Juniors at Large; Wednesday 23rd July

DSC_0011The FRA junior championship has now drawn to a close and Briony Holt’s win at Kettlewell has secured her joint first place in the under 12; well done Briony!

The winners cup is on a timeshare; Chloe Rylance of Ambleside gets to look after it for six months then I’m sure it’ll have pride of place in the Holt household.

Our Three Seasons Challenge has finally finished with thirteen members making the trip to  Widdop. The results table has been updated and we’ll organise a prize giving early in the Autumn term. Well done to all who took part,whether you just managed to get to a few races or you won your age group. It’s especially encouraging to see more younger runners coming through in the under 8 and under 10 categories, proof that Marion’s Thursday sessions are increasingly popular and are producing results.


Also in the news; Jordan McDonald was nominated for a Burnley Sports Award as a Rising Star. He attended the prize giving dinner on Thursday 10th July and got to meet five times Olympian and world record  swimmer Mark Foster.



Team Root has been busy at multi sport again; Ellie Root came 6th girl out of 14th in Tri-stars 3 in the Wirral Triathlon on Sunday 29th June and both Ellie & Grace Root took part in the Salt Ayre Triathlon, Grace was 4th girl (out of 6) in supersprint and Ellie was 8th girl out of 22. After Wirral Ellie is currently standing in 10th position in the North West Junior Tri Championships.


Well done to all our runners at the Trawden 7 junior races, you get a mention and a picture in Chris Holdsworth’s race round up HERE.

That’s all for this week, well done to you all, apologies to anyone I’ve missed!
