Yorkshire Fell Racing Champs 2017

Yorkshire Fell Racing Championships – Mytholmroyd – Coiners Junior Fell Race – 1st May 2017

Having competed at the Anniversary Wa! fell race in the Lake District in the English Junior Championships League last Saturday, Charlotte and Jessica Rawstron set off to run in the next fixture in the League Series at Mytholmroyd on Monday morning.

Jessica was up first in the Under 11s, coming in 22nd girl in a tough 1.7km, 400 ft climb.

The Under 13s race (and older categories) doubled up as the Yorkshire Championships – the results are filtered at the end for anyone who is eligible by birth or residence under the usual rules.

Charlotte got off to a decent start on the 2.3km, 480ft climb course and managed to finish 4th girl. With the 2nd and 3rd place girls being from outside of Yorkshire, that meant that she went home as Yorkshire Championship runner-up and Silver medallist (also taking an Easter Egg and big tub of Jelly Babies – as the race was organised by Dave and Eileen Woodhead, I suspect as a carryover from the Bunny Run prizes!)

Also running for Otley was Holly Davey in the Under 15s on the tougher course that went out onto the open, muddier moorland for 3.7km and 600ft of climb – finishing 32nd girl (18th Yorkshire).

Sunday 5th of February Blackburn Winter Warmer 10 k Race.

On Saturday the 4th of February, we travelled to Blackburn for an overnight stay before Jenson Brogden and Aston Brogden took on the Blackburn Winter Warmer 2 k Race the next day. The race was being held at Witton Park so on Saturday afternoon we ventured there to check out the race route. Happy that the boys knew the route, we headed out for a pub tea before an early night. On the Sunday the boys were keen to get back to Witton Park to collect their numbers and timing chips. There were over 200 Juniors in the race with lots of club runners. The race started on the athletics track before looping around the park and then finishing back on the track. The boys did us proud, Jenson Brogden was 6th and Aston Brogden was 12th. Otley got a mention as the boys ran in because all the other runners were local.The race was really well organised and everyone was so friendly! The venue was great and we were very jealous of the track!

Sunday 8th of January- Garstang 2 mile race.

On Sunday the 8th of January, Jenson Brogden took part in the 2 mile Fun Run at Garstang, part of the Garstang 10 k. The course was on open roads and tracked the first loop of the 10 k course. The 10 k runners set off and then ten minutes later the Fun run began. Jenson was feeling nervous after an Autumn/Winter of illness but got stuck in! The slower 10 k runners soon had Jenson and another bunch off runners on their tails and as he battled though the traffic, seniors and a tough hill, he came home strong in 2nd place. The winner was a boy much older and taller than Jenson, who on the last down hill just caught him and commented at the end how impressed he was with Jenson! A good confidence boost and a well organised race.

( No times, as only the 10 k results were recorded)

Monday 14th of November-A special guest!

What an exciting evening! After a few conversations, emails and texts we managed to get Jonny Brownlee down to an Otley Juniors training session. The Juniors were really excited and so were the Coaches and Parents! Jonny watched to begin with and then helped Russ and Andy with some coaching. Jonny made them work really hard and they loved it! We asked Jonny to join in with our relay race at the end and he rose to the challenge, much to the Juniors excitement! A question and answer session followed and then it was autograph and selfie time! The evening was amazing! Jonny you are welcome back anytime!

Leeds Abbey Dash Junior 2 K Race 6th of November

On a very wet and cold Sunday in November a small group of juniors got up early to take part in the Junior Abbey Dash. Hundreds of Juniors ran and the Otley Juniors did us really proud. Holly Davey was first home for Otley followed by Jenson Brogden who sadly ended up in the medical tent due to his bad chest and probably shouldn’t have run! Charlotte Rawston, Aston Brogden, Jess Rawstron and Charlotte Chambers came home strong and I believe this was the first time the Rawstron Girls and Charlotte had run the Junior Dash so a big  WELL DONE to them.
