RACE ORGANISERS

SERIES RACE COMPETITORS

When filling an entry form for a race make sure your name is written very clearly and exactly the same for every race (e.g. always Andy and not sometimes Andrew). Mistakes are hard to correct as the results are published in many places (usually shortly after the race).

Batch Bash Results

Coaching Skills

Mercia has a new Fell and Mountain Running Leader, Andy Pye, who will be delivering primarily Thursday night sessions on the Wrekin, along with James Dowdall and Helen Stokes. Former member Julian Hart also completed the leader course on Saturday and will no doubt be sending some of his BRAT coached athletes our way...

We also had two very useful workshops on Sunday which were attended by Andy and several of our existing leaders and coaches. Hopefully you'll notice some widening of the coaching service the Mercia offers over the coming months - more of that to follow.
