There is an informal social run on a Tuesday night from Church / Little Stretton - info HERE.

GILL HARRIS ROUND

We have our own mini-Paddy Buckley (takes 3-6 hours)! For info on the Gill Harris Long Mynd Tops Challenge Click Here. The records were updated 20/01/2013, click here to see details of completed rounds.

RACE ORGANISERS

Please send results to results@merciafellrunners.org.uk, preferably as a spreadsheet, they will then be posted on this site.

SERIES RACE COMPETITORS

When filling an entry form for a race make sure your name is written very clearly and exactly the same for every race (e.g. always Andy and not sometimes Andrew). Mistakes are hard to correct as the results are published in many places (usually shortly after the race).

VOLUNTEER ROTA

Give something back! Races do not happen without volunteers to help marshalling, et al. Click here to see the help wanted for Mercia races.

Prize Draw for Stud Marks...

THE PRIZE DRAW – held at the Club’s Awards Evening (Sat 24th March)

Many, many thanks to everyone who put their hands in their pockets for a chance to win Stud Marks on the Summits. Gail Jones kindly drew the winning ticket (no. 209) which was purchased by Craig Henn. Congratulations to Craig who has tried (at potentially great expense) on several occasions to bid for a copy on ebay.

Ticket sales raised £373 which is a superb effort and compares very favourably with the price of a copy currently on sale (£325) in a second-hand bookshop.
