Junior Fell Championship update & current standings

Harry Shelbourne 240

Harry Shelbourne

Things quietened down a little during July & August, with just 2 of our chosen races taking place amidst the holiday season. Widdop on 15th July saw 7 hardy souls venture across to the Calder Valley, with pick of the results being Isabel Richardson winning the GU12, Matthew Burke 3rd U12 & Annie Stone 3rd GU14. The classic Burnsall Feast races on 22nd August had 8 juniors enjoying the sunshine, with some more great results, notably Calum McFarlane 3rd U10, Isabel Richardson again 1st GU12, Alice Shelbourne 3rd U14, Harry Shelbourne 2nd U16 & Daisy Smith 2nd U18. Eddie Hinchliffe also had a great run in the senior race, finishing 20th overall, ahead of some of us old-timers!

In terms of the championship, with the best 5 races over the series to count, the tables are currently showing the leaders as Henry Parkin (U10), Isabel Richardson (GU12), George Hobbs (U14), Annie Stone (GU14), Harry Shelbourne (U16), Lizzie Deacon (GU16) & Chris Law (U18).

The final race in this year’s championship is a return to Penistone Hill and the Rat Runs on Sunday 11th October. If you’ve only done 4 races, then you need to make sure you’re there or you won’t qualify (mentioning no names, Calum McFarlane, Matthew Burke, Harry Hobbs, Lucy Byram, Seth Waterman & Eddie Hinchliffe)! As there’s bound to be chocolate & sunshine, what could be better?

Hope to see plenty of you there.

Phil Hobbs (28th August)
