Over the Edge Challenge

Congratulations to everyone who took part in our 17.5 mile challenge event along the length of Wenlock Edge today.
Thick fog hid the views early on this morning but this burned off after a couple of hours and provided some stunning effects as the views gradually emerged. Everyone made good progress along the route and didn't seem to mind the inevitable muddy sections. Tea and coffee in the sunshine at Wilderhope Manor provided a welcome rest just stop after the halfway point. A slight change was made to last years route near the end, this was done to give walkers and runners better views of the surrounding countryside, unfortunately a rather stubborn patch of fog scuppered this plan. Back in the sunshine at the finish participants enjoyed a well earned cup of soup or cake.
Thankyou to all the cheerfull marshalls along the route who endured a chilly start, without your help these events could not happen and special thanks to Sue who helped massively with the organisation.

  1. Well done Chris and team. I enjoyed marshalling at Harton Hollow. The whole thing was really well organised and the walkers and runners inspiringly cheerful.
