Thursday Hill Sessions

This week's South Shropshire Thursday hill session is a 7pm meet at the cattle grid in Carding Mill Valley.

An alternative session on the Wrekin will commence this week (29th January) meeting at the bottom of the main Wrekin track by Forest Glen car park at 19:30. Trail or fell shoes - this week's session will be timed short hill reps (warm-up then 5 to 8 x 60 to 90 second reps at 90% effort with near full recoveries). Session including warm-down should take about an hour. Bring a head torch and wear something bright / reflective (primarily for safety around the car park).

A note from Bob Dredge (the race organiser):

Many thanks to all who ran today and even more thanks to the Marshalls who were out in the cold winds for up to 4 1/2 hours.
Can anyone who thinks they won a prize (1st 3 in each age group or 1st 2 if a small entry one) but did not collect it contact me and I will do my best to get it to you.
