Edale Skyline - Mercia Champs Race - Entries

Edale Skyline is traditionally a very big field and this year will be no exception as it's the first race in the English Championships. It's also the second long race on the Mercia Champs. The race will not be easy to get into this year. Entries will be on SI Entries ( from 31st January. It will fill very quickly so get this date in your diaries and do the biz!

Trig Points - 1st Race in 2013 Champs - This Sunday!!

Don't forget your first opportunity to score in the 2013 Mercia Champs is at the Trig points race this Sunday at 11am. It's a nice runnable route (although it's unmarked - you have to find the route yourself and race maps are available at registration). I reckon it's the easiest race to do to get a banker for a long race score you need for the champs, although there will be opportunities for higher scoring later in the year at tougher races for most of us. More details are available here.

Morning After Results

The results for the runners of the Morning After race are available here.

Environmental Issues - Erosion on the Mynd

The article about erosion on the Mynd in the latest Mercia newsletter is also available here along with the map that shows the areas the NT want us to avoid. Please read it and act on it.

NEW EVENT - Mercia Hill Trial

UPDATE 08/01/2013: We now have 30 folks signed up, our landowner permission almost sorted with the NT, the marshalls and the registration / timing / event venue sorted. Can you all get word out to your friends and other clubs etc. and let me know if you are intending to run so I can get the right number of maps printed. I will do spares but they could cost us a pound a piece so I don't want to have loads left.
