Well done to Tom & Naomi on organising their first Fell race for Mercia this evening, it was a surprisingly sunny evening and all went well on the hill, especially with the fantastic turn out for the junior races, well done all who took part, results are available on line on the results page for both the senior and junior races.
Pictures will be available shortly at uksportpictures.com and Fellrunniningpictures.co.uk
As some of you will have seen there is an event at Stiperstones Primary School which may overlap with the race on Wednesday 18th, so parking may be difficult. Tom has asked that if at all possible you PLEASE use the car parks at Snailbeach and the Bog and car share for the final couple of miles to Stiperstones Village. Many thanks!
Just a reminder that the date on the website for this event was wrong, and it will be taking place on Wednesday 11th July at 19:30, see below for more details.
No-one would have guessed from the weather that it was July: it was more like April or October than last year's scorcher. But Russell and Jane put on another fabulous race yesterday. I'm still overcoming a couple of technical hitches with the results but hope to have them up tomorrow. Roland Stafford won the race in 60:42, with Tom Roo second and Ed Davies third. Mel Price was fourth overall and first lady in a superb time of 64:06. It was good to see Matt Clewes and Paul Cadman both running well in 5th and 6th places.
