Juniors at Rivington Pike

This report is brought to you by Briony Holt…….

We had a great turnout in the juniors races at Rivington Pike this Saturday. The sun was out but there were some harsh winds up at the top of the hill that the U14’s and U16’s had to brave! There were 15 junior runners taking part in the second race of the ‘English Fell Championships’ and there were some pleasing results!
In the under 8’s, Rachel Stevenson put in a very promising result to secure 11th girl.RiviPike2014_02
First Clayton runner home in the under 10’s was Jackson McKay coming 5th boy, followed by Keira Stevenson 21st girl and Amelia Dugdale 23rd girl.

Next it was the under 12’s with myself taking 2nd girl, Adam Stevenson 27th boy, Adam Quinn 29th boy, Millie Stubbs 16th girl and Daniel Bradley taking 40th boy .The under 14’s race finally came with them running the same route as the u16’s. Tom Bradley took 23rd boy taking first Clayton harrier home. Next up was Simon Wilshaw 36th boy, closely followed by Ryan Clarke 38th boy. RiviPike2014_07Alice Pier was first under 14 Clayton girl coming 30th girl overall.

The last race of Saturday was the under 16’s with two of our Clayton members racing in it. Curtis Holt was first Clayton member taking 24th boy and Beth Quinn was first Clayton girl taking 25th girl.
Well done to everyone who raced and thank you for all the parents who came and supported us!



Well done to all our runners and a big thank you to Briony for this report. We’d love for other juniors to write race reports as well; just tell Marion if you want to give it a go. All the other pictures are here.
