A massive well done to the 21 junior harriers who braved the epic rain, wind and cold of Birkrigg Common on Sunday ! They really did give us a stunning display of great running in very challenging conditions and finished with smiles on their faces.
In the U11/U13 race there were an impressive 95 starters, desperate to get running just to warm up! Jack placed very highly once again in 2nd place for the U13s. Finn and Harry haven’t missed a Winter League race yet and they continued in impressive form. It was Ethan’s first race for Settle Harriers and his dad’s too in the senior race, hopefully the first of many for the Wards! Ewan, Fred, John, Ben, Jack, Carl, Charlie and Mack made up the rest of the Settle Juniors boys in the field and all ran superbly. We were equally well represented by our girls as Lucy, Francesca, Bella, Mabel, Jessica and Martha showed us how it’s done, running with strength and determination.
In the U15 race Charlotte, Martha and Ned had a longer course to pace themselves over and they looked majestic on the downhill, navigating the muddy corner with ease and finishing strongly, well done! Emily (U21) ran brilliantly once again with the seniors over the 5km course.
It was treat to watch these races and well worth the journey and the weather.
