The Four-Midables Race Series 2014
Please note that our brand new multi-terrain series, for the four premier Newport races in the late spring and early summer, has a new dedicated webpage.
The series is generously sponsored by Shropshire Homes.
There is a fantastic multi terrain course for each of the races ranging from 10k to 7 miles. You can look forward to spectacular views, varied routes and terrain, and a very warm welcome. All races are open to runners regardless of pace or experience.
The races are:
Lilleshall Monumental 30 March 2014
Sheriffhales Shuffle 04 May 2014
Newport Carnival 14 June 2014
Gnosall Carnival 21 June 2014
Technical T-Shirt for all series entrants!
This is a great way to grab a bargain as well as compete in a series which will operate in much the same way as the Sexarathon. Every race will have individual prizes in the same way as usual, but in addition those who have entered the series will receive points for how well they finish relative to others in their age division. The winner will get 100 points, second will get 99 etc. At the end of the series there will be prizes for the divisional winners.
Winter Handicap Race 4
Please note that the March edition of the winter handicap for club members is on Wednesday 12 February 2014 at 6.30pm as usual. The race is open to new competitors as well as those who have already raced in the series. If you have not ran in the series so far, but would like to, then submit an estimated time (in round minutes) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
January Jog 2014 Results

Thank you for all the participants and marshals who took part in the January Jog. It was great to see so many people turn out on a cold winter day to support Macmillan Cancer Research. Over £3500 was raised by Ian Kevan and his band of supporters.

Winter Handicap Race 3 – January 2014
Well done to all the competitors and marshals in what was a pretty foul evening to be running. A minor miracle then, that 36 people finished the race with nine of them improving times.
A special mention to Sue Roberts who had the best improvement for non-newbies of 49 seconds; and also to Robin Guy for the nights fastest time of 19:07.
Thank you to The Wheatsheaf for the apres-run hospitality.
Wheaton Aston Roman 10K and Fun Run 2013
Race Date: Friday 27 December 2013 - St.Mary’s School, Wheaton Aston
Well done to all our competitors and marshals who were at Wheaton Aston. There were some excellent times and performances when, lets face it, the conditions were far from ideal for racing.
