Sunday 27th September – Kirkstall Abbey 7 Junior Races

It was a foggy start to Sunday with Otley AC Juniors this weekend as Holly Davey, Jenson Brogden and Aston Brogden competed in the Kirkstall Abbey Junior Race as part of the Leeds Junior Race Series 2015-2016.

Aston was first up at 9am with the “Mad Monk Meander” a two lap fun run around the Abbey trying to catch the Monk and the Nun.  Aston absolutely smashed the race leading from the start and came in First Place, even beating Alan the Monk!!

Jenson and Holly then competed in the U17 2 mile race.  The fog had now lifted and despite the wet grass on the off-path sections the pair did very well indeed.  Jenson came 4th and Holly 7th overall, 2nd female finisher.  Rather interestingly they both gained PB’s in the race, Holly beat her time from last year by nearly 3 minutes!!  The pair have been training well together over the past few months and taking on board the guidance and expertise of the coaches and this is really starting to show in their race day performances.  Keep up the good work!!
