Really well done to everyone that ran at Giggleswick ! Loads of impressive performances in difficult conditions.
There were 78 Settle Harriers out there running, 11 more than last year – and a new club record turnout for a fixture ! The breakdown was as follow…………….
U12s – we had 28 runners
U14s – we had 10 running
U17s – 4 running
Seniors – 36 running
The course was excellent (if challenging) and made even more fun with the addition of a covering of snow ! Many thanks to our marshals – Mike, Andrew, Ruth, Richard, Craig & Edie. Many thanks also to Fergus & all those at Giggleswick School who helped put on the fixture. Many thanks as well to our supporters – particularly those juniors who stayed on to support the seniors.
Alex has already posted some good photos of juniors on the Settle Harriers Facebook page.

There were some great performances from our 12s with Sonny leading our boys home in 7th place with Hamish, Ben, Charlie and Jake (in his first race for the club) all in hot pursuit. Emily Hutchinson was our 1st girl home (8th girl) but again she was closely followed by Edie, Lily & Charlotte. Well done to all that took part – especially those making their debuts for Settle Harriers
No less than 10 took part from settle – one third of the field ! Great runs from them all with Seb , Bob, Matt & Toby all making the top ten. John lost ground when he fell on the approach to the stream – ending up covered in mud from head to foot. he kept going though to finish in a battling 11th. Erin, also new to this age-group did really well to finish as 7th girl.
Great to see 4 Under 17 girls out for us. Honor was first back for us – an excellent result to finish as 5th girl. Eve, Rosie & Millie adopted the team approach – finishing close together in 7th – 9th place.
Another phenomenal run by Mike to finish 14th, first Harrier home (so gaining maximum club championship points) and also (again) first vet 60 in the race. Close behind was Alex in 15th with James also having a fine run to make the top 20. Barry also showed good form to finish as 2nd vet 60 For the ladies, Rachel was 3rd lady home (1st LV40) and Carol 4th (1st LV50). Grace Jeffrey ran well and scored useful points towards the club Under 21 championship. Lots of others also made either their Settle Harriers or their Kendal Winter League debuts. I hope everyone enjoyed it the race and that they will have been inspired to take part in more races soon !
