Pendle Fell Race - 05.04.2008
A local fell race it was a shame not to see more juniors at this event, nevertheless we had some excellent results from the juniors who were there. Thomas Sumner finished 2nd in the U10 boys race, the fast improving Megan Solomon tackled a long 3.5km U12 course to win the girls section a full minute ahead of the 2nd place girl. The U14 boys raced over 4km and Elliott Whylie finished in a great 2nd having been directed the wrong way on the course, Pascal Dark finished 5th.
The U16's course was to the top of Pendle Hill over 4.5km, Ashley Kay set a good pace but was followed yet again by Jonny Bradshaw from Wharfedale, the pair battled hard all the way but Ashley just edged in front to win and both of them finished nearly 2 minutes ahead of the next U16 runner. Luke Gregory also competed well in the same race to finish 7th.
Brenda Robinson 5K, Littleborough - 02.04.2008
Jordan Beard finished 3rd junior overall in a time of 17.38 followed by Joe Johnston 4th junior (18.05), Jack Stringfellow 8th (19.39). Emma Flanagan just returning from holiday achieved a new personal best to finish 1st junior lady in 19.37.
Rivington Pike Junior fell race - 22.03.2008
Some of our juniors competed at the Rivington Pike junior fell race today which is the second oldest fell race in England and is an out and back course to the top of the pike. The snow that was forecast thankfully stayed away but the winds were very strong the further up the course you went. Chloe Law had another good run in the U12 race. The U14 and U16's ran as one race, Ashley Kay set off at a fast pace winning the race only 3 seconds off the course record which considering the high winds was a great performance. As usual Joe Johnston set off steady but picked up the pace on the second half of the race to finish in 3rd, Joe ran a 10k road race the day before so this was an excellent result. Pascal Dark and Jack Stringfellow also competed well but unfortunately there are no results posted yet.
