Whitestone KWL #3 (23rd Jan 2022) Race Report
14 juniors raced this week on the out and back fell course at Whitestone. Fast starts, a single track course and terrain perfect for speedy descents. We’ll start with the girls this week and their excellent results…
U11 Girls 🌟
1st Mia
2nd Lucy
These two showed their experience from the BOFRA races of last year on their well-paced ascents and sure-footed, smooth descents. Their consistent Tuesday training sessions alongside family runs are really paying off. Super running girls!
U13 Girls 🌟
3rd Francesca
Francesca is another athlete who rarely misses training and she is improving with every race. This result should be a great boost to her confidence, well done Francesca.
U15 Girls 🌟
2nd Lucy
14th Isabella
A great day for the Bagot girls! Lucy followed her sister’s high placing with a 2nd place and an impressive show of her strength and speed. Isabella also had a terrific run in her 2nd KWL, putting in practice all the skills from the quarry hill training sessions. Brilliant running you two.
U11 Boys 🌟
8th Stanley
12th William
There was a bit of argy bargy at the start of the U11/U13 race as 52 sprinted out to get a good position on the single track. Stanley took a tumble but was straight back up and running. This was the first real fell race for these two, as opposed to cross country, and they really embraced it, flying down and sprinting along the finish straight, awesome!
U13 Boys 🌟
6th Ben
10th Carl
11th Ewan
This is a highly competitive category with the biggest field of runners. Ben came absolutely flying downhill, closely followed by Carl and Ewan. These three train together and push each other on in every session and race. Well done boys, what a talented bunch!
U15 Boys 🌟
1st Jack
11th Robbie
15th Mack
18th Charlie
It’s so good to see that we still have strength in numbers as we move up into the smaller, older age categories. Jack led the way with another commanding run. The speed at which all of these runners whizzed past on the downhill was quite a sight! Confident, balanced, determined running from everyone, nice one boys!
