Terry Davies South Shropshire Round - 18th & 19th July 2003

­Great achievements deserve a little recognition, and I'm sure Terry will no­t mind us spread­ing the word about his successful completion of a South Shropshire Round last weekend, Terry is the first person to complete this round (to our knowledge) which was specially devised for him ­as an alternative to the classic ountain rounds of Wales and The Lakes, the route started at The Ragle­th Pub in Little Stretton and followed the checkpoints of the longmynd Hike as far as Corndon then picking up the Shropshire Way at Rock House near the Stiperstones, The Shropshire Way was then followed anti clockwise via Ludlow and the Clee Hills, onto Wenlock Edge before returning to Little Stretton using The Jack Mytton Way. A distance of 85 miles and 12,000 feet ascent with a target time of under 24 hours

I'm sure you will join us in sending our congratulations. Just for the record we have included times and splits below, regards

             Keith & Pauline (Richards)
