Well done to the 29 members (16 juniors & 13 seniors) that ran at Birkrigg Common in the 5th KWL fixture – this was also race 2 in both our senior & junior club championships. The course was slippery (especially the new start & finish in the old quarry), the weather mizzly but nothing like as bad as forecast – quite good running conditions generally.
Our U12s all showed great determination with Sonny again leading the way with his 8th position. He was followed by the Greeneps – both Ben and Sam having terrific runs and Ben achieving (I think) his highest ever KWL position. Well done also to Olivia who had a terrific run and was our first girl home.
Toby had a fine run in the U14s, just pipping Bob to the line on this occasion. Well done also to John & Tom. In the longish Under 17 race, Honor showed good form to finish 4th girl and score valuable league points.
In the senior race, Mike Egner was once again first Harrier home (and 1st Vet 60 in the race of course)– but this time he was pushed hard by James Annan with Mike just getting away on the final climb to claim maximum club championship points. 3rd Harrier was Steve Proctor with another good run. In the ladies championship, Carol (4th/1st W50), Grace Jeffrey & Helen Greenep were the 1st 3 Harriers back.
