Shropshire summer fell series – 2017

After 6 races on Wednesday evenings, running over the Wrekin, Stiperstones, Caradoc, and the Long Mynd the final series results show a record 12 Croft runners taking part, admittedly 6 of whom managed only one race – the one easiest to get to after work.

Gary G not only won the over 70 category, but also headed the Croft rankings, with 197 points, after completing all 6 races. I was second (and therefore 2nd MV70) with 165pts from 3 races, Gary P scored 133 from only 2 races, just ahead of Emma who ran two good races to accumulate 120 pts. Tom has 110 pts, with  his best 4 races to count out of the 5 he ran, and then followed those who could only manage one race each: Irina (71pts), Sue P (35), Sam (34), Jo T (30), Lisa (29) and Carol (17).

The winter series starts on October 8th, with registration at Criggion village hall, for the Breidden Hills race. It’s obviously longer than the evening summer series, but a good preparation for the Herefordshire cross country.

PS I somehow missed Nigel T’s result – sorry! He ran in only two of the races, but still managed to score 183 points. Points are awarded according to finishing position: 121 for first place, 120 for second etc, with the 121st finisher scoring just one point, as do any who finish after 121st place.
