Lilleshall 5 mile race

Wednesday 18th April 2018

Race report by Mel Deakin

This race is the first race in a series of 6 organised by Telford AC. It is a 5 mile road race starting and finishing at Lilleshall National Sports Centre, all on tarmac roads and paths. Starting near the hockey pitches, then running down the very long driveway, the first couple of miles is downhill then a loop around the village then back to the driveway and then up hill to the finish –  definitely nowhere near as challenging as the Lilleshall Monumental hill but just enough to make you work hard. I thoroughly enjoyed this race, the weather was great, the setting beautiful and it was very well organised. For me it was a welcome change to run a shorter race after a long winter and spring marathon training. For Ben it was his first race for a while due to injury. A lovely evening out and a race I will definitely do again.

Stafford Half

15th April 2018
The Stafford Half postponed from March due to snow. Unfortunately the new date clashed with an other popular local event (Newcastle 10K), so a much smaller Harriers turn out this year.

No race reports yet.

My first attempt at matching members with the results (please let me know if I have missed yours).
