Firstly; apologies to Ellie Root for missing out her results at the Manchester Tri Club Junior Triathlon at Altrincham. She competed in the Tristar 3 category (300m swim/6km bike/2.4km run) and came 7th out of 13 girls, 13th/24 overall. She also recorded the fastest girls run.
Saturday 14th saw the Lancashire schools Track event over at Stanley Park in Blackpool. Three of our juniors took part; Alice Pier finished 3rd in the intermediate girls 1500m final, running in 5:25 (despite being moved up an age group by her school), Curtis Holt came 9th in his Junior Boys 800m heat with 2:22 and Tom Bradley came 15th in the Junior Boys 1500m final with 5:09.
Also over at Blackpool, on Sunday 15th June was the Blue Light 5 mile road race, organised by Wesham Road Runners. Jordan McDonald and Ryan Clarke made the trip over to Blackpool and finished 11th and 21st out of 95 runners. Well done to both of you!
On the same day, three juniors took part in the Burnley Race for Life at Towneley Park. They don’t produce official results for these events but Beth Quinn, and Heidi Kewin took part and the race was won outright by our very own Ella Dorrington. Well done Ella!
Briony Holt is continuing to make excellent progress in the BOFRA fell race series with another u14 win at Hawkswick on Sunday 15th. She’s now 7th in the championship but her three successive wins put her in a strong position to challenge for a win at the end of the year.
Briony also competed in the FRA championship event at Clougha Pike on Saturday 21st June and won the u12 event, she’s now 2nd in the championship, only one race left and the distinct possibility of a tie for first.
Also at Clougha Pike were Tom Bradley and Dan Bradley who finished 19th (u14) and 36 (u12) respectively. Well done lads.
Eighteen juniors took part, great to see some new faces with Kaylon Cottterill and Kady Thompson taking part in their first race in a Clayton vest. A special mention has to go to our u10 runners; because of a course marking issue they had to do two laps but only found this out at the end of the first lap!
Lastly, we had some excellent results over in Blackburn yesterday, at the Witton Country Park Trail Relay. Send me any pictures that you have and I’ll do a full report on this event next week.
