On Tuesday 19th April 2011 I arrived at John o'Groats having successfully completed my end to end ride. I really enjoyed the experience, managing to complete the 896 mile journey over a 10 day period in a total time of a little over 55 hours.
Mark passed through Shrewsbury today on his way from Lands End to John o' Groats, he has been on the road for 5 days now, and has notched up 378 miles so far, having spent 24 hours in the saddle. The going has not been easy, pedaling alone, and into strong headwinds, but today with company of fellow fell runners, Richard Roberts and Anna Bartlett even the wind seems to have change sides and gave a little push.
On Tuesday 12th April Mark & Rachael will be arriving in Leintwardine on Mark’s charity ride to John O’ Groats (see Mark’s LE JOG) and they will be staying with us overnight.
This seems like a good excuse to invite folk over to our place for an alternative Tuesday night run, then meet up with Mark & Rachael over food at our place, followed by liquid refreshments at the Crown Inn, Clunton.

Following the excitement of having the National Championships played out on our own doorstep, it's back to the local scene, and I've enjoyed working my way through the names of runners who do our local races, and updating them into the Winter Series Results, you will have to forgive me if I've made any mistakes, I now have over 700 names in the file to sort through, and update, but hopefully I've got it somewhere near right, if you do notice any errors or omissions, from this or previous results, do drop us a line at keithandpauliine2010@talkt

Well the first race in the Shropshire Weekend has gone well, it's now time for us to gear up for the BIG race tomorrow, Titterstone Clee is a wonderful friendly race, starting just outside the remote village of Cleeton St Mary, on the back of Titterstone Clee, prior to the race the normal discussions were held as to which way everyone was going, the race set off, and from my desired position at the back of the field, it was interesting to watch the field split up and go it's different ways, there are not many races these days which give so much route choice, Lloyd Taggert and Jackie Lee hea
