The next Mercia Race will be the Carding Mill Canter on Saturday 1st of March, the Course starts and finishes in the Cardingmill Valley and follows a route devised some 10 years ago by local runner Gill Harris, although billed as a 4 mile race it's possibly closer to 5 and as the record time of 37minutes and 35seconds set by Tim Davies suggests it is a tough little race, the Course has been used as a English Championships race on one occasion although in that year we did have to lengthen it slightly as the National Trust was concerned about so many runners using the steeper descents, we have now gone back to the original Course and it is a true Shropshire Classic
