February was a busy month and saw plenty of Juniors doing park runs, fell and track events, showing off the Black and Whites! Particularly strong turnout for the Ilkley fell race and also, much further afield, at the track meet in Sheffield. So, this month the prizes go to Will O’ Neill and Imogen Webster, who turned out for the both of those big events. Imogen also did two 5k park runs at Leeds. That’s a lot of running.
Report from Gail: No results in yet but the following children braved the windy weather and the killer hill in the final PECO XC race of the year: School Years 4-6- Jenson Brogden and Kieran Green. School years 7-12 Holly Davey
Report from Gail: Aston Brogden took part in the Roundhay Junior Park Run yesterday. Despite very windy conditions he finished well in 6th place out of 72 runners. His time of 9.54 wasn’t a PB but it was his fastest time on the Winter Course. Anyone who does this Junior Park Run should note that the run goes back to the Summer Course on Sunday 15th of March.
Just discovered, via a senior race report, that there is the Esk Valley/Northern Runner winter and summer series of fell races. Check it out if you are interested… http://www.eskvalleyfellclub.org/fixtures/fell/Race%20_Calendar.pdf
