Scout Scar Kendal Winter League

A record 17 hardy harriers juniors lined up at Scout Scar for the 1st Kendal Winter League Race on Sunday 9th January.
There were 64 runners in the U11/U13 race, and it was a fast and furious uphill start! Our 11 athletes had excellent, well-paced, fast finishing runs with everyone giving 100%. It was the first time in a KWL for 8-year olds Stanley and William, congratulations you two for giving it your best! It was also great to see Thomas racing for the harriers for the first time. Mia and Lucy placed very highly in the U11 girls and looked as though they were enjoying it! James and Harry made up the rest of the boys U11 team with determined runs. Ewan, Ben, Francesca and Carl had a great interclub race with their positions switching throughout, right through to the sprint finish!
The U15 had a slightly calmer start with a field of 39 athletes. Jack followed up his Yorkshire silver medal place with an impressive win! Lucy placed highly up the field with a strong run, while Robbie, Mack and Charlie also had great starts to their racing years. Both the uphill endurance and the downhill skill was evident in all our runners.
Charlotte was our representative in the U17s and totally nailed it to come in 1st! This was also after racing the previous day at the Yorkshire Championships 👏👏
Coaches Jess and Rachel took inspiration from the juniors and ran the 4.5mile senior race!
