The juniors had a terrific start to the fell running year at the Scout Scar Winter League races with an impressive 12 athletes out on the hills! It was brilliant to see everyone giving their all and running so well. The races were tough, fast and muddy; perfect preparation for our ‘home fixture’ next week.
In the U11 girls Annabel came an amazing 5th (10:02) in her first outing for Settle Harriers, Francesca continued in fine form to finish 12th (11:15) and Elouise, also racing for the first time, was a fantastic 14th (12:15). Well done girls!
Ben was 12th U11 boy with a super-fast 9:29 and Harry ran an excellent race to finish his first Harriers race in 34th (14:59). Really brave running by both boys in this fast-paced race which was combined with the U13s.
In the U13 girls race we were represented by Lucy who came 9th (9:38) and Jessica in 20th (11:02). They both ran incredibly, looking strong and smooth over tricky terrain.
Mack and Finn ran in the U13 boys and finished 16th (8:38) and 23rd (9:10). Great running and pace judgment by both boys in a race that went off as though it was a 100m sprint!
Oliver and Charlotte have moved into the U15s and both had super races to finish as 11th U15 boy and 8th U15 girl.
Finally, Emily Crossley had a fine run in the very tough senior race to finish as 3rd U21 lady.
Congratulations to you all and we hope to see even more harriers at next week’s Giggleswick fixture!
