Anniversary Wa (FRA Junior Champs) 1st May – race report from Matt

 

 

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.

 Settle Results below.

U11:

15:Jack Sanderson   10:48

U13:

40:Douglas Segger-Staveley   14:20
