As long fell races go, the Stretton Skyline is a fairly gentle and civilised affair - taking in all the scenic hills that encircle the town of Church Stretton in Shropshire. It's 19 miles, but with a relatively small amount of climbing (4500ft) up Long Mynd (twice!), Ragleth, Caer Caradog and The Lawley. Simon Roberts came 12th (I think!) in the race on Sunday, missing the 3 hour barrier by one minute. Perfect sunny weather and an excellent friendly event with around 100 runners from many different clubs and areas.
