Junior Club Championship Races – Updated 16th March

The finalised Junior Club Championship fixture list can now be seen/downloaded at https://settleharriers.org/juniors-under-21s/junior-championship/ 

For those interested in the BOFRA series, their fixture list can now be viewed here  http://bofra.org.uk/racecalendar/

Details of forthcoming Junior Championships races are below.  Please check race websites regularly though as the list of fixtures cancelled due to coronavirus concerns is getting longer every day…. 

– The next KWL is next Sunday (22nd March) at Elterwater Common (in Langdale).  This one, held in a spectacular location, will be a counter for our Junior Club Championships.

– On the following weekend there are 2 fixtures that will count towards our championship – so juniors have a choice or they some may even opt for both !

Sat 28th March – FRA Junior Championships (Race 1) at Kettlewell.  The FRA Junior Champs races usually have larger fields than KWL races and the standard is higher at the front end of the fields.  So a good test for those of our juniors with high aspirations.  Kettlewell offers a testing course (but not quite as steep as the BOFRA races at Kettlewell later in the year).  Details at https://www.harrogate-harriers.co.uk/races/kettlewell-kaper

Sun 29 March – Helm Hill KWL.  This is the last scoring KWL of the season – so last chance for juniors to get in their 4 races or improve their league positions.  The courses are hilly but runnable – mainly on grassy tracks.

All the KWL information can be found at  http://www.helmhill.co.uk/ including location details & course maps. Please remember the rules about juniors carrying kit at each fixture (waterproof top, hat & gloves)

Please note that, after the 3 cancellations, juniors finishing 4 KWLs or more will receive a special medal and award from the League in April.
