting way following her sad and untimely death last year, marking in particular her achievements in the Long Mynd Hike, The National Trust were approached and agreed to the replacement one of the existing waymarker posts that already existed on The Long Mynd with a new finger post, The new finger post has been erected at High Park on the route of both, The Stretton Skyline, and The Long Mynd Hike in time for this years events, we hope the post will act as a reminder

Steve Cale, Ian Grindle and Jon Bowie will all start the race with an equal chance of winning this years' series, Steve Cale looks to be in the driving seat with 592 point already in the bag from his four races, with Ian Grindle just one point behind, but if either Ian or Jon beat Steve and finish in third position or better, then they could overall Steve's point total.

Remembering Doug Morris

There will be an unveiling of the "Remembering Doug Morris" bench in LLanwddyn, just close to where the Lake Vyrnwy half marathon starts. It will take place on Saturday, 29th August at 11.30am. It will be an informal affair althouh I have no doubt that a few words will be said and if anyone would like to attend (or even say something) they would be most welcome. We look forward to seeing you there.

Thanks and regards,
Colin Williamson and Margaret Morris
