Firbank Fell race report & results

Firbank Fell 038

Well done to all those that ran in the 2nd Kendal Winter League at Firbank Fell on 1oth January.

15 of our juniors and 11 seniors took part.  Conditions were cold and windy and the ground extremely boggy.  A violent hailstorm struck just as the senior race was finishing which led to a mad rush for the only covered area – the Settle Harriers tent – which somehow stayed up despite the strong wind.

There were great performances from the juniors with Sonny well to the fore in the U12 race – finishing in 6th place.  He was well backed up by his clubmates who all showed great determination in testing conditions.  A special mention for Dylan – who showed  a big improvement  in this race and Charlotte who also did really well in her 2nd race for the club.

In the U14s, Bob had his highest ever KWL finish with Matt, John (one of the youngest  in the race) & Toby all close behind.  Well done to Erin in her first race as an U14 & Emily who also showed great improvement this week.

In the senior race, there was a great run from Mike – 17th overall and the first over 60.  Carol was 4th lady and first lady 50 once again.  Good performances all round – a good warm-up for Giggleswick !
