The Junior Winter Road Races took place within the confines of Beaumont Park on Sunday 28 th of March on a bright, breezy and sunny day which was a pleasant change compared with the snow, sleet and hail of recent years.

The under 11 girls were first off and the youngest runner Eleanor Hoyle set off with a purpose and although many thought she had set off to fast, she showed great promise to hold the lead all the way coming home from another new runner Lily Booth who had moved through the field from a mid field start. These were followed home by Imogen Cargill, again one of the youngest runners on the day in third place. Some of the more experienced runners had a battle within the race with Erica Byram this time just outdoing her sister Lucy in a reversal of placing at Xmas and Olivia Sykes continuing her strong winter form to take the fastest time.

In the under 11 boys race 6yr old McKenzie Gill running as a guest ran a remarkable race to cross the line first with his actual time only being bettered by the four most experienced youngsters. Behind McKenzie, Finn Kerry had a good run although his attention began to wander at the end and only the urgings of what was a large crowd of spectators made him concentrate again and he was able to hold off the fast finishing Henry Cash who was making his debut. Next Home was bailey Bedford whose brother Bradley had set off last but produced the fastest time, but with 9 athletes being covered by less than 30 seconds, and all in the final uphill straight at the same time it led to some exciting sprint finishes.

Aaron Arthur’s winter training is starting to pay off and he had an excellent run in the Boys under 13 race to come through and win, comfortably holding off Lewis Byram who ran the fastest time. William England finished strongly to take 3 rd place pulling away from Eddie Hinchliffe who was 4 th in the last lap.

The improvement shown by Sophie Spencer continued and she produced one of the best performances of the day to win the Under 13 girls race by almost 40sends and it was when comparing her race time with Amira Mellor who ran the fastest time in coming second that it can be seen she is getting closer all the time. The other Sophie in the race Williams showed great determination to keep Lucy Farquhar at bay to finish 3 rd. A special word to two newcomers Lydia Whiting and Sarah Day who produced encouraging performances and who will receive a more lenient handicap in the next race.

In the Under 17 races Ruby Sykes chased Alex France all the way and managed to overhaul her inside the last 200yrds, whilst Michael Booth showed how his confidence has grown after running in most of the big cross country races of the winter by producing a strong run to close down on Daniel Ellis and move smoothly past him to win.
