I think we can say we had a great day, feedback from the fell running community seems to be very positive, the venue worked really well, the sun shone, and to top it all off the boys won Gold and the girls won Silver, it turned out even better than our dreams could ever have wished for. All our runners were brilliant, every last one of them did their solid best. The Mercia Management Committee are so proud of you all and wish to thank every last one of you.
Pauline, Charlie and Myself would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped for all their hard work, and you certainly worked hard before, during and after the event, because without that, all our work would have come to nothing, So, please accept a massive thank You.
We would also like to thank all the runners from the many Clubs up and down the country who travelled down to Shropshire, I think you'll agree, we have some fantastic hills round here, and you were all great sports, these two thing made for a magic atmosphere, and especial thanks to those who have taken the trouble to speak or write to us thanking Mercia for our hard work, it makes it all worthwhile, to see a sample of some of the comments click here.
I'm told full results were up and available to view on the Sports Ident website before we'd even finihed packing up, Great Job Martin, Thanks To You.
