Memorial to Doug Morris

A permanent memorial to one of Shropshire's best known athletes is to
be created at the site of one of his favourite race venues.

Doug Morris, who died last year, organised running events across
Shropshire and north Wales, including the hugely popular Lake Vyrnwy
Half Marathon.
Runners who knew Mr Morris, are now getting together to launch an
appeal to buy a bench to be sited somewhere on the shores of the lake -
the scene of 20 half marathons and earlier marathons.
