Well done to the 8 juniors that ran at Embsay in the BOFRA fixture on Sun 15th September.  This was race number 20 out of 21 in our 2019 Junior Club Championships.

Well done to the 11 juniors that that took part in these races – a great turnout considering the wet weather.  My report and the results can be found here
 
This was the last fixture in our Junior Club Championships for 2019.  The final scores in the Championship will now be kept secret until the awards are presented on Tuesday 26th November after training.  Well done to all those that have taken part in any of the Club Championship fixtures this year. 
 
The 2020 Junior Club Championships are likely to start on 5th January with the Scout Scar Kendal Winter League fixture.
 
 
The West Yorkshire Cross-Country League starts on 5th October  at Keighley with subsequent fixtures in the Leeds area on 27th Oct, 17th Nov and 8th Dec (details here http://www.westyorkshireathletics.org.uk/XCMain.htm )  The league is open to all those aged 9 or above on 1st Sept 2019 – age groups (boys & girls) are U11, u13, U15, U17, U20.  In the past we have had several juniors competing in this competitive league. Please let Andy know asap if your child is interested in entering as they will need first to be registered with English Athletics (fee £15 for the year) & we will assist you with this process.
Well done to all those that represented their schools at these very-high standard races at Giggleswick on Sunday 6th October.  Thanks also to all those that helped out by marshaling, helping out with catering or in any other capacity.  The weather stayed fine despite the adverse forecast although the courses were slippery and muddy in places.
 
The results can be found on the event website here  
 
 
From Tuesday 17th September, we will be offering an alternative training session for juniors in school Year 8 and above on Tuesday evenings.  In addition to the existing session geared predominantly for those preparing for competition, there will be an alternative 2 to 3 mile “social run” for those less competitively inclined or new to the sport etc.  All year 8+ juniors will warm up together at 5.45pm then divide into 2 groups around 6.00pm for their separate activities before coming together again at the end of the session.  The social runs will be accompanied by at least 2 adults (coaches,assistants,parent volunteers).  If you know of any children in this age-group (not already in the club), who might be interested in joining these social runs, please do ask them to contact Andy (a free try-out session can be arranged before they commit to joining the club).

Well done to the 8 juniors that took part in the Burnsall BOFRA races on Sunday 1st September.  This was race 19 out of 21 in our 2019 Junior Club Championships.

Well done to all our runners.  It was good to see Carl back in action after his injury.

The next junior club champs race is the Embsay BOFRA fixture on Sunday 15th September and the finale is the Curly Wourly Rat Runs on Sunday 13th October.
