Fell Running with Nick

The red and black vest of Sparkhill Harriers has started to infiltrate the ranks of fell runners thanks to the efforts of intrepid harriers Paul Murtaugh and Nick stringer last year. They took part in various Fell Runners' Association fixtures in the peek district, which they are sure enhanced their performance during recent cross country races.

This year nick has been attempting to satisfy his desire for the hills  by competing in 5 fell races
