10 Harriers took part in the first of four fixtures in the West Yorkshire Cross Country League. This is the 3rd year running now that Settle have taken part in the league.
The race was held in Thorne Park, Wakefield, a difficult place to find but a good cross-country venue with some gentle climbs and descents along with some fast flat grassland sections.
Our 10 representatives ran really well against most of the top cross-country runners in Yorkshire. These races are a great way to develop speed and speed endurance in a period when there are less fell races taking place.
The Settle placings were…..
U11 Boys: 25th Douglas Segger-Staveley 5:59; 50th Oliver Sampson 6:39 (league debut)
U13 Boys: 15th Sebastian Segger-Staveley 11:13
U15 Girls: 25th Honor Jeffrey 16:32
U15 Boys: 20th Thomas Marshall 16;15; 38th Harvey Stroh 18:45
Senior Ladies : 31st Rachel Hill 24:22 (4th W40); 50th Grace Jeffrey 26:16 (9th U20)
Senior Men : 104th Josh Westwood 42:09; 162nd Chris Beesley (M60) 51:59
