Kendal Winter League 1 – Scout Scar, Sunday 5th January

Well done to all those who competed in the 1st Kendal Winter League fixture at Scout Scar last Sunday.  Settle Harriers, with 18 runners out, were well represented despite the Club Handicap being held the day before.  The senior field of 196 runners was a KWL record.

The course was great (with a bit of everything) and conditions were not too bad, just a cold wind until the later stages of the senior race, when the rain started.


In the Under 12s, well done to Emily and Connie who were both taking part in their first ever KWL race.  Thomas led the field up the hill, then had problems, but held on well to finish 5th.  Seb was next in 10th, the day after competing in the Yorkshire Cross-Country Trials for Under 13s – where he did really well to finish 47th.  Bob & Erin also ran well as did Douglas who has several more years in this age-group.

In the Under 17s, James ran well, despite a foot problem, to finish 11th.



Brian ran a blinder to lead home the Settle Harriers contingent just ahead of Sam and Tony.  Judy was our first lady home ahead of Helen, the runnaway winner of the handicap the day before.

Next 2 Kendal Winter League fixtures

Sunday 12th January at Firbank Fell – another cracking course nice and local (near Kendal).  It would be great to have another big turnout from the club – seniors and juniors.

Sunday 19th January at Giggleswick – even more local !  Let’s try and outnumber Helm Hill in this one – no excuses !
