West Yorkshire Cross-Country League, Keighley, Sat 14th Nov

9 Harriers took part in the 3rd  West Yorkshire Cross Country League fixture held at Cliff Castle, Keighley on the 14th November.

It rained all afternoon making conditions extremely muddy and slippery underfoot.

Our representatives ran really well yet again against most of the top cross-country runners in Yorkshire.

Well done to Oliver and Oscar in the Under 11 boys who ran really well in the very difficult conditions as did Lauren in the girls Under 11 race.  They all showed great determination.

In the Under 13 boys, Seb had another solid run to finish 18th – extending his consistent set of results.  In the Under 15s, Harvey battled hard against very tough opposition.

In the senior ladies race, Carol had a really good run to finish 21st and 2nd W50 finisher, as in the previous fixture.  At half-way, Grace was close behind Carol….. then her shoe came off in the mud !  Grace showed great determination by carrying on and finishing  in her socks and still achieving a good result – 37th overall and 6th in the Under 20 category .

In the mens race, very well done to Chris (4th M60) and Jan,  who had the worst of the weather conditions and had to contend with a  course that had been well and truly trashed by the time it was their time to run !

The final league fixture is on Sunday 6th December at Nunroyd Park, Leeds – could be another muddy one!
