The aim of the club is to promote and organise 'fell' races in and around the West Midlands.

Rodneys Pillar & Shroppy Handicap 2013

Its that time of year again, when I take lots of results from previous race, chuck them in a hat and come out with average % score and prospective time for more runners than you can shake a stick at, take a look at the tables I've produced by clicking the link below to see how well I think you can do, it's all just for fun, give's a little twist to what we do all the time, and whats great about is we see totally different people picking up prizes at the end of the race.

Gogbatch Gallop

This evening saw the annual junior race organised by Rick and Jan Robson on the hills around Gogbatch, it must be one of the most wonderful evenings in the Shropshire Fell Running Calender, 24 small, very enthusiastic, and absolutely delightful fell runners of the future raced it out with either their Mum's, Dad's or trusted guardians by their side (that's assuming they could keep up).

Ian Hodgson Mountain Relays - Sun 6 Oct 2013

I'm looking to get a scratch team together to go and represent Mercia at this classic event up north, partly as an in memoriam for Pennine FR stalwart and top fell running good guy Daz Holloway who died of a heart attack whilst competing last year.

The event starts on Sunday morning at 09:15 and takes the form of a relay with four legs, each of which must be run by two runners (we can't double up so we need 8 and possibly a travelling reserve). There's plenty of camping nearby, and good pubs etc for Saturday night (I did say a scratch team!)

Batch Bash junior results

The results from Wednesday night's Batch Bash junior race are now up in the results section of the site.

Batch Bash

A wet spring evening, in the middle of a cold week, not a good recipe for a big turnout at a mid week race, yet the Batch Bash saw the biggest field so far in the summer series, 110 runners took part in the senior race with another 25 in the juniors.  Competition was as fierce as ever, Steve Cale out for the first time since The Wrekin showing he was back on form, beating Tim Werrett winner of the previous series race on Caer Caradoc, and Paul Jones completing a Mercia 1,2,3, only 25 second parted all three, but young Ben Ashcroft was not far behind and  looks totally at home on t

A huge Thankyou to everyone involved in our event "Run for the Wild" - From Anna Bartlett

After a few last minute nerves, and a few sleepless nights,(organising an event is tough and I'm a amateur!!!) I laughed and cried!! it was so funny!! the
effort that people had gone to, making costumes, eating cake!! and lugging them selves, their udders, shells (Bob) and feathers up Grandma batch, all for selected Wildlife charities, was truly fabulous (the Bayston Hill salad dodgers!! must have been in their element surrounded by all those animals!! yum)

Bluebell Run incorporating Run for the Wild

Church Stretton saw something a little differant today, the Bluebell Run as alway been associated with raising money for charity and doing it's bit for a good cause, but today for just one running it was taken over by a Gorilla, and her sidekicks a bizzy bee and a teddy bear, the gorilla was Anna Barlett who wanted to do something special for endangered spices, so she persueded many of our normally hardened fell runners to go fancy dress, not just that, but bring their familes along to do a fun run/walk too, the main race started at 10am on the standard 5 mile course, wi
