Junior Fell Championship 2016 update

From the snow and ice at the Rat Runs to the glorious sunshine at Hoppits, the first three races in this year's Harriers Junior Championship have certainly provided some variety. So far, 14 juniors have taken part and we have been rewarded with several top three places throughout all the age-groups.

With the best five races over the series to count, the tables don't mean too much at the moment and the competition will really begin to hot up in the next couple of months as the English Championship races start. Next up is the first of those English counters, with the Todd Crag races on Saturday 16th April. Hosted by Ambleside AC from Rothay Park in the town, these should be a great set of courses heading out to Loughrigg and back - bound to be some steep bits!

We had a great showing in last year's English Championship, with the club finishing 2nd overall, so let’s try to get as many juniors up to Ambleside as possible and start as we mean to go on!
