Silent Valley Race - British Championships - Sunday 14th April - Mourne Mountains, Northern Ireland
A few of us set off to Northern Ireland for the first of the British Championship counters. Silent Valley is an AM, at just under 10 miles and a climb of 1490m/4888ft. We made our way there in various modes of transport and at different times. Hardcore father and son duo Glen and Huw Davies took the brave option of camping the night before!!
HELP NEEDED at the above Race. This prestigious race in the English Championship Series is at Gaerstone Farm, Church Stretton on Saturday 27th April. These races start at 12 noon and are open to all children between the ages of 6 and 18. We really need marshals on the hill, car parkers, help with refreshments and generally lots of people to help both on the Friday and the Saturday.
Maps for the event centre, parking and all the race routes can be printed from here.

I am contacting local running clubs to let them know about an exciting new 5k run that I am organising this year.
Visibility for most of the course was about 20 feet today and the forecast is similar for tomorrow, so those of you wishing to take part, please make sure you bring a map and a compass as well as the normal FRA kit (full body cover and a whistle). Even those of you that think you know the Long Mynd will find navigation tricky. So bring a map and compass, 20 feet is only a few seconds in terms of your separation from others - you'll be alone before you know it!
Anybody who fancies making a career out of sports development and loves being in the Shropshire hills may want to check out this job on offer from the National Trust.
I'm looking for marshalling help for the Cardingmill Canter on Saturday 9th March. Any help offered will be gratefully received. You can text me on 07850 654157 or call me on 01694 725597. (I can offer a bribe for Mercia members - you get points in the championship!). Sorry for the terseness of this, but those of you that know me will know I'm a bit of a robot.
Telford Parkrun starts this Saturday at 9am by the Town Park Visitor Centre - see the link. All you need to do first is register on line and print out the barcode pdf they send you. You just turn up and start. At the finish they scan your barcode which contains all your details and your time gets united with your name and whacked in the results. It's great fun and all the info you need is at the link below!
