On the 25th anniversary of Mercia Fell Runners inception and as we approach the anniversary of the Long Mynd Valleys race, Nick Kingston, one of the clubs founders thought it fitting to devise a new fell running/walking challenge on the Long Mynd. Hence the Long Mynd Tops in tribute to our colleague Gill, who loved these hill.
Mercia Fell Runners wish to use this website to help club members and others meet at fell races and/or share transport wherever possible, to promote a friends network, that helps us all cut our carbon footprint and reduce the cost of travelling to away events

Mercia Fellrunner Daniel Brazer has been putting in a few up's and downs in the biggest mountains Great Britain has to offer, the travelling, alone deserves a medal, Dan competed in all three classic races in England, Wales and Scotland, and when the results were combined from The Scafell Pike Race, Snowdon Fell Race and Ben Nevis he was second behind Mark McGoldrick of Wharfdale H with 261 point, the ladies title, Queen of The Mountains went to Lynne Clough of Chorley H.
Well done Dan, Great to see Mercia up there mixing it with the best.

Mercia were again foiled in the bid to become The British Hill & Fellrunning Team Relay Champions. For what seems like the last ten years Mercia have impressed everyone at the Annual Relay Championships, regularly beating a host of top northern Clubs, this year was no exception, however the top prize still eludes them, teams of six runners compete over 4 legs, Mercia had Pete Vale & Tim Werrett on leg one, Roland Stafford on leg two, Graham Gristwood and Andrew Davies on leg three, and British Champion Tim Davies on the final leg.
Results from todays fell race on The Briedddens won by British Champion Tim Davies are now posted on the results page
