I am going over to Northern Ireland to be part of the Championship Weekend on 9th April, not sure if I can race or not depending on my injured foot, but I am sure I will have a good couple of days in the Mourne Mountains. I am wondering if any other Mercia team mates are going over too, so that I can share car hire and accommodation costs. Travelling on Friday evening from Birmingham and returning Sunday evening. Please call me to arrange 07970 431924. Matthew Clewes
Hopefully I have them somewhere near right, but you the runners are the best people to check them, so please report any errors or omissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm not sure which was the worst, marking the course out, or racing it, the weather conditions where certainly a challenge with very strong winds, especially on the second half of the course, it was one of those days you have to respect, the people who marshall our events, certainly did not have the soft option. For the runners, it must be one of the hardest SHORT race on the circuit, so well done everyone, it was a delight to see so many runners from away trying out our hills, please come back again, our hills may not be big, but they pack a fair punch.
