August Race Round-Up

A number of juniors have been racing over the holidays and achieving some great results.

Here are just a few of the recent highlights (for full results see the relevant BOFRA or FRA website page…

England Junior Mountain Running Team – Trial at Sedbergh 

Sebastian Segger-Staveley (Seb) & Thomas Marshall took part in this U17 race in an attempt to gain selection for England for the Junior Home Countries International for Mountain Running.  They needed to finish in the top 8 in order to gain selection and both ran really well and came very close with Seb finishing in 14th & Thomas in 15th place.  10 of the runners ahead of them will be too old to be eligible next year – so both Seb & Thomas have an excellent chance to gain selection in 2018 !  The results of the trial can be found by clicking on this link  England Trials
