Wrekin Fell Race (Shrops Winter series)


Final race of the winter series, held in glorious ‘summer’ sunshine and too hot for a fell race!

Guy was next (41st, 53.32) 1st over 60, and Tom 4th over 60 ( a stride behind a 60yr old Springfield Strider), 62nd, in 57.46, and faster than last year. Steve Cale won, in 37.28, a full minute ahead of Tim Davies. 87 completed the course.

Series results: Richard 35th (11th SM) – 251%; Guy 49th (1st MV65) – 234%; Tom 89th (4th MV60) – 204%; Dave Thomlinson 90th(? errors in his results) – 204%; Gary (137%) and Adam (121%) only ran 2 [min 3] races.
