It's nearly time for the Fell Runners Association Big Night Out. Saturday 22nd November this year is the date for the FRA's Annual Dinner and Presentation Evening. Mercia have been invited to host this event and all the Fell Running world will be there, we have at least 10 medals to be given to Mercia runners that night. Be there to cheer our own boys and girls at this national event, we can't do it without you! We have three tables of Mercians and we would like lots more.
The brochure for the program can be viewed here.

Mercia Fell Runners Extend a Hearty Welcome to Fell Running Friends
For information on how to obtain tickets please read more….
Results for today's Breiddens Fell Race are available here.
Due to limited interest in club arranged transport, and the costs being in excess of own transport with 2+ car sharing, the committee has decided not to make group transport arrangements, nor accommodation.
So for those going, can you make your own arrangement for transport and accommodation. If you intend to camp at the venue, please be aware that it must be pre-booked.
All those going to the relays - running or supporting! I am looking into options for camping and transport. Registration on the Sunday morning is from 7 am - 8.45 am. All leg 1 runners will need to be kit checked by 9.45am ready for a 10am start. We can also register between 4pm and 7pm on the Saturday.
Results for last nights Ragleth race are available here. This was the last in the summer series and prizes were awarded for that as well last night. Well done Mel Price and John Taylor. Final results for the series will be posted later.
Just to point this out to any of you that didn't already know: Mercia, Maldwyn AC and Wales International Andy Davies competed in the Commonwealth Games marathon on Sunday 27th July. Andy had the honour of opening Wales' campaign in the athletics at Glasgow 2014 and finished 17th of 27 with a fantastic run just a minute outside of his PB. This is no mean achievement considering his previous best was on a flatter course with pacemakers at Manchester earlier in the year.
