RACE ORGANISERS

Please send results to results@merciafellrunners.org.uk, preferably as a spreadsheet, they will then be posted on this site.

SERIES RACE COMPETITORS

When filling an entry form for a race can you make sure your name is written very clearly in exactly the same way for every race (e.g. always Andy and not sometimes Andrew). Mistakes hard to correct afterwards as the results information is published in many places (often within hours of the race finishing).
