It was windy but fortunately sunny for the 30th Jack Bloor Fell Races on Ilkley Moor on Tuesday 12th May.  The wind meant no midgies though which was a welcome bonus !

It was great to see a record Settle Harriers junior turnout for these races which also count towards our club’s junior championships.  We had no less than 21 turning out in their luminous green vests – and we had representatives in all 4 junior races.  Not only that, but we had unprecedented success with 5 of our athletes finishing in “podium” positions.

There were wins for Douglas, Erin and Jack and 3rd places for Sebastian and Eve.  We also had 4th place finishes for Jimmy, Matt & Emily and 5th places for Connie & Daisy.  There were lots of other brilliant performances too.  So really well done to everyone for taking part and showing such fantastic enthusiasm.  Hope everyone enjoyed the famous jack Bloor cakes afterwards as well!
