No less than 25 Settle Harriers took part in the BOFRA races at Burnsall. This included 17 of our juniors as the races formed part of the junior club championships. This is an amazing venue, particularly when then the suns shines as it did on this occasion.
In the Under 9s races, a special mention and well done to Jack Sanderson who raced as a Settle Harriers for the first time and to Rio who was our first home in 9th. All our runners (Sam, Oscar and Connie were the others) finished within 23 secs – a real sea of luminous green ! Well done to all.
In the Under 12s, again our runners all packed closely with Dougie first back in 20th overall after a very fast descent. Close behind were John and Hamish. Erin was our first girl home (9th girl overall).
In the Under 14s, Thomas hurt his ankle on the descent, but still kept going to finish 6th with Bob, Seb and Matthew all having good runs not far behind.
8 of our seniors tackled this classic course with an incredibly steep and technical descent through thick heather and over a high stone wall at one point. Josh showed great descending skills to finish just ahead of Mike with Mike taking the first M50 prize just a day after finishing 7th in the World Masters Championships in Wales (M55 category). Well done to Alastair who tackled this event for the first time and Barry who was leading M60. jill was our first lady home – also showing great descending skills
It was a great afternoon out – well done to everyone that took part !
