Springtime in Shropshire (SINS) 2017 has just passed and the Medlock Family and Rob Hick represented WSX there. As we’ve come to expect now, Lyra had a great run on the first day at Long Mynd, coming 1st in W12. Jolyon also came 1st on M40S and Eskarina 3rd on W10B. Rob didn’t fare quite so well – though I’m sure he put every ounce of effort into his run, as he always does. Well done to them all.

The first of the SWOA Summer Relay Series is starting this Sunday at  Lawns Park, Swindon and we have two teams entered: Wessex Raiders (the ‘A’ team obviously) consisting of Roger and James Crickmore with Jason Falconer. The other team – Wessex Wonderwomen (need I say more?!) comprises myself, Tina Stratford and Tracy Crickmore. Wish us luck!

PLEASE don’t forget to pre-enter our Poole Town Race on June 18th, and let me know (if you haven’t already) if you’re available to help on the day.

Our Local Events schedule (May to August) can be found on our Events page. The next event is WIM’s Club Night at Milldown, Blandford next Monday, June 5th.

Details are on their website –

– and please don’t forget to email Chris Branford to reserve a map as it makes life a lot easier.

That’s all for now!
