Sorry for the delay in getting this report out, but the results weren’t published until last weekend and I was busy over Easter.
Considering it was a Club Championship race, it has to be said that the Senior turnout was disappointing. There were a number of factors for this; it was the start of the Easter holidays, the weather forecast was atrocious (although, in the end it wasn’t too bad) and it is a long drive from Settle.
Six Juniors ran, and judging from the times, there was a sprint finish between Oscar and Sam in the U12 race. The Junior courses might have been short but they were also very steep, so well done to all our Juniors for finishing a tough race.
8 Sebastian Segger-Staveley 11.46
14 Emily Carpenter 13.56 (5th Girl)
13 Douglas Segger-Staveley 09.10
26 Ben Greenep 10.03
36 Oscar Wulf 11.04
38 Sam Greenep 11.05
In the Senior race, it was the Ladies showing the Men how to run. First back was Sally, with Steve taking maximum points in the men’s Club Champs. Another good run from Sabrina and also from Helen who was 2nd LV50. I was the last Settle finisher; Steep rocky descents are not my cup of tea and it showed. However, my spirits were soon revived when Steve’s car “broke down” outside the Eagle and Child in Staveley on the way home!
62 Sally Handford 38.10 (11L)
71 Steve Moor 39.52 (14 V50)
74 Sabrina Gilby 40.36 (12L)
82 Helen Greenep 43.42 (2LV50)
86 Chris Beesley 45.03 (8V60)
