Combined results for the Shropshire Weekend (Titterstone Clee and Long Mynd Valleys) races are available here.
Results for today's Long Mynd Valleys race are available here. There was one runner that retired without reporting it (to a Marshall or back at the start/finish) and just went home. That person ignored the race instructions (both written and spoken) and needs to be aware of the repercussions of their action. It could result in a full scale mountain rescue operation! Please heed safety instructions.
Results for today's Titterstone Clee fell race are available here.
Forecast is for a clear cool day. There is still significant snow and ice on the tops but the valleys are clear (just wet). The roads over the Mynd are still closed.
There will be mandatory kit requirement of: full waterproof cover (including a top with an integral hood), hat, gloves, map, compass, emergency food. This will be strictly enforced - no kit, no go. Make sure you bring the required kit.
There a few tweaks from last year:
This week's South Shropshire Thursday hill session is a 7pm meet at the cattle grid in Carding Mill Valley.
An alternative session on the Wrekin will commence this week (29th January) meeting at the bottom of the main Wrekin track by Forest Glen car park at 19:30. Trail or fell shoes - this week's session will be timed short hill reps (warm-up then 5 to 8 x 60 to 90 second reps at 90% effort with near full recoveries). Session including warm-down should take about an hour. Bring a head torch and wear something bright / reflective (primarily for safety around the car park).
