Juniors At Large; Sat 14th June

Our juniors have been busy over the last couple of weeks in a wide range of events.10371926_10152219032643997_7199205769572203690_n

Amelia and Lola Dugdale competed in the Bolton Tri Club Aquathlon, held at West Houghton on June 8th, coming 1st and 2nd place! Well done girls (Lola is only 6 by the way!)

Gracie Root competed in the Supersprint category at the Manchester Tri Club Junior Triathlon at Altrincham today, coming 1st girl and 2nd overall.

Curtis and Briony Holt have been busy in the FRA and BOFRA Championship events this year;

Curtis is 13th in the FRA championship with 2 races to go, after recent strong runs at West Nab & Duddon Valley.

Briony came 1st u12 girl at the FRA West Nab race on May 31st, following it with a 1st u14 girl at the BOFRA Coniston gullies event the following day!

…and if that weren’t enough…..

…she finished 2nd u12 girl at the FRA Turner uphill-only event in the Duddon valley on 7th June, again following it with another win at the BOFRA event in Kettlewell on 8th June!

Briony is now 2nd in the FRA championship (with 2 races left) and her two first place finishes have put her in 5th place in the BOFRA championship with 12 races left (best 8 results count).DSC_0487

Our latest Three Seasons Race was Burnley parkrun on Sat 7th June. Coinciding with the 100th event celebrations (hence all the fancy dress) we had 21 juniors running, several new PBs were recorded and everyone got very wet!
I’m sorry I haven’t the space to put all your names in this report but full results are HERE.

That’s it for this week; this is the first of a (approximately!) fortnightly round up of our junior races. More to come next time, including details of the Lancashire schools T&F event at Blackpool today.

Don’t forget to email me all your race results, apologies if you’ve emailed me already and I’ve not included it, just prod me again!
