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 and in exactly the same way for every race (e.g. always Andy and not sometimes Andrew). Data entry mistakes are very hard to correct after the event as the results information is propagated to many places (often within a few hours of the race finishing).

Andy Davies - Commonwealth Games Marathon

Just to point this out to any of you that didn't already know: Mercia, Maldwyn AC and Wales International Andy Davies competed in the Commonwealth Games marathon on Sunday 27th July. Andy had the honour of opening Wales' campaign in the athletics at Glasgow 2014 and finished 17th of 27 with a fantastic run just a minute outside of his PB. This is no mean achievement considering his previous best was on a flatter course with pacemakers at Manchester earlier in the year.

Summer Series results after 6

Results so far, after 6 races, for the summer series are available here.

Bridges or Bust results

Results for todays (rather warm) Bridges or Bust race is available here.
The race was won by a large margin (4 minutes) by John Gilbert of Kent AC from London. Here on holiday John? Very well done. Next up was Paul Jones of Mercia, fresh back from sky running in Europe someplace. Mel Price was first lady, but not far behind was Emma Gould, watch out Mel!

Hi all

Have got an entry for Borrowdale going spare if anyone wants it, due to knee injury. Contact Matt Scriven (Mercia) on 07931 808121 and I'll post it out.
