Tuesday "run in the hills" session

An informal group meets every Tuesday in the Church Stretton co-op car park at 7pm for a social run in the local hills. All welcome. Runs typically last an hour to an hour and a half, then we retire for some serious carbo loading in a nearby ale house.

Please be aware this run is an informal group of runners with a similar interest. It has no formal relationship with Mercia Fell Runners (or anyone else). There is no trained coach. You take part at your own risk as you would if a group of friends just decided to "go into the hills".

On the first Tuesday of the month we meet at Little Stretton instead, by the ford next to the campsite. Please park considerately on the local roads (but obey the signage regarding emergency access) and not in the pub car park. Many of us will adjourn to the Ragleth Inn afterwards. Please note these social runs are not exclusive for Mercia Members. No previous fell running experience is required but you will need running shoes with decent grip (ideally trail or fell shoes) and to carry or wear kit suitable for the conditions. You don't have to be super fit - we run five to eight miles with several stops to regroup, and we will do our best to ensure no-one is left out on the hills
