We had a dry day at last, hurray!! Conditions were chilly and windy but good underfoot for this long course. Well done to the 11 juniors who braved the weather and all put in marvellous performances. The races got off to a very prompt midday start and all the U11s and U13s ran together in the first race. This gives a wonderful, huge field and also means that the age range is from 8-12, making pace judgment tricky. Our runners are really learning to run at a pace that works for them and it’s showing in each race. They were all amazing to watch, running with such determination.
A special mention this week goes to James Skeldon who ran in his first Winter League race and I’m sure had a smile on his face throughout, something we can all aspire to! Also well done to Ned Whittaker, our representative in the longer, tough U15 race and Annabel Hinds who finished 3rd in the U11 girls race.
