Memorial to Doug Morris

A permanent memorial to one of Shropshire's best known athletes is to
be created at the site of one of his favourite race venues.

Doug Morris, who died last year, organised running events across
Shropshire and north Wales, including the hugely popular Lake Vyrnwy
Half Marathon.
Runners who knew Mr Morris, are now getting together to launch an
appeal to buy a bench to be sited somewhere on the shores of the lake -
the scene of 20 half marathons and earlier marathons.

Rainbow Run - Bluebell Walk

A small field of elite athletes took to the slopes
of Church Stretton as part of The Lingen Davies fund raising event held in
Church Stretton each year, there was a rumour going round that all the runners
were going to do it as a pack running together the whole way round, but the
ranks were soon broken and I shot to the front (acting as the Hare you
understand) the pack followed and the pace picked up soon Nick Jones and Graham
Spencer were up the front pushing for the lead, Graham had obviously forgotten

With the recent wet weather and cooler temperatures, I confidently assured the band of willing neighbours who help out in this event that ‘I expect about 50 to turn up…………….’

Sheinton Steeplechase Wed 30th April

The Sheinton Steeplechase is not really a fell race, its definately not a road race, but it,s better than a trail race, the course start on the roads then finds itself on the rolling hillside that borders the Severn Valley, its a real goody where some of Shropshires best fell runners can take on road runners in a duel on neutral ground, the prize giving is one of the best too, runners file into the church after the race to a wonderful and sometime bizarre array of prizes, The race is organised by Mercia fellrunner Grahame Hughes in aid of the local church in Sheinton where the prize-giving is
