Rainbow Run - Bluebell Walk

A small field of elite athletes took to the slopes
of Church Stretton as part of The Lingen Davies fund raising event held in
Church Stretton each year, there was a rumour going round that all the runners
were going to do it as a pack running together the whole way round, but the
ranks were soon broken and I shot to the front (acting as the Hare you

Sheinton Steeplechase Wed 30th April

The Sheinton Steeplechase is not really a fell race, its definately not a road race, but it,s better than a trail race, the course start on the roads then finds itself on the rolling hillside that borders the Severn Valley, its a real goody where some of Shropshires best fell runners can take on road runners in a duel on neutral ground, the prize giving is one of the best too, runners file into the church after the race to a wonderful and sometime bizarre array of prizes, The race is organised by Mercia fellrunner Grahame Hughes in aid of the local church in Sheinton where the prize-giving is

Wrekin Streak
