Gnosall Carnival 10K 2015
The Gnosall Carnival 10K was greeted with the usual rain at the start of the race which led to some interesting conditions underfoot. This made the demanding course, for our series ending race, even more tricky than usual.
Congratulations to our men’s and women’s race winners. Robin Sedman-Smith and Michelle Fox won the race today, and also triumphed in the series as a whole. Thank you once again to our sponsors for the series – Shropshire Homes – also our marshals and competitors in the race today, and all those who took part in each of the events.
And (provisionally at first) the final series results:
Newport Carnival 10K 2015
Thank you to all the competitors, marshals and supporters, who turned up to run in what can only be described as ‘inclement’ conditions. There were some great performances despite the sogginess underfoot. Well done, in particular to the winners of the men’s and women’s races – Chris Davies (33:43) and Claire Martin (36:23) – both of Telford AC.
These are the final results:
The following file shows the series positions as they stand tonight, after three races, with just Gnosall to go. Apologies to Judi Clayton who had a blank space beside her Lilleshall result before now. Because she joined the series at the Shuffle it was inadvertently missed. This is now resolved and the overall positions have been amended accordingly.
Sheriffhales Shuffle 2015
Many thanks to all the competitors and marshals who made the Shuffle a great success today. Everybody survived the entrance to the car park, the archery contest at Lilleshall and the soft conditions under foot to record some very good times.
The winner in the men’s competition in a time of 43:51 was Robin Sedman-Smith of Newport & District Running Club. The women’s race was won by Michelle Fox of Stafford Harriers in a time of 51:27 – congratulations to both our winners and all those who won category prizes.
Here are the final results:
The results for the fun run will follow.
Here are the series standings after two races:
Lilleshall Monumental 10K
A big thanks to all of you who ran in the Lilleshall Monumental on Sunday.
If you haven’t entered the series, there is still time to do so before the second of the Fourmidables on 3rd May – The Sherrifhales Shuffle. Just click here for the conversion entry form final. Hopefully we will see you there!
Don’t forget, for each race there is a high quality embroidered towel as a momento, and a ,matching bath towel for those who enter the series.
Once again our numbers of Monumental 10K and Fun Runners were up and we’re delighted to say that since our first race in 2010 we have now doubled the number of entrants. This allows us to continue to support, with donations, our very worthy causes, so thank you everyone. We would also like to thank those of you who have given us so many compliments about the course, the enthusiasm of our marshals and the race memento’s.
Four-midable Multi-Terrain Race Series 2015
We are, once again, glad to announce that Shropshire Homes are sponsoring the race series that proved so popular last year.
As the name suggests, there are four races in the spring and early summer. The series kicks off with Lilleshall Monumental, continues with the Sheriffhales Shuffle, and then finishes with the two carnival races in Newport and Gnosall that are just one week apart. They are multi-terrain and offer a wonderful way to discover the footpaths and byways of northeast Shropshire and west Staffordshire.
Further race details (including online entry for each race) can be found in the dedicated race page on the tab above or by clicking here.

If you haven’t taken part in the first two races and want to have a go then please email a predicted time to firstname.lastname@example.org

Thanks to both marshals and runners in the coolish conditions:

Wheaton Aston 10K – Saturday 27 December 2014
The Wheaton Aston Roman 10K has been part of the traditional post-Christmas calendar for many years. There are usually around 450 to 500 competitors who are out to shake off the excesses of the Christmas Day turkey dinner. The course has been fixed for some time and despite the possibility of snow and ice is a fast route.
The fun run begins at 10.30am and the main event at 11.00am. The start for both races is at St.Mary’s School in Marston Road, Wheaton Aston and all finishers will receive a memento.
THANK YOU TO ALL FOR MAKING THE DAY A SUCCESSFUL ONE.
Many thanks to our sponsor LOGALOG

Hill & Fell Race Calendar
Charlie Leventon and a few others have put together a definitive or master source of hill and fell races in Shropshire and its borders – hoping to promote consistency and highlight potential clashes before races are registered with FRA or WFRA.
However, there remains a number of gaps in the information and there are dates which remain tentative and require confirmation. The more attention we can draw to this calendar the greater the chances that we can refine it. As and when amendments are brought their attention and tentative dates are verified, Charlie and his team will make the necessary alterations.
The calendar can be found on the calendars page.
