The aim of the club is to promote and organise 'fell' races in and around the West Midlands.

Snowdon and Whittle Pike Races

Whittle Pike 2011 Ladies Team

I've had a report from Ian Grindley on the Snowdon race, and am also posting the results from Whittle Pike where I was pleased to be able to support the three Mercia ladies running, although I didn't see much of the race being too busy supervising the adventure playground...

Recent "away" races and events

Sorry for the lack of an update recently, due to pressure of time whilst organising the fell running leader course you'll have read about in the newsletter. I also haven't had too many emails with reports...
 
If anyone has more reports, please send them to me at jim.tinnion@me.com. Some notes on this weekend's Snowdon race would be very much appreciated.

Stiperstones Results

Results from tonight's race can be found on in the results pages of the website, hopefully Alastair's will have 'some' good photo's, apologise if he doesn't though, as he ended up Marshalling with one hand while trying to taking pictures with the other, apologise also to the marshals on the junior race, who waited in vain for the singular U14 to arrive, unfortunately for them, he had decided to follow the main race, missing their check point completely, hopefully next race will see more junior runners, and they will be better directed!!!!!!!!!!!!

Party!!! Ragleth Inn, Tuesday 19th July

Paul Flinn will be 50 on Tuesday 19th July.

Paul would like to invite everyone who is able to come to the Ragleth Inn after the Tuesday night run (so around 20:45 to 21:00 for anyone who isn't going to run) to celebrate his move into another highly competitive age category!

See you there!

Ras yr Aran - British Champs

Hot off the press are the results from today's Ras yr Aran. There were good results for a number of Mercia's men (so a good team performance too) and an excellent performance by Mel Price, our lone lady competitor.

Callow

Results for Sundays Callow Fell Race race are now available here.

Callow Fell Race 03/07/2011

Andy Yapp, 4th overall, Callow 2011

Well that looked pretty hot work for you all! I was warm enough jogging from Ashes Hollow round to the finish and then up Callow taking pictures... Anyway Steve Cale won the men's, and Mel Price was first lady. The full results are now available at the link below (thanks to Phil Clarke for typing up and Dave Nichols for posting):
