Well done to everyone who travelled to Clough Pike. Another impressive set of results with numerous top 3 finishers.. Brillliant performances!! Some names spelt incorrectly which I have pointed out to the team at the FRA (http://fellrunner.org.uk/).
We are one point ahead of Ambleside AC in the club champs (http://www.felljunior.org.uk/FRAJunior/pointstableclubs.php) so we need as many runners as possible at Church Stretton on 2nd July for the last race. The details are on http://fellrunner.org.uk/ but you need to scroll down to find the race information, but I have pasted it below. Mercia are asking people to pre-enter so if you get a chance, please do this. http://fellrunner.org.uk/documents/FRA%20Junior%20Event%20Entry%20Form%202015-16%20V12%2010-09-2015.pdf
Stretton English Junior Championship and British Junior Intercounties Fell Races – Saturday 2nd July
The U16 and U18s race will also form the Intercounties competition. Anyone can enter and run in this race, but only runners who are nominated by their county coordinator / selectors will count for the Intercounties element of the race.
Please enter by sending a standard junior entry form with a cheque for £2 payable to Mercia Fell Runners to:
PLEASE, PLEASE PRE-ENTER so we can add your entries to our results / entrants software in advance. Processing entries on the day will be difficult for us – and impossible beyond 13:00 when the races will have started and the registration team has switched into their results role. They will have to process six sets of results for the Junior Champs and two sets of Intercounties results in the space of about three hours so we hope you understand why we have asked for pre-entries.
There is a limit to how many cars we can park up at the race venue so please car share. The parking field is up a rough farm track so don’t arrive in your Ferrari unless you fancy walking up from one of the car parks in the town. We are hoping to have refreshments available at the race venue, and there will be a low-key race “Three Fingers Rock” for adults using the U16/U18 course the following morning. Entry for the Sunday race will be free if you helped with the juniors races.
Further information and updates including the running order / timetable for the day will be posted on the FRA website – please check about a week before the races in case we need to tell you anything else.
We look forward to seeing you in Shropshire! Thanks everyone,
Jim Tinnion on behalf of Mercia Fell Runners
