Pendle Hill Junior fell race, Saturday 6th April

From Rachel Carter... It was good to see a good turn out across the age range at Pendle Fell Race on Sat - a counter in the Junior Ilkley Harrier's 2024/25 league. The races start in a muddy field in the village of Barley with the turn point of each race progressing further up Pendle. The ground across the farrmer's fields was extremely soft and muddy after all the ongoing rain, making the course challenging both before and after the main climb up and fast descent off Pendle Hill itself.

U11: Michael Moore - 8th, Ethan Pickwoad 15th, Rose Weston - 21st (4th girl), Isobel Moore - 31st (8th girl)
U15: Robert Carter - 1st, Joseph Bentham - 8th,
U17: Ollie Holder - 3rd

Sam Bentham was 3rd, and George Whiitlestone 87th, in the senior race.

Trawden Junior fell races, Sunday 26th June

Thank you Rachel Carter.... We travelled across the border to Trawden (only 30 mins away) in Lancashire on Sunday to their junior trail races - think dry cross country terrain rather than fell! U11 and U13 completed one lap of Trawden Rec before heading gently down a couple of fields, along a short track before running back up to the Rec for the finish with a goody bag awarded to all finishers! 49 in these age categories took part - predominantly from the surrounding Pendle and Burnley area.
1. Robert Carter 1st U13 boy,
13. Harriet Carter 1st U11 girl.
