Don't forget your first opportunity to score in the 2013 Mercia Champs is at the Trig points race this Sunday at 11am. It's a nice runnable route (although it's unmarked - you have to find the route yourself and race maps are available at registration). I reckon it's the easiest race to do to get a banker for a long race score you need for the champs, although there will be opportunities for higher scoring later in the year at tougher races for most of us. More details are available here.

The results for yesterdays Devils Chair Dash are available here.There were some interesting fancy dress outfits on show - Steve Cale was particularly extreme. I'm Alistair got a photo.
The article about erosion on the Mynd in the latest Mercia newsletter is also available here along with the map that shows the areas the NT want us to avoid. Please read it and act on it.
UPDATE 08/01/2013: We now have 30 folks signed up, our landowner permission almost sorted with the NT, the marshalls and the registration / timing / event venue sorted. Can you all get word out to your friends and other clubs etc. and let me know if you are intending to run so I can get the right number of maps printed. I will do spares but they could cost us a pound a piece so I don't want to have loads left.

Mercia had good contingents out at three races over the weekend: Rhobell Fawr, Roaches and Mad Jacks. Club athletes won at both the fell races (in fact we had a 1,2 at RF and a 1,3 at Roaches) and we also had a 1,2,3 in the ladies at Mad Jacks (although being a cross country race Anna was officially running for Shrewsbury).
