Despite the lure of chocolate and the lovely weather, we had a lower than usual Settle Harriers turnout for these races held on the moors near Howarth on Sunday 8th October. It was good to see several of our youngest members taking part and enjoying themselves though.
This fixture was the last one counting towards our Junior Club Championships for 2017. The placings for this will now be kept secret until the prize presentation evening in late November !
We had 4 under 9s running a short loop that involved two ascents of the steep face of the quarry. Well done to Carl, Ben, Francesca & Mabel who were all well up in the large field.
Under 11s up to Under 15s all started off together and ran a 1 mile loop also involving two cliff-face ascents but with a flatter but muddy circuit added. Well done to our U11s – Jack, Ned, Oliver, Lucy and Jessica and to our Under 13s, Martha and Lauren.
Simone, our only Under 17, ran two laps of the course – approx 3km.
