Kendal Winter League 3 – Giggleswick, Sunday 19th January
Wow – what a day ! Settle Harriers fielded a grand total of 44 runners at the Kendal Winter League at Giggleswick last Sunday ! Surely a record for the club.
This included 26 juniors and 18 seniors. Around 16 members were racing for the club for the first time.
The organisation of the races by Giggleswick School was first class and the courses were interesting and challenging. Andy Holden took some great pictures of the stream crossing – look out for them on facebook etc.
We had 23 of the 69 starters in the the Under 12 race, so there was a sea of luminous green vests as the race got under way. Well done to Thomas who finished in 4th place with Seb and Jack (running for us for the first time) close behind in 10th and 12th. Dougie had a great run to finish 21st with Leo (another new member) next home for us in 24th. Emily and Erin were our first girls home and did really well to finish as 5th and 6th girls respectively. The full list of all our finishers is shown in the results below. Really well done to everyone !
In the Under 14s, Honor ran well to finish as 5th girl and Eve took it easy to recover after a hard run the day before in the County Schools Champs. In the Under 17s, James had an excellent run to finish 10th.
Very well done to new recruit Paul Webb who won the race with 19 seconds to spare over Mark McGoldrick in second. Our next man home was Alex in 14th with Sam and Tony 26th and 27th respectively. A great run by Jill put her 6th in the ladies race and first W40. Another high placer was David Timmins who finished 2nd the M60s category. Again, well done to everyone that ran. Hope you have been inspired to run another KWL soon !
