TRAINING

Training groups meet on the Longmynd and on the Wrekin on Thursday nights. The Longmynd group venue is posted here each week; the Wrekin group meets at the gate at the bottom of the main path at Forest Glen at 19:15. There is an informal social run on a Tuesday night from Church / Little Stretton - info HERE.

GILL HARRIS ROUND

We have our own mini-Paddy Buckley (takes 3-6 hours)! For info on the Gill Harris Long Mynd Tops Challenge Click Here. The records were updated 20/01/2013, click here to see details of completed rounds.

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).

Winter Series 2017/18 Races

SHROPS HILLS FELL RACE 17-18 WINTER SERIES A4 COLOUR.jpg

Details of the 2017/18 winter series have now been finalised. See attached brochure and series races.

Chernobyl Aid (UK) Hills and Dales Walks

A challenge walk/run event is being run on 26th August in the Peak District (nr Dove valley) in aid of the Chernobyl Aid UK charity. There are 8, 14 and 26 mile routes for walkers and runners. Some details attached and more at www.andycrafts.co.uk and www.nabendfarm.co.uk.

Mynd Drover 2017 Finishers List

The finishers list for the 2017 Mynd Drover Challenge event is now available here.
This is a challenge event and not a race, so the list is just in entrant number order. The event raised £4,000 towards a new minibus for the Church Stretton school, so a big thank-you to all those that took part. See you next year?

*** Boring but Important *** EA REGISTRATION

I know we're fell runners and rules are a detail we'd rather be without, but...

There are some issues coming up with athlete registration. If you are a Mercia member and you wish to register with England Athletics you must do this via Mercia (assuming you weren't a member of another running club first and didn't fill in a change of first claim club form when you joined Mercia). You will then be registered as a Mercia athlete and will be First Claim Mercia for all fell running.
