Again a good turnout from Pendle runners on a murky day in Kendal.
First ran Ruby Schofield in the U11 girls who came in very strongly at
No 13 – well done Ruby.
Our next event was the U13 Boys which saw a
fantastic performance from Kai Atkins who came in 5th out of a field of
44. Joe Lonsdale followed in 16th place followed by Gregan Baker in
21st place. Jacob Van Geffen came in 24th but had time to incorporate
some acrobatics down the muddy slope, picking himself up and carrying
on with muddy legs and torn pants ! Closely followed by Harry
Schofield and Timmy Barnes in 27th and 29th place respectively. The
U13 Team finished overall in 3rd position – Well done once again.
Adele Ogden had a great race for the Under 15 Girls coming in in 19th
position. For those of you that don’t know the course it has quite a
hill in the middle of the course where they run up and around a pylon –
nearly all the runners had to make this ascent at least twice !
Under 15 Boys saw exceptional performances from Matthew Barnes and
James Marchant who came in 4th and 5th with Tiarnan Crorken following
closely behind in 11th place. James had a strong run today and appears
to be almost back to his former fitness after having a couple of years
of injuries – brilliant run James.
Matthew Dutton and Josh Ingham
represented Pendle in the U17 boys with brilliant performances as the
weather became colder and murkier ! For the Fell Runners amongst us,
Farleton Knott had now disappeared from view in an unwelcoming cloud !
They finished strongly in 11th and 21st position.
Finally, Faye Holden
ran a great race in a big field of senior ladies, not put off by the
steep hill and slippery mud slope, mananged to stay on her feet and
finish in style for Pendle Ladies.
Next race is Red Rose at Bolton
next Saturday so let us have a good turnout again for Pendle !
that were on the site last night in this post and the preceding one. This may be due to the way that they were transferred from facebook. I will try and sort this out asap, however in the meantime the photos are all on the Pendle AC facebook site.
