This week's Long Mynd hill session is on Thursday, 7pm meet at the cattle grid in Carding Mill Valley.
I'm looking for volunteers for marshalling and other duties for the Cardingmill Canter on Saturday 14th March. The maximum time commitment on the day is 11am to 3pm. Please call me (Dave) on 01694 725597, or text 07850 654 157 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to help. Thanks.
Results for today's Long Mynd Valleys race are available here. There was one runner that retired without reporting it (to a Marshall or back at the start/finish) and just went home. That person ignored the race instructions (both written and spoken) and needs to be aware of the repercussions of their action. It could result in a full scale mountain rescue operation! Please heed safety instructions.
Combined results for the Shropshire Weekend (Titterstone Clee and Long Mynd Valleys) races are available here.
Forecast is for a clear cool day. There is still significant snow and ice on the tops but the valleys are clear (just wet). The roads over the Mynd are still closed.

There a few tweaks from last year:
