On Saturday 22nd the 3rd English Junior Championship race took place in the Newlands valley. The Anniversary Wa fell race, part of the Anniversary Waltz race. There were 5 Settle Harriers running across the age groups. Starting near to Stair the younger age groups climbed up the steep hillside and back down again with the U15 and U17 having a steep starting grassy climb then a run along the ridge to the summit of CatBells then a quick descent round the back of the hill and a cruel long climb back up and down again before the finish. It was a beautiful sunny day with great views across the lakes. A very good course and a set of well organised races.
