It was raining hard and the cloud was down when we arrived for these races – a great shame for the village of Quernmore, who put on these races as part of their annual gala.

Fortunately, the rain stopped in time for the junior races then continued to improve throughout the afternoon.  11 Settle Harriers took part in the junior races (which were fixture no. 12 in our junior club championships).

Our juniors had a field day, taking home 4 winners trophies, a winning team trophy in the Under 10s and we also had three 2nd place finishers.  But well done to everyone that ran – they all seemed to enjoy themselves at this very friendly and informal gala with excellent cakes.  Well done also to our 3 seniors who negotiated the low cloud and he slippery rock up on the Pike.
