Now folks are well into their competitive seasons we'll be looking to keep your strength and speed topped up over the next few weeks with a variety of sessions ranging from short hill reps through to fartlek and longer efforts. We'll try to slot in some technical work as well. All are welcome to come along for a decent hard session. We start at 19:15 at the bottom of the main path on the Wrekin and finish between 20:15 and 20:30.
I'm very pleased to announce that Mercia took away three prizes from the iconic Three Peaks race on Saturday. Andy Davies (2nd in 2:53), Will Neill (8th; 3:06), Paul Jones (24th; 3:19) and Tim Werrett (29th; 3:21) won the Mens' Team Prize in a very tight battle with DPFR. In addition to his top ten finish Will was the first U25. Mel Price (142nd; 3:50) ran strongly too to finish first lady vet in a stacked field.
Due to a mechanism mysterious race numbers 181 and 182 and 183 got swapped around in the results. 181 was in fact Eloise Lee, 182 was Andrew Weaver and 183 was Peter Hudson. This moves Eloise to first senior lady, Andrew to 23rd senior man and Peter to 4th vet 50. Corrected results are here.
This week is an easy run with folks having raced last night and some doing VLM or 3 Peaks on Saturday.
Meet 19:15 at the gateway at the bottom of the Wrekin main path as usual.
Normal training will resume next week.
