So after 11 of the 18 rounds of the Club Championship, things are starting to take shape.
A great weekend of racing "up north" and in Wales has just finished with some really noteworthy results for the Club. Headlines were wins for Simon Bailey (overall), Mel Price (ladies) and Billy Starling (U16B) at Burnsall and great placings for Simon (3rd overall), Mel (2nd lady) and the Starling brothers at Grasmere Sports. Whilst the adults called it a weekend on Sunday night (as far as I know), Billy and Joe Starling went on to place highly at Reeth on Bank Holiday Monday.
Results from the two Stiperstones junior races are now up in the results section of the site - they've been amalgamated into one document for simplicity's sake so the U10 results occupy the first five places then the U12s and U14s.
The club will be running three fell running specific coaching sessions over the summer holidays. All three sessions will take place at the scout hut in Church Stretton (on the Rectory Field where the Relays were held last year). The sessions will start at 10:00. Each session will comprise a brief introduction and some inside work on a fell running technique, followed by a coached practical session close to the scout hut. We will then have a short tea/coffee break and do another indoor session before we finish at 12:00.
The Callow race results are now available here. Apologies for the delay but I've been away.
Sorry for the delay, just had a few hitches with getting the results off the laptop and on to the website, but all is well now the results are up and running on the results page of the website
Alastair was missing last night, but the show must go on, so in steps Stuart Cathcart from High Sports in Shrewsbury, those who were running will have seen him hiding behind his camera just before the summit, his pictures can be seen on the High Sport Website, or for a quick link straight to the images Click Here
It may have been one of our smaller fields, but that did not stop the pain as every runner tried their very best, fell running is a fantastic sport, and tonight was one of those nights, the sun shone, it was warm, and everyone had seemed to embrace the friendly feeling that is so typical of our sport, the handicap times issued seemed to matter little, everyone just went out there and ran their socks off, the fact there was a handicap allegedly giving each one of us, slow or fast an equal chance made just one difference, we all tried just a little harder, congratulations goes to the fir
